The paper explores the economic and foreign policy aspect of the proposed Turkish accession to the European Union. The paper reveals that the European Union, taking into account the security environment in the last years, needs the Turkish state but Turkey would have to resolve her political problems with the Kurdish population, with Greece, and Cyprus. The paper offers a general overview of the EU's foreign policy in regard to the Middle East and shows how, with Turkey as a member state, the EU can have a representative voice in the fight against terrorism in the region, as well as in the direct contacts with the Mediterranean states.
