    According to Reuters, in an interview with Turkish daily «Radikal», Papadopoulos said UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's peace plan for Cyprus could still work if Turkey and Denktash reconsidered and stressed that he wants a solution to the Cyprus problem before Cyprus joins the EU.

    'We are a small country. We do not have the power to push the EU about. We want Turkey to be an EU member, provided of course that it behaves like a European country,'' Papadopoulos was quoted as saying.

    According to Reuters in his interview Papadopoulos accused Ankara of wanting to 'keep its finger on Cyprus and said Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan seemed to share Denktash's thinking on the issue.
