    [02] GREEK FM CYPRUS TURKEY

    Greek Foreign Ministry Spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras has stressed that Turkey cannot become a full EU member state unless the Cyprus problem is solved.

    If we are to have a relation with Turkey that would lead its full EU membership, then we must talk clearly, he said Thursday in statements to the press, adding that the most important issue in Turkeys EU course is the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    This problem must be resolved, Delavekouras pointed out, saying that Turkey cannot become a member of the EU without a prior solution of the Cyprus problem and the termination of its occupation in Cyprus.

    Reiterating Greeces proposal for a meeting to be convened in which the EU Turkey relations would be reassessed, he said in that meeting EU member states and Turkey should renew their commitment to Turkeys full EU membership, which of course provides for the fulfillment of its obligations.
