    British MP says Turkey must withdraw troops from Cyprus

    Nicosia, Jul 19 (CNA) -- North London Conservative MP for Chipping Barnet, Theresa Villiers, has said that ''if Turkey wants to be in the EU then it must remedy its human rights record and it must withdraw its troops from Cyprus.''

    Speaking at the 16 July annual rally in London's Trafalgar Square, organised by the National Federation of Cypriots in Great Britain to commemorate the 31st anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, Villiers said that last October, Turkey promised to extend its customs agreement with the EU to cover all new member states, noting that ''it is vitally important that they do this because it will mean that they recognise the government of Cyprus.''

    ''They still haven't done this. Unless they do so before 3 October, Tony Blair must block the opening of accession negotiations,'' she added, according to a press release issued by her office.
