    Cyprus FM: Turkish military chief's comments on Cyprus are unacceptable

    Nicosia, Apr 21 (CNA) -- Cypriot Foreign Minister George Iacovou described comments made by Turkish armed forces chief Hilmi Ozkok on Cyprus as unacceptable.

    Speaking after a meeting with Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Panayiotis Skandalakis, Iacovou said what is important is that Cyprus' partners in the European Union also consider such statements as unacceptable.

    General Hilmi Ozkok said that Turkey would not withdraw its troops that occupy since 1974 the northern part of Cyprus.

    Cyprus FM criticizes Talat's policy on missing persons issue

    Nicosia, Apr 21 (CNA)--Mehmet Ali Talat, new leader of the Turkish Cypriot community, seeks with various excuses to obstruct the effective investigation of the fate of missing persons, Cyprus Foreign Minister George Iacovou has said.

    Talat has sent a third letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, asking for equal Turkish and Greek Cypriot representation at the Institute of Genetics and Neurology, which carries out work in a variety of spheres, not just with regard to the issue of missing persons.

    Iacovou recalled that the Institute had ''offered posts to Turkish Cypriots,'' adding however that ''former Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash forced them to leave.''

    Cyprus House commemorates Armenian genocide

    Nicosia, Apr 21 (CNA) -- The Cyprus House of Representatives commemorated today the Armenian genocide of 1915. The House observed a minute's silence in memory of the victims of this atrocity.

    Speaking before the plenary, House President Demetris Christofias described the Armenian genocide of 1915 as one of the most heinous crimes ever committed in the history of mankind against helpless people.

    He reiterated Cypriot people's solidarity towards the people of Armenia, adding that despite the fact the Armenian genocide is acknowledged by almost every country in the world, Turkey stubbornly denies to recognize this crime.
