No big issue in Austria

Since Aus­tria is not a mem­ber to NATO, its enlarge­ment seems to be of no great con­cern for the coun­try. The enlarge­ment of the EU is seen – depend­ing on which coun­try – as a pos­i­tive or neg­a­tive thing. The admis­sion of Croa­t­ia is seen as use­ful and wel­comed, but the admis­sion of Turkey is – to put it blunt­ly – not want­ed. The Euro­pean Neigh­bour­hood Pol­i­cy itself is a rather sel­dom dis­cussed issue and no inter­est­ing infor­ma­tion or state­ment could be found, except from the news itself that this pol­i­cy approach exists and is seen as a use­ful tool to set var­i­ous stan­dards and help devel­op the coun­tries inte­grat­ed in this policy.
