    [02] BARROSO CYPRUS

    President of the European Commission Joze Manuel Barosso expressed hope that 2008 would give the parties in Cyprus an opportunity to address the Cyprus problem ``with a real spirit of compromise,`` noting that the EU would do everything in its power to assist efforts to bring about a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    Barosso, in a brief visit to Cyprus to attend the celebrations to mark the islands` entry to the euro area, was received by Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos.

    Replying to questions after the meeting, Barosso described the Green Line dividing Nicosia, Cyprus` capital, as an ``absurd situation.``

    Barosso congratulated Cyprus on adopting the euro and because it ``lived up its aspirations and its commitments".
