  • [03] Cyprus - Turkey - Document Nicosia, May 25 (CNA) - The Cyprus government is taking every precaution regarding Turkish treats against Cyprus, as the consequences of a possible materialisation of these threats would be tremendous, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said here today, adding however that Cyprus is moving forward with its accession to the European Union. Invited to comment on a Greek Foreign Ministry's top secret document, leaked to the press, stating that "Turkish treats should be taken seriously under consideration, given that a scenario for creating a conflict either in Cyprus or the Aegean on the eve of Cyprus' accession to the EU should not be excluded", Kasoulides said "what we did and continue to do is take any threat seriously, irrespectively of the possibilities of its implementation, which are very few".

  • [04] Cyprus - Turkey - British shadow Foreign Secretary London, May 25 (CNA) - British shadow Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary Francis Maud stated last night that Turkey should urge the Turkish Cypriot leadership to help, by making concessions, in finding a solution to the Cyprus question and pointed out that the Cyprus issue "is a problem in making progress with Turkey's own application to membership of the European Union". He said the Conservative Party is committed to help in accomplishing a resolution of the long-standing issue of Cyprus, divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
