  • [01] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - TURKISH PM`S STATEMENTS

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said that ``our positions are clear`` that the responsibilities of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan are towards the European Union.

    President Papadopoulos was commenting on remarks by Erdogan that no one should expect Turkey to open its ports to Cypriot ships until the ``isolation`` of the Turkish Cypriots was lifted.

    Cyprus, which joined the EU in May 2004, has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    Turkey, a country aspiring to become an EU member state, does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus and refuses to implement the EU-Turkey Customs Union Protocol, by opening its ports and airports to Cyprus.

    [02] SPOKESMAN - TURKEY - EU

    The Cypriot government will not accept any formula which will exclude the return of Varosha and also link the regulation for direct trade with the Turkish occupied north and Turkeys EU accession course, Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis has said.

    He added that the safest way to avoid a crisis is for Ankara to implement its obligations.

    [03] UN - BROWN - TURKEY

    UN Deputy Secretary General Mark Malloch Brown said in Brussels that the United Nations wish to address the issue of the use of the ports in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus.

    He pointed out that Europe has some very special needs related to the Turkish EU accession talks which touch on this issue, adding that he gave assurances to Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn that ``we really were going to be following up on that and see what we can help on that specific European issue.``
