He pointed out that Ankara will benefit more than anybody else if it were to change its tune on Cyprus and end the island's division and occupation.

    Speaking after a meeting here with President Glafcos Clerides, he also said he was confident that the European Council in December will invite Cyprus and other candidate countries to join the Union.
