    Cyprus government says new crossing points cannot open immediately

    Nicosia, Apr 21 (CNA)--The Cyprus Government confirmed today that the list of crossing points where persons and goods may cross the ceasefire line on the island has been extended, noting however that the two new crossing points cannot open immediately due to technical difficulties.

    Yesterday, the European Commission had announced that the list of crossing points where persons and goods may cross the ceasefire line on the island has been extended and it is now up to the two communities to agree on their actual opening. The two crossing points are Zodia, in the Nicosia District, and Ledra Street in the town of Nicosia.

    Cyprus satisfied with EU common position on Turkey

    Nicosia, Apr 21 (CNA)-- Cypriot Foreign Minister George Iacovou expressed the satisfaction of the Cyprus government over the EU common position, which the EU Presidency will present to Ankara during the EU-Turkey Association Council on Tuesday, April 26.

    Iacovou said that the common position agreed during today's meeting of the EU Permanent Representatives Committee (COREPER), includes provisions for the normalization of Turkey's bilateral relations with the EU member-states, including the Republic of Cyprus, for the termination of the blockade that Turkey imposes on vessels under Cypriot flag, and for a Cyprus settlement in line with the values on which the EU has been constructed.

    ''My belief is that we have achieved a very satisfying text and what is important is that today's decision is an EU common position,'' Iacovou added.

    The common position was reached today after long deliberations between the Permanent Representatives of EU member-states on a draft text submitted by Luxembourg, who holds the EU rotating Presidency.
