    EU ready to play proactive role for Cyprus settlement, Commissioner Rehn says

    Nicosia, May 12 (CNA) --- The Cyprus problem must be solved as soon as possible and the European Union is ready to play a proactive role in the efforts to reach a settlement, European Union Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn and Minister Delegate for Foreign Affairs and Immigration of Luxembourg, which is now holding the EU rotating presidency, Nicolas Schmit, stressed here today.

    Rehn and Schmit gave a joint conference here for Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot journalists and noted that a compromise settlement should be found regarding the Commission's proposal for the adoption of a financial aid regulation for Turkish Cypriots and a direct trade regulation between Turkish Cypriots and the EU member states.

    During their talks here they also discussed the illegal exploitation of Greek Cypriot properties in the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus and Rehn underlined that this issue proves even more the immediate need for a comprehensive settlement.

    ''Our primary objective is and remains the comprehensive settlement and the reunification of Cyprus and there is now a fresh momentum. The Commission is ready to play a proactive role in this process and we support the resumption of serious talks on the reunification of Cyprus under the auspices of the UN'', Rehn said.
