    According to an official statement, the Cypriot government has decided to give 60 thousand pounds (around 120 thousand US dollars) as a contribution to financing the exhumation and identification of the remains of the missing and the establishment and operation of a scientific anthropological laboratory.

    The Greek government has also pledged to give 86 thousand Euro at a first stage to help efforts to ascertain the fate of the missing.

    Violation of Turkeys obligations concerns EU, says Cypriot spokesman

    Nicosia, Sep 26 (CNA) Turkeys obligation to implement the customs union protocol is a collective obligation against the EU and the violation of its obligations does not concern solely Cyprus, said today Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides.

    Invited to comment on statements made by Turkeys Minister of State, responsible for Cyprus affairs, Abdullatif Sener that his country will not open airports or ports to Cyprus, the Spokesman underlined that there is a clear provision in the EU counterstatement to Turkeys declaration that it does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus, that Turkey is obliged to implement its customs union and its non-implementation will affect its accession negotiations.
