    Cyprus strongly protests new Turkish air violations

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    In a letter addressed to Annan, dated 17 May 2005, Mavroyiannis stressed that such acts blatantly contravene international law and air traffic regulations and seriously endanger international civil aviation, increase insecurity, maintain a climate of tension in a particularly sensitive region and undermine the efforts made to achieve progress in resolving the Cyprus issue.
