Ok, You Are Welcome Now

Austria withdrew its objections and formal talks opened yesterday between the EU and Turkey. This is not well known but Turkey had first applied for EU membership 40 years ago. 40 years! That country has sure been patient.

Obviously, this is politics and this issue is not yet over. Only talks about letting Turkey joining the EU have begun and there is a long road ahead but for a country that waited 40 years for this day, this must feel very sweet indeed.
