    Cypriot Spokesman: Britain acting as if Turkey is an EU state

    Nicosia, Sep 8 (CNA) Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides has said today the British Presidency of the EU is pursuing a document, which will correspond to the expectations of the Presidency and perhaps of Turkey, without taking into account the objections of other member states, including the Republic of Cyprus.

    Referring to the failure of COREPER yesterday in Brussels to agree on a counterstatement to Turkeys declaration that it does not recognize the Republic of Cyprus, the Spokesman replied that the Cypriot government will continue efforts for a clear and unconditional counterstatement noting that it is the EUs collective responsibility to defend the principles and foundations on which its functioning is based on.

    Straw: Turkeys accession process should be allowed to go ahead

    London, Sep 8 (CNA) British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said today that Turkeys accession process should be allowed to go ahead and at the same time, the EU should help the parties in Cyprus to re-invigorate the UN-sponsored talks for a settlement.

    In a speech at the Institute of Public Policy Research today in the British capital, Straw also said that he would have preferred it if Turkey had not felt it necessary to issue its declaration stating that its signature of the Association Agreement Protocol did not amount to recognition of the Republic of Cyprus.

    He also described as too terrible to contemplate not allowing Turkey in the EU, noting that its accession in the Union will demonstrate that Western and Islamic cultures can thrive together as partners in the modern world.
