    Cox says crossings tantamount to people's revolution

    Brussels, Apr 29 (CNA) -- The ''extraordinary events'' taking place over the past few days in Cyprus, with the Turkish occupation regime easing the restrictions on the freedom of movement of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots to and from the occupied areas, is ''tantamount to a 'people's revolution''', President of the European Parliament Pat Cox has said.

    Cox was speaking at the meeting of the President of the European Parliament and the Presidents of Parliaments of the Accession and candidate states in Brussels today, during which the latest developments regarding the crossings in Cyprus were discussed.

    ''I take a great sense of inspiration from the people's leadership that we are currently witnessing in Cyprus'', he said.

    Cox added that ''the extraordinary events taking place, around the more than 100,000 crossings, are tantamount to a 'people's revolution'''.
