    Accession victory for all people of Cyprus, Papadoupoulos says

    by Maria Koniotou

    Athens, Apr 17 (CNA) - This is not a victory for us and a defeat of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash but a victory for all the people of Cyprus, President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos told a press conference here today after the conclusion of the European Conference, referring to the signing of the Accession Treaty by Cyprus yesterday.

    Invited to comment on the fact that Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul, whose country does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974, did not attend the signing ceremony, Papadopoulos said ''the Turkish delegation has the right to create problems for itself'', adding that ''this is a problem that concerns only Turkey and the EU and not us''. He also noted that he bumped into Gul this morning and that they shook hands.

    As to the measures regarding the Turkish Cypriots the Cyprus government intends to implement, Papadopoulos said that they are measures aiming to reinforce Turkish Cypriots and give them the message that there is hope for them to share all benefits from Cyprus' accession. Furthermore, he expressed hope that they will be announced within the next ten days.

    He explained that some of the measures would be implemented by the government itself, some would be examined in cooperation with the EU, in order to be in line with EU rules, and others could only be applied with the cooperation of Turkish Cypriots and Rauf Denktash.
