Cyprus is already an EU member state. Maybe you're referring to Northern Cyprus?

Turkey, Cyprus, Azerbaijan can't ever be part of the European Union EU. In another Continent.

Those Yugoslavian republics could be, although. Including Serbia, especially.

There are lots of Europe countries with no Muslims, or close to zero.
Cyprus is definitely part of the EU and been so since 2004.

Turkey is very rich in Ancient Greek and Roman ruins and it would be similar if you visit Greece and Rome. It was also a very important part of the Greek world for thousands of years, and was very culturally European.

That is strange with Non-Western Music, as I am sure Westernised music is very common there. BTW in South East Asia which I have travelled western music is very common, and what I find is most music radio stations in Asia play western music. If you don't believe me then listen to Radiogarden app on the music there. I am sure it is the same in Turkey too.

BTW Bulgaria which a EU member since 2007 has the highest number of mosques per capita in Europe and the country ranks next to Arab countries with its total of 1200 mosques, according to data of Eurostat. With the conservative dressing I am sure if you go to the Western European cities you see many people wear that there.

Actually I looked at the stats of Muslims in Europe and it seems the only country in Europe that does not have muslims is San Marino. https://www.muslimpopulation.com/Europe/

Northern Cyprus is legally part of the EU but its membership is suspended due to Turkish occupation of it which the EU does not recognise.

Well because it's not. 97% of Turkey is in Asia not Europe, hence why it's also historically been called Asia Minor.

Istanbul straddles the Bosphorus straight between Asia and Europe so even Istanbul isn't strictly European.

Now if we were talking about Edirne, now yes that is Europe.

I consider both countries to be part of Europe, even if they're south of the Caucasus mountains.
