EU Council Trip

Asked if the reason the Brussels trip was so short was because the "Turkey thing was all sewn up", the PMOS said one could never assume agreement, and it was unwise to do so. We felt it was in the interests of the EU as a whole, and it was in the interests of Turkey that we got an agreement to negotiations next year. We felt that was reachable at the summit, but this was a EU of 25 countries, and Turkey had its own interests to safeguard, therefore it could never be assumed that an agreement could be reached. We were travelling in hope, but not in certainty.
