    Greek FM says Cyprus solution should comply with UN resolutions

    by Maria Myles

    Constantinople, Feb 13 (CNA) - The solution of the Cyprus question has to be in line not only with UN resolutions but it also has to comply with the European Union acquis communautaire, Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou has said, noting that EU enlargement might be delayed because candidate countries are entering into difficult issues even though at present there are no plans to have enlargement postponed.

    The minister expressed hope that the Cyprus peace talks will continue and will conclude with an agreement, adding that this period of time probably offers the best possible opportunity for a settlement.

    Cyprus FM says Denktash' statements are not helpful

    by Maria Myles

    Constantinople, Feb 13 (CNA) -- Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has said public statements by Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash on the ongoing peace talks are not helpful to the peace process and expressed disappointment with his remark that there is no remedy to the problem.

    The minister denied Turkish press allegations that Cyprus is going to buy Russian attack helicopters, saying he does not know of any helicopters and that reports to that effect are rumours.

    He also said Greek and Turkish Cypriots can live together as they had done in the past if the Turkish occupation army withdraws from Cyprus' northern areas.

    Speaking to the press on the sidelines of the joint forum European Union and the Organisation of Islamic Conference, taking place here, Kasoulides said it is too early to evaluate the talks between President Glafcos Clerides and Denktash and called for patience until later on in the process.

    Invited to assess Denktash's attitude towards the negotiations, he said he does not wish to comment on what Denktash is saying inside the talks but evaluating his public statements the minister had this to say "I think they do not help the climate of the negotiations because he is presenting positions like the creation of two states in Cyprus which does not make much sense."

    Asked to comment on Denktash's remark that there is no remedy to the problem, Kasoulides said "I was very disappointed with that statement because if we want to solve the problem we have to take into consideration the feelings of the people."

    He also said that international legal instruments that exist, such as the European Convention of Human Rights, will have to be taken into account at the negotiating table.

    Replying to a question about harmony between Islam and Christianity in Cyprus where Moslems and Christians do not live together, the minister was quite categorical that Greek and Turkish Cypriots can live together if Turkey withdraws its troops from the island.

    "There is an army preventing us from living together. Remove the army which is dividing us and you will see how we can live together," he said.

    On the duration of the peace talks, he said that the intention is to have negotiations until June without interruption except from the two religious holidays (bayram and easter).

    Asked to comment on Turkish press reports (in Turkish Daily News) that Cyprus is buying Russian attack helicopters at a time of peace talks to find a settlement, he said "I do not know of any helicopters."

    Cyprus is not going to order helicopters from Russia, he said and added "these are rumours."

    On Turkey's role as a meeting point of civilisations, Kasoulides said Turkey can play a role like many others as it is situated between Europe and Asia, adding that Cyprus too can play such a role in the crossroads of three continents and being itself a multicultural country.
