  • [01] GOVERNMENT EU PROTOCOL 10

    The government of the Republic of Cyprus has said that Protocol 10 of the Accession Treaty of Cyprus to the European Union is clear and that Cyprus has entered the EU as a whole, whereas the acquis is suspended in the northern Turkish occupied part of the island.

    Invited to comment on a statement on Wednesday by UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer that the Republic of Cyprus is a member of the EU but the north is not part of the EU according to Protocol 10 of the Accession Agreement, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou said we do not want to comment statements by UN officials.

    However he said what I can say is that Protocol 10, with which Cyprus has entered the EU, is clear. Protocol 10 provides that the Republic of Cyprus enters as a whole the EU and that the acquis is suspended in the occupied area due to the anomaly in the area.

    Protocol No 10 annexed to the Accession Treaty envisages the suspension of the Acquis in the areas of the country which are not under the effective control of the Government of Cyprus.``

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded the island.

    The Republic of Cyprus joined the EU on May 1, 2004

    [02] GREEK PRIME MINISTER CYPRUS

    Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis has stressed that Turkeys path towards the EU and the full normalisation of its relations with Greece depend on the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking before the Greek Parliament, Karamanlis described 2009 as an important year for efforts to reach a Cyprus solution and he called on all who are sincerely interested in solving the Cyprus problem, to see its ``real dimension and exert pressure on Turkey.

    Turkeys relations with the EU and our country are directly affected by developments in Cyprus. They are hampered by walls of military occupation, the only dividing walls on European soil, they are hampered by the walls which isolate Turkish Cypriots themselves, he stressed.

    He announced his forthcoming visit to Cyprus, likely to take place in April.
