    Bratislava, Nov 29 (CNA) -- A warm traditional Slovak welcome awaited Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos at the start of his official visit to Bratislava here today, as Slovak President Ivan Gasparovic and his entourage stood at the Presidential Palace with pomp and ceremony to play host to the leader of a European Union partner.

    The bitterly cold temperatures did not dampen the warm greetings exchanged between the two leaders and their delegations nor the traditional Slovak custom of welcome by bread and salt, which symbolises the Slovak hospitality.

    Slovak President: Inconceivable for Ankara not to recognize the Cyprus Republic

    by Maria Myles

    Bratislava, Nov 29 (CNA)-- Sloval President Ivan Gasparovic has urged Turkey to respond to European Union calls with regard to its obligations towards the Union, adding that it is inconceivable for Ankara not to recognize the Republic of Cyprus.

    Speaking after bilateral talks with Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos, he also said that his government would not recognize under any circumstances the creation of a Turkish Cypriot state in northern Turkish-occupied Cyprus and he advocated a political settlement on the basis of international law and UN resolutions.

    In his remarks at the joint press conference, Papadopoulos said that he had outlined his positions on the issues under discussion and repeated his firm stance that Nicosia has no objections to the start of accession negotiations between Turkey and the EU, provided that Ankara conforms with the obligations it has towards the Union and Cyprus as well, as a member state.

    Cyprus has right to veto Turkey's EU course, notes Spokesman

    Nicosia, Nov 29 (CNA) - The Republic of Cyprus has the right to veto Turkey's accession path but this will be determined after a complete evaluation of the results of all European visits, as well as the contents of the conclusions and conditions, which will prevail until 17 December, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today.

    He added that Cyprus does not wish to exercise veto or prevent Turkey's European course as long as Turkey acts in a European manner, adding that efforts continue and in a coordinated manner to achieve the best possible result by 17 December when the European Council will decide on Turkey's European bid.

    [10] Cyprus' main interlocutor is Turkey, stresses Cyprus Spokesman

    1750:CYPPRESS:10

    Cyprus' main interlocutor is Turkey, stresses Cyprus Spokesman

    Nicosia, Nov 29 (CNA) Cyprus' main interlocutor is surely Turkey, said today Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides, commenting on statements made by leader of the Republican Turkish Party in the Turkish occupied north, Mehmet Ali Talat.

    Invited to comment on Talat's remark that the Greek Cypriot side wants to negotiate directly with Turkey, disregarding the illegal regime in the occupied north, Chrysostomides replied that the ''Republic's main interlocutor is surely Turkey''.

    The Cypriot spokesman said the European Court of Human Rights has described the self-styled Turkish Cypriot regime ''a local subordinate administration to Turkey'' which is not recognized by anyone. Does Mr. Talat expect us to recognize it? Surely Turkey has the upper hand in the illegal creation in the occupied area of Cyprus'', he said.
