  • [01] CYPRIOT FM STATEMENT

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs Marcos Kyprianou has made clear that Cyprus will not consent to the opening of negotiating chapters in Turkey`s EU accession course, if Turkey does not make progress with regard to the obligations it assumed towards the Republic of Cyprus.

    Kyprianou`s remarks came in response to a statement by Turkey`s State Minister and Chief Negotiator with the EU Egemen Bagis, as quoted by Anadolu News Agency, that efforts will intensify for the opening of the chapters of Education and Culture, and Energy as part of Turkey`s EU bid.

    Invited by CNA to comment on Bagis` statements, Kyprianou recalled Cyprus` ``clear and official position`` announced during the EU December 2009 General Affairs and External Relations Council regarding six negotiating chapters, in which Energy, and Education and Culture are included.

    ``According to our view, the Republic of Cyprus will not agree to progress in these chapters if Turkey does not meet its obligations with regard to Cyprus and especially the obligations mentioned in the EU declaration of 2005.``
