It's pretty bad isn't it ? Everything is so complicated in that area and a real hot spot, all it will do is bring the troubles with them if they join the EU.
Does the rest of Europe really want to end up being peace maker between it's member states and countries that have been so disposed to cruelty of the highest order, mental and physical.
EU membership will not change Turkey's built in culture, because they are so proud of Persian and Arabic roots and will probably take a couple of generations to exterminate.
If they can't give recognition to Kurds call for autonomy after so long, but refuse any 'rights' to them, what on earth is their point ?
Can't stand that little Turkish political leader, he looks a sneaky, slimy, little snake. Why should Europe end up funding their internal war against the Kurds, as that is what will happen.
Too many wars now.
