    [03] Greek Ambassador - EU - Cyprus - Turkey

    Nicosia, Oct 18 (CNA) -- Cyprus should not be held hostage by Turkey as far as its accession to the European Union is concerned, Greek Ambassador to Cyprus Christos Panagopoulos said here today, pointing out that allowing Ankara to have a say on Cyprus' accession, prior to a political settlement, would create a "dangerous precedent" for other candidate countries.

    The Ambassador did not rule out the possibility of seeing EU enlargement blocked by the Greek parliament, if Cyprus is victimized, and stressed that Cyprus accession to the EU would offer security and stability to all Cypriots and would facilitate a solution.
