    Greek Ambassador: No dramatic change in occupied north

    by Katerina Nicolaou

    Nicosia, Apr 27 (CNA) -- The transfer of power in the Turkish Cypriot leadership, following a recent poll in occupied Cyprus, cannot be seen as a ''dramatic change'', believes Christos Panagopoulos, Greek Ambassador in Nicosia, pointing out that thousands of Turkish troops and settlers still remain on the island.

    In an interview with CNA, shortly before the end of his posting here, Panagopoulos stressed that the cornerstone of a Cyprus solution lies in Ankara, adding that he can only hope that the newly elected ''president'' Mehmet Ali Talat will prove to be the springboard for real change in the intransigent stance of the Turkish side.

    He noted that the European perspective, with Cyprus a member of the European Union and Turkey aspiring to become a member, can still act as a catalyst for a just and viable Cyprus settlement, only this time round, he points out, talks must take place without arbitration, suffocating deadlines or resort to referenda without a prior agreement between the island's two communities.
