    Cyprus regrets progressive erosion of solution basis by Turkey

    Nicosia, Jul 7 (CNA) -- The Republic of Cyprus is determined to continue work towards a solution that will meet the hopes and expectations of both communities, for a common future for all Cypriots, free of outside interference, stressed Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the United Nations Andreas Mavroyiannis in a letter addressed to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.

    The Ambassador's letter dated 29 June, which circulated as a document of the General Assembly, refers to a letter dated 31 May 2005 from the Permanent Representative of Turkey to the United Nations Umit Pamir addressed to the UN SG, containing Ankara's proposals.

    In his letter, upon instructions from the Cyprus Government, Mavroyiannis expresses regret that ''this long-standing agreed basis for a Cyprus settlement is progressively being eroded by Turkey's consistent aim of promoting a secessionist entity in the occupied part of Cyprus, consolidating the faits accomplis and disclaiming all responsibility for the ongoing violations of human rights in Cyprus emanating from the de facto partition of the island''.

    He notes that the assumption presented in the letter, that the rejection of the Annan Plan by the Greek Cypriot community and the accession of the Republic of Cyprus to the European Union have created an entirely new situation, ''is not an honest assessment of the existing reality, but rather is a selective and misleading interpretation, serving a political agenda''.

    Cyprus Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said in Nicosia that the positions expressed in Pamir's letter prove Ankara's insistence on a divisionist policy on Cyprus and on two separate states and governments, a stance which damages the efforts for a comprehensive solution and reunification of the island.
