EU accelerating Turkey's EU membership application next Thursday

The EU is opening a new chapter in Turkey's membership application next week.

A UK spokesman in Brussels told Associated Free Press:
In March, all member states agreed to open Chapter 33, during the Netherlands (six-month EU) presidency. This is a technical step to implement that agreement.
David Cameron has been one of the most vocal supporters of Turkey's EU membership application and there is even a dedicated team at the British embassy in Ankara to help Turkey join the EU.
