In recent years, the EUâ€™s newest members â€“ having identified a number of shared interests that make collaboration between them desirable, if not inevitable â€“ have begun to speak with a single voice on a range of key areas of EU policy. Some of their shared interests have yet to be articulated, however. One of them, and among the most important, is the new member statesâ€™ support for future EU enlargement, including Turkeyâ€™s EU accession. With Turkey in sore need of an advocate that can make a strong case on behalf of its EU bid, Ankara and the â€śnew Europeâ€ť should reassess the importance of their relations, define areas of common interest and intensify cooperation. From the EU-10 perspective, increased cooperation with Turkey promises to deliver positive results in a number of policy areas, including immigration, energy security, trade and foreign affairs.
