Turkey should enter into consultations with the Cyprus and other neighbouring countries over plans for the construction of a nuclear plant in the area of Akkuyu, said Cypriot MEP Takis Hadjigeorgiou.



Addressing an EU Turkey Joint Parliamentary Committee, Hakjigeorgiou said that Turkey uses the fact that negotiations with the EU on the Chapter of Energy are frozen to avoid its contractual obligations under international treaties such as EURATOM which provide for transparent procedures over nuclear plans.

Turkeys refusal to enter into a dialogue and consult with Cyprus and other neighbouring countries over the matter is in contrast with its position that it wishes to become a member of the EU, he added.





What do you think, should Turkey enter into dialogue?

France is covered with nuclear power stations. I doubt that they entered talks with the Brits before building them

Why consult, if there are going to ignore their views. I suspect they will consult as much as the RoC consulted Lurucadis, before building an incinerator 1 mile from Lurucina, and bring all the rubbish from all over Cyprus to burn. We thank hem from the bottom of our hearts for poisoning our lands.



So back to the question. Yes they should , but will they, like hell.

Given the earthquake situation in Cyprus... i.e. little and often it would be madness to build a nuclear plant here.

Given what we now know about how unsafe and expensive this 'free' power is.... should anybody be building nuclear power stations?

I don't think there is any requirement in international law

to consult with neighbours...and nobody else does either



the greek cypriot MEP is quite correct that this may affect

turkey's eu hopes, if they still have any: but do remember

nicolas sarkozey's 2007 "innapropriate" killer-remark

and angela merkel's strident support for this view recently



it is a sad aspect of their recent history that greek cypriot

politicians are energetically kicking against an open door

as far as knobbling turkey is concerned, euro politicos

are already doing it for them, for more parochial reasons

Don't fool yourselves the Turk know that they will never be admitted to Europe, the French and the Greeks will see to that.

the decision to go nuclear would, indeed be foolish. they should take the decision to apply the law that they have already passed and eencourage foreign investment in alternative energy production. they coulod also remove the 18% VAT on eco energy products

ibrahim,



there's a very big difference between greek/greek cypriot,

and franco-german disapproval of turkey joining



as regards the two mediterranean states this would evaporate

if the turkish army abandoned cyprus, a topic sometimes debated

inside the eu, but of little general interest



french and german opposition is though, intractible:

since it relates to the reluctance of their voting publics

to accept any more muslim neighbours (france),

or encourage a larger ethnic turkish population (germany)



the french president and more recently angela merkel have

made their views brutally clear on a number of occasions



britain and sweden support turkey but have little influence,

especially since franco-germany lead the largest voting bloc



...sad to say many contributors to this forum still believe

the spoilers put out by those few who must know far better



on the nuclear question, any criticism from hostile sources

will simply make turkey even more decided

I hear that Turkey is planning to build a nucular power plant on the old copper swamp in the TRNC.

This is another example of what happens when you exclude TR from the "club".

As Lyndon B. Johnson said about J. Edgar Hoover, "I'd rather have him inside the tent, pissing out, than outside, pissing in."

Oh I don't know Vaughan, I thought it was profound enough to have three repetitions, I have to say it made me giggle at least the first time
