This report expresses concerns about the implications of Turkish accession to the EU for the security of the EU external border, noting that Turkey's membership would extend this up to Iran, Iraq and Syria. However, the Committee also believes that the risks are outweighed by the potential benefits - partly in terms of the standards that Turkey will be required to meet to become an EU Member, but largely owing to the opportunities it will bring for increased cooperation.
