  • [01] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - TURKEY - PROTOCOL

    Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos has said that the intention of the Turkish side to send to the Turkish Grand National Assembly the issue of the protocol extending its customs union to the ten new EU member states will be the first positive step for the fulfillment of the obligations Turkey has towards the EU.

    Invited to say if there is a strategy followed by Athens and Nicosia, Papadopoulos replied affirmatively.

    As regards a story by Greek newspaper Eleftherotypia saying that the Greek government is working on proposals so as to push forward efforts for a Cyprus settlement and give an answer to European and US pressure to lift the so called ``isolation`` of the Turkish Cypriot community, Papadopoulos said that when this was published there was a representative of him in Athens in the framework of this weekly planning we are making with Greece.

    And this is the third visit to plan the strategy and policy, he added.

    He said he was very astonished to hear about a Greek plan, while his representative was in Athens and he himself was fully informed about what his representative had discussed and there was not such a thing.

    Replying to another question he noted that his proposal regarding Famagusta (for the return of Famagusta to its legal owners and the opening of the port of the Turkish occupied area) is on the table since the two regulations of the EU (financial aid for Turkish Cypriots and direct trade with Turkish Cypriots) have been submitted.

    We have proposed in detail and in writing this plan a good while ago, so these aspects that we are discussing are not new, he added.

    [02] CYPRIOT FM GERMANY - WORKING VISIT
