    Cypriot President flies to Ireland for EU enlargement celebrations

    Larnaca, May 1 (CNA) --- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos departed today for Ireland, where he will participate at the official ceremony, organized by the Irish EU presidency to welcome the Union's new ten member states.

    Speaking to the press prior to his departure and replying to questions President Papadopoulos said the determination of the date for the opening of Turkey's accession negotiations will take place on the same criteria, which applied for all the other countries.

    He noted that although the settlement of the Cyprus problem is not a precondition for Turkey's EU accession, ''it is still an element that will be considered, of course now in less grade than before''.

    Invited to say whether next week's meetings of the so called T/C prime minister Mehmet Ali Talat with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and US Secretary of State Colin Powell will take place in the framework of the efforts by the Turkish Cypriot side to upgrade the status of the Turkish puppet regime in the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus, Papadopoulos said ''some countries want either to punish us, or to demonstrate that there must be consequences because the people made use of their legitimate right, as they should, to reject this particular Annan plan''.
