  • [01] SPOKESMAN - TURKEY - EU - VAROSHA

    Cyprus Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis said here Thursday that Nicosia promotes its proposal for the implementation of the EU direct trade regulation with the Turkish Cypriots along with the return of the fenced-off area of the occupied town of Varosha to its legal inhabitants and the joint administration of the city`s port, stressing that without the return of Varosha the direct trade regulation cannot be implemented.

    Replying to questions about a possible development on the direct trade regulation, Pashiardis said that the government promotes its proposal, because it deems that ``the acceptance of this proposal by Turkey offers Turkey a way out, providing at the same time an optimistic prospect for the Cyprus problem.``

    Turkey is refusing to open its ports and airports to ships bearing the Cypriot flag and to Cypriot aircrafts, asserting that the EU did not meet its ``obligations`` for lifting the so-called ``isolation`` of the Turkish Cypriots.

    Pashiardis noted that the proposal`s implementation is up to Turkey and not the EU, underlying that the proposal should be implemented as a whole and not partially.

    ``For us it is inconceivable for the regulation to be confined only to (the opening of) Varoshia`s port and not to the return of the city to its legal inhabitants,`` Pashiardis said, noting that ``without the return of the town the regulation cannot move forward.``
