    [02] Spokesman - Turkish Cypriot missing persons

    Nicosia, Jun 28 (CNA) -- The government is reconsidering its declared intention to open up graves believed to contain remains of Turkish Cypriot missing persons, after public statements by Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Dentkash that he would not cooperate in this effort.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today that the government made the announcement about its intention to open up these graves "in the hope that the Turkish Cypriot side will respond to it."

    [03] Spokesman - Turkish Foreign Minister

    Nicosia, Jun 28 (CNA) -- The European Union is pressing upon Turkey the need to align its legislation and policies with European norms and regulations, the government believes.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou expressed regret that Turkish Foreign Minister Ismail Cem insists on his long-standing views that Cyprus' accession to the EU prior to a political settlement would lead to inevitable conflict and create serious problems for Brussels, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.

    [04] Spokesman - Report on demography

    Nicosia, Jun 28 (CNA) -- The number of illegal Turkish settlers in Cyprus' occupied areas far outweighs the number of indigenous Turkish Cypriots and this proves the real intentions of Turkey's designs for the island, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today.

    The spokesman was commenting on a draft report by Finnish deputy Jaakko Lakso, rapporteur of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on the demographic situation in the occupied areas, which said that there are some 120,000 Turkish settlers and about 85,000 Turkish Cypriots and that around 55.000 Turkish Cypriots have already left the island.
