    Rehn calls on parties in Cyprus to show compromise (1)

    Nicosia, May 13 (CNA) -- he current status quo in Cyprus does not correspond to European norms, stated here Friday EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn, and called on the people to show willingness to compromise.

    In a speech at the Cyprus Iunternational Conference Centre during a gathering to mark Europe Day, Rehn said Cyprus accession to the European Union has been part of a unique historical process. Our wish has been to enable a united Cyprus to be part of the enlargement process from the very beginning. Therefore, no efforts should be spared to reach a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    He said one year after accession I encourage you all to show willingness to compromise. Take the example of Robert Schuman and do the impossible reach for the others hand. Only then we shall be able to create a new united Cyprus.

    Rehn said time is working against the interest of all Cypriots noting that to end the stalemate as regards the trade and aid package to Turkish Cypriots, the Commission is ready to consider a compromise allowing the adoption of the two proposals. I hope all parties concerned will show the same spirit of compromise, he added.

    Cyprus government urges Turkish side to stop exploitation of G/C properties

    Nicosia, May 13 (CNA) ---- The Turkish Cypriot side must stop the exploitation of Greek Cypriot properties in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus since this causes a number of problems in various aspects, Cyprus Acting Government Spokesman Marios Karoyian stressed today.

    ''The message that has been conveyed to the European officials who visit Cyprus is that the responsibility of the illegal use of Greek Cypriot properties lies entirely with the Turkish Cypriot side'', he said.

    He furthermore noted that ''these actions violate the basic human rights, the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights and they (the Turkish side) try to use illegally properties that do not belong to them''.
