    Cypriot President: Turkey's obligation to sign protocol ''given and definite''

    Larnaca, Jul 28 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said that Turkey's obligation to sign the Protocol extending its Customs Union with the ten new EU members ''is given and definite'', adding that Ankara must not set rules or conditions.

    Speaking upon his return from London, he said that the ''existence of the Cyprus Republic does not depend on Turkey'', noting that for 31 years ''we live and operate as an independent state without recognition from Turkey''.

    He further noted that many EU member - states have stated that ''either Turkey signs the Protocol or it cannot start accession negotiations''.

    EPP - ED Group: Turkey - EU accession talks require recognition of Cyprus

    Nicosia, Jul 28 (CNA) -- Chairman of the EPP-ED Group in the European Parliament Hans-Gert Poettering has stated that accession negotiations with Turkey require the recognition of Cyprus.

    Accession negotiations with Turkey are impossible as long as the question of the recognition of Cyprus by Turkey is not settled, he said.

    According to an EPP ED Group press release, Poettering was reacting to reports that both the Turkish side as well as the current British EU Council Presidency consider the signing of the so-called Ankara Protocol, about the extension of the Customs Union between Turkey and the EU to the new member states, does not mean the recognition of Cyprus by Turkey.

    According to Poettering the position of Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is a contradiction in itself, signing on the one hand the protocol to the Ankara Agreement that implies the legal and political recognition of Cyprus while on the other hand denying the recognition of Cyprus in a planned declaration. Poettering said it is disconcerting that Council President Blair accepts this interpretation.
