    1620:CYPRESS:02 Spokesman - Turkish Cypriot leader - Missing Nicosia, Jun 27 (CNA) -- Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou today expressed regret over Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash's negative response to a government call to relatives of Turkish Cypriot missing persons to give blood to facilitate the process of identifying remains of Turkish Cypriots, to be unearthed.

    "I regret that on matters which we should all consider humanitarian, Denktash once more blocks the way forward and essentially acts against the interests of the relatives of Turkish Cypriot missing persons," the spokesman said, invited to comment on the response from the Turkish Cypriot side to the government appeal.

    [03] Spokesman - European Court - Resolution

    Nicosia, Jun 27 (CNA) -- The government attaches great significance to a call by the Council of Europe (CoE) to its member states to take action with a view to ensure Turkey's compliance with a European Court of Human Rights judgment which found Ankara guilty of human rights violations in Cyprus.

    The government, commenting on Turkey's reaction to the call which is included in a resolution adopted by the Committee of Ministers of the CoE in the case of Titina Loizidou, said Ankara's response reflected its inability to produce convincing arguments to back its positions, which the Court had already rejected.

    [04] Spokesman - EU - Turkey

    Nicosia, Jun 27 (CNA) -- The Cyprus question is an issue which Turkey will encounter in its accession course to join the European Union as a difficult matter which has to be dealt with and the closer Cyprus gets to its EU membership, the more difficulties this will create for Ankara, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou has said.

    He also said that Turkey is now facing tough questioning of its policies on Cyprus from European quarters, something which in the past was done by Greece.

    [05] Foreign Minister - EU - Turkish threats

    Nicosia, Jun 27 (CNA) -- Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has said Turkish threats against Cyprus' membership of the European Union, prior to a political settlement, are not going to dent Europe's resolve to accept Cyprus in its ranks.

    The minister also said he had some optimistic signals from US State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus Thomas Weston, whom he met in Brussels in the past couple of days. CNA/MAN/MM/RM/2001
