Course Objective The EU is the most important organization of Europe which has had a crucial place in international system for 300 years. Through the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) which has been materialized by Masstrich Treaty of 1992, the EU has an intention to get rid of its political weakness. It will not be wrong to claim that in the future the EU will be more effective in world politics as well as in the Middle East in the frame of CFSP in spite of the reluctance of the UK-led Atlantic group. Given the pleasure of the Middle East peoples in welcoming the EU?s increasing influence in the region in order to balance the USA, it is significant to examine Brussels?s policies toward the region, especially in terms of Turkey which belongs to the both region.
