Hurriyet Daily News - The European Union agreed on Friday to open chapters concerning "Freedom of movement of capital" and "Information society and media" in accession negotiations with Turkey. The two new chapters will bring the total number of chapters opened to 10. The EU has regularly opened only two chapters in Turkey's accession negotiations in each presidency term.
