    European Parliament condemns persecution of T/C journalists

    Nicosia, Nov 19 (CNA) -- The European Parliament responding to Union of Cyprus Journalists (UCJ) representations against the persecution by the Turkish Cypriot puppet regime of journalists working at T/C daily ''Afrika'', has condemned these acts as a violation of the right of freedom of expression.

    Weston concerned over impact by Erdogan's visit in occupied Cyprus

    Athens, Nov 19, (CNA)--US State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus Thomas Weston expressed concerns that Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's illegal visit to Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus could be exploited by various parties in the occupied areas to prevent the recommencement of the UN-led talks to reunify the island.

    Speaking after a meeting here Wendesday with Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou in Athens, Weston noted however, ''there's reason to believe that the visit could have a positive impact in terms of moving back to talks".
