    Cypriot Spokesman says Turkey maintains inflexible policy

    Nicosia, Aug 3 (CNA) - Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said yesterday's statements by Turkish President Ahmet Nezdet Sezer and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat prove yet again the nationalistic and inflexible policy followed by Turkey.

    Invited to comment on statements made yesterday by Commission Spokesman Amadeu Altafaj that the recognition of Cyprus follows a ''parallel procedure'' with Turkey's accession negotiations, however ''in another framework, that of the UN,'' Chrysostomides said a serious misunderstanding has occurred.
