  • [02] CYPRUS - KOSOVO


    Britain has reassured that ``our policy on Cyprus has not changed`` and that its ``longstanding and explicit policy of non recognition`` of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus ``remains.``

    British Minister for Europe Jim Murphy, in a letter to President of the National Federation of Cypriots in the UK Peter Droussiotis, notes that ``nothing in the Strategic Partnership document,`` signed recently by the UK and Turkey, ``should be interpreted as an attempt to change the status of northern Cyprus or promote partition.``

    He adds that ``we remain committed to supporting the UN good offices mission in Cyprus and the implementation of the 8 July agreement to achieve a just, comprehensive and durable solution.``

    [02] CYPRUS - KOSOVO

    Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said on Tuesday that the European Union acknowledges Nicosia`s stance on the issue of Kosovo and there is no possibility of the Republic of Cyprus being isolated from its other EU partners.

    Commenting on remarks that Cyprus would be isolated regarding the recognition of Kosovo, Palmas said ``Cyprus is expressing a position of principle, which it believes provides a guarantee in the event of similar situations arising in the future regarding the unilateral recognition of a state.``

    ``I would say that the stance and the approach we have adopted is acknowledged regarding the specific issue and there is no possibility of isolation,`` he added.
