Turkey does not need to choose between the EU and SCO. Not only have these two entities two different structures, one being a supranational economic/political union, the other merely an instrument for bilateral and multilateral cooperation, but Turkey can also engage each of them more actively without alienating the other side. This is, however, easier said than done, and will require proactive yet careful diplomacy on Ankara’s behalf. In the meantime, the biggest mistake that the EU (and SCO) can do is to demand Turkey to pick sides.
