  • [01] SPOKESMAN - FINNISH PROPOSAL

    The Cypriot government will not comment on the Finnish EU Presidency`s proposal until the proposal is finalised, Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis said here Wednesday.

    Replying to questions, Pashiardis said that the government does not comment on reports that Turkey has a positive stance over the Finnish proposals.

    ``We are in constant deliberations with the Finnish Presidency and other EU partners. When a certain proposal is completed then we will take a stand, regardless of what the position of Ankara will be,`` Pashiardis said.

    Invited to comment on reports that that Ankara`s reaction to the Finnish proposals is positive, Pashiardis said that he cannot comment on Turkey`s position since this has not been expressed officially.

    ``So far Ankara has not rejected or accepted the Finnish Presidency`s ideas and therefore we cannot make any comment,`` the Spokesman said.

    He reiterated however, that ``we do not accept any formula or proposal which does not provides for the return of the fenced-off city of Famagusta in a certain date.``

    Replying to question regarding Turkish Cypriot leader`s aid Rasit Pertev`s visit to Finland, Pashiardis said that Pertev, the Turkish Cypriot leader`s aide, cannot speak on behalf of and commit Turkey unless if Turkey has authorised Pertev to comment on her behalf on the matter of the return the fenced-off city of Famagusta and on the matter of the fulfillment of Turkey`s obligations to the EU.

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