    Turkey has to fulfill its obligations, as the Ankara Protocol describes, and open its ports to Cyprus, Coordinator on the Cyprus problem of the Socialist Group in the European Parliament, Mechtild Rothe, has said.

    In statements, after being received by the President of the Cyprus Republic, Demetris Christofias, at the Presidential Palace here today, Rothe said she was ``delighted to have, again, a meeting with President Christofias and, again to hear that he is committed to a solution of the Cyprus problem.``

    Rothe added ``there are some barriers to be overcome and, after 35 years of division, it is clear that this is the case, but I see there is a strong will to move them and I will go back tomorrow with a lot of optimism. I am very optimistic,`` Rothe said, ``it is possible to find a solution for this wonderful island and it is the first time the two leaders have committed themselves to a solution and that is a very special situation.``

    [02] BRITISH DEFENCE MINISTRY CYPRUS - BASES

    A spokesman for the British Ministry of Defence has stated that ``no personnel changes are being planned`` in relation to the British Bases in Cyprus.

    Replying to questions, the spokesman said ``the decision for the transfer of part of the areas to the Cypriot authorities on the condition of an agreement between the two sides for a solution has no bearing on the number of people employed,`` adding that the area |is mostly arable land anyway.``

    ``The overall employment at the Bases, as in other areas all over the world, is under continuing review but no decision for a reduction has been taken. If and when such a decision is taken, there will be an announcement,`` he concluded.
