    Turkey will decide on Cyprus, says Clerides

    Limassol, Feb 5 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides believes that at the end of the day Turkey and not the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash will take the final decision on a settlement in Cyprus, to serve Ankara's own interests.

    President Clerides reiterated his view that there will be historic developments in 2003 with regard to Cyprus, least of all because there are pressure levers that will affect Turkey's European aspirations and policies.

    Referring to his decision to seek a limited term in office in this month's presidential elections, Clerides said that a change of negotiator in the middle of negotiations could cause problems in the peace process.
