  • [01] FOREIGN MINISTER - TURKEY - CYPRUS - EU

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Iacovou has described as bravado that can not be accepted by the European Union statements by the Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan that if so called embargo on the Turkish Cypriots is not lifted, Ankara will make certain moves which he did not specify.

    Speaking at Larnaca airport upon his departure for Strasbourg, to participate in the 116th session of the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers (May 18 19), Iacovou said Erdogan should reconsider his country`s European aspirations and ``ask himself if Turkey is serious when referring to its European course.

    Responding to a question, he said that that the Commissions report for Turkey will not be ready before September so the first discussion for Turkeys evaluation is not expected to take place before October.

    Iacovou noted that the evaluation of does not consist only of issues of Cypriot interest and that Ankara has many obligations towards the 25 EU member states, which directly concern the Cyprus Republic.

    He further noted the obligations that have to do with internal matters of Turkey, such as the protection of the human rights of minorities, underlining that the general impression is that Turkey has not made substantial progress towards Europe.
