    by Athena Arsalidou

    Strasbourg, Feb 22 (CNA) -- Turkey cannot start accession negotiations with the European Union unless it signs the Ankara Agreement regarding the extension of the Customs Union Agreement with the ten new member states, including the Republic of Cyprus, Othmar Karas, Vice President of the European People's Party (EPP) Group at the European Parliament, told CNA today.

    President says time makes solution more difficult

    Larnaca, Feb 22 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said today that the passage of time consolidates certain situations and this renders more difficult the solution to the Cyprus problem and the reunification of the island. He noted however that accepting a UN-proposed solution plan, as it is, would have a worse outcome.

    Speaking at Larnaca Airport before departing for Brussels to participate in a meeting of EU heads of state and government with US President George Bush, President Papadopoulos said the only recognised state on the island is the Republic of Cyprus, adding that Sunday's so-called parliamentary elections in the Turkish occupied areas could not be considered ''elections for a state entity and state authorities.''

    Larnaca, Feb 22 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said today that Turkish Cypriot efforts to connect a European Union financial regulation with one governing direct trade with the Turkish occupied areas of the Republic proved that these attempts aim at ''purely political gains'' and not the lifting the so-called isolation of the Turkish Cypriots or the securing of financial benefits.
