    [01] Spokesman - Turkish Cypriots

    Nicosia, Mar 7 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government has dismissed as "unfounded" allegations by the Turkish Cypriot leader that it does not know how to handle the issue arising from the influx of persons, living in northern Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus, to the southern government-controlled part of the island.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today the government intends to take such action that would help Nicosia, taking advantage of the arrival of Turkish Cypriots in the areas of the Republic where it exercises jurisdiction.
