    Cypriot government sees change of direction in Turkey's policy

    Nicosia, Jun 7 (CNA) -- Cypriot Acting Government Spokesman Marios Karoyan said the government sees contradictions and a change of direction in Turkey's policy on the Cyprus problem, adding that the Turkish side seems to have taken on a defensive stance.

    Commenting on Turkish demands, as they were set out in a letter to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan by Turkey's Permanent Representative to the UN, Karoyan said that until recently Turkish officials and the Turkish Cypriot side were saying that they are interested in the reunification of Cyprus the soonest possible, noting however that ''after the initiatives our side took, which started some months ago and brought concrete results over the past few weeks, there was a change in direction.''
