Freezing Turkey EU Membership Means

Such a move alone does not solve anything at all and is counterproductive. Some of the primary negative consequences of this move might be:

1- Influx of refugees from Turkey to the EU.
2- A good bye to Cyprus Talk between Greece & Turkey.
3- More chaotic military activities of Turkey in Iraq, Syria and against Kurds.
4- Turkey might bandwagon to Russia & China (Erdogan has talked about it recently; joining the Shanghai Treaty).


Note: Whether we like it or not, Erdogan has the upper hand in comparison with USA-the EU, based on many reasons.
