    Hungary supports peaceful reunification of Cyprus

    by Emilia Christofi

    Budapest, Feb 7 (CNA) - Hungary supports the peaceful procedure to reunite Cyprus as well as the common effort of Cyprus and Europe for Turkey to sign the protocol extending its customs union agreement with the EU, thus de facto recognising the Republic of Cyprus, Hungary's Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany said today, after talks with Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos.

    Speaking through an interpreter, Gyurcsany said it would be a long time before a solution was found, by which the Turkish troops would withdraw from the island, but noted that the aim in the near future should be to secure the international legal recognition of the Republic of Cyprus.

    In his statements, President Papadopoulos extended an invitation to Gyurcsany to visit Cyprus, which was accepted.
