Is there significance in asking “If Turkey has lost its hope of becoming a member of the European Union, why should it compromise so much on Cyprus?” Put aside the awkward question of “Is Turkey a negotiating party in the Cyprus talks?”A settlement on Cyprus cannot and should not be a bargaining tool for either the EU or Turkey in their unending love-hate relationship. Unfortunately, with the EU admitting in 2004, that Greek Cypriots should join the club days after they premeditatedly murdered a United Nations-brokered settlement plan, unfortunately, the Cyprus issue has become a negotiating chip in Turkey-EU affairs. The question thus becomes relevant.
