    US Congresswoman: we must focus our attention to Ankara for Cyprus solution

    Nicosia, Nov 27 (CNA) -- Republican member of US House of Representatives Ileana Ros Lehitnen stresses in an article that the window of opportunity for reaching a Cyprus solution is still open in view of the island's EU accession and urges Washington to persuade Turkey to abandon its aggressive stance.

    In her article entitled ''Cyprus ripe for reunification?'' published Wednesday in "Washington Times" the Congresswoman says that while every administration in the US, both Democratic and Republican, has pursued a Cyprus solution since 1974, ''only recently has America's collective political will to solve the problem reached critical mass.''

    Referring to Turkey's intransigence she notes it is ''bewildering'', explaining that ''here is a member of NATO illegally occupying what will soon be a member of the EU - the very family of nations Turkey urgently needs and wants to join - and continuing to deny the opportunity for both Greek and Turkish Cypriots to reunite their country and face a common future as a European nation''.

    While many point to the intransigence of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash as the reason for the ongoing failure at the negotiating table, she adds, ''it is difficult to accept that this man alone has been able to thwart pressure from the US, the UN and the EU without the resolute backing of Turkey's hard-liners in Ankara, especially the military''.

    Underlining that ''it is to Ankara, that we must focus our attention now'', the Congresswoman, member of the US House of Representatives' International Relations Committee, notes that in May 2004, Cyprus will become a permanent full EU member.

    "There are factors, like the US, that could contribute more decisively to solving the Cyprus issue, but they do nothing," Kaklamanis noted, adding that in Cyprus and Greece there is no one who does not want a solution to the Cyprus issue.
