    Government dismisses Turkey's flexibility as political device

    Nicosia, May 9 (CNA) - Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides said today that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was totally in line with the positions and the policy of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash and that efforts to make the new Turkish government seem more flexible on the Cyprus problem were just a political device.

    Speaking after a ministerial meeting at the Presidential Palace, Chrisostomides said Erdogan held an illegal visit to the Turkish occupied areas today as a ''conqueror'' and that the ''new measures'' announced by the occupation regime do not promote a settlement but instead perpetuate the division of the island.

    The Spokesman said Erdogan's statements during his one-day illegal visit to the island ''confirm the ascertainment of the government of the Republic of Cyprus that Erdogan fully sides with the positions and the policy of Denktash''.

    ''Plausible efforts were made to give the impression, internationally and in Cyprus, that Erdogan had a seemingly different and more flexible policy on the Cyprus problem than that of Denktash or the political and military establishment in Turkey. Once again, it is proved that this is just a political device'', Chrisostomides said.

    He added that ''no hopes should be placed on expecting a change in the intransigent position of the Turkish government any time soon regarding the Cyprus problem, so as to make possible the achieving of a just and viable solution of the Cyprus problem''.
