    Replying to questions, Chrysostomides said that ''this is an issue which must be examined by the EU and I am sure that it will express a clear disappointment for these manoeuvrings.''

    Nicosia, Jul 27 (CNA) -- Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said there is a new beginning in relations between Britain and Cyprus and described yesterday's meetings in London between British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos on one hand, and British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Iacovou on the other hand, as very satisfying.

    Nicosia, Jul 27 (CNA) - Turkey is obliged to sign the Protocol expanding the Ankara Agreement to cover the European Union's ten new member states, including the Republic of Cyprus, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides has said, stressing that any other action by Turkey apart from the signing should not contradict and retract the substance and the significance of the Protocol.

    In comments to CNA about statements made by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan after a meeting with his British counterpart and EU council President Tony Blair in London, Chrysostomides noted that what is essential right now is the clear signing of the Protocol ''with whatever that entails''.
