  • [01] GERMAN CHANCELLOR - TURKEY - ANKARA AGREEMENT

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Friday on Turkey to implement the Additional Protocol to the Ankara Agreement, something which requires the opening of its ports and airports to Cypriot vessels and aircraft.

    Merkel was speaking after a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

    Replying to questions on Turkey, Merkel said that ``we in the EU are in a new process during which some chapters open,`` adding that ``these chapters are subject to negotiations with an open result.``

    ``The remaining problem is the implementation of the Ankara Protocol. So no chapter can close yet,`` she noted.

    [02] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - TALAT - JULY 8 AGREEMENT

    Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said that Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat continues to avoid having a meeting with him, with a view to promote the implementation of the July 8 agreement.

    In statements on the sidelines of an official memorial service in Nicosia, for those who lost their lives during the Turkish invasion, in the summer of 1974, and asked whether a date has been set for a meeting between him and Talat, Papadopoulos recalled Talat`s statement on Thursday that he will respond to Papadopoulos` invitation for a meeting when the time is right.

    Invited to interpret this statement, Papadopoulos said that Talat ``continues his policy to avoid having any meetings until he manages to arrange a meeting that will not fall within the Gambari process.``

    [03] SPOKESMAN - BURNS CYPRUS

    US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns is most welcome to visit Cyprus, Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said Friday, refraining from commenting statements by Burns, who expressed hope that UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon will undertake a renewed effort to achieve a peaceful settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    Burns told CNA that he looks forward to visiting Cyprus, ``hopefully in September.`` He also noted that ``we hope that the Secretary General of the UN will support a renewed effort by the UN to launch negotiations,`` clarifying that he does not mean the July 8 2006 agreement signed between Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    ``Mr Burns is most welcome to visit Cyprus,`` Palmas said, adding that the schedule and the agenda of his visit will be discussed between the US and the Cypriot government.
