    Talat discusses EU regulations with Barroso

    by Nicos Bellos

    Brussels, Feb 14 (CNA) - The two regulations for the Turkish Cypriots that are currently before the General Affairs Council, that is the financial aid and the direct trade regulations, the crossing over the ceasefire line in Cyprus and the Cyprus problem were discussed today during a meeting in Brussels between President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso and so-called prime minister of the puppet regime in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus Mehmet Ali Talat.

    The Commission's spokeswoman said the two proposed regulations to financially strengthen the Turkish Cypriots and for direct trade with the occupied areas were linked and expressed hope that the General Affairs Council would find a way to break the deadlock.

    Furthermore, the spokeswoman said the Commission supported any initiative to increase the crossing points between the two sides of the divide on the island.

    On the Cyprus problem, she expressed hope that a new initiative would be undertaken, under UN auspices, noting that the Commission was willing to offer its good offices, whenever requested.
