  • [01] Cyprus government holds Turks responsible for death of Greek Cypriot enclaved man
  • [02] French and Turkish Foreign Ministers discuss Cyprus

    [01] P>

    The Foreign Minister, Mr. Ioannis Kasoulides, has expressed deep shock over the murder of Stelios Harpas, a 69-year-old Greek Cypriot enclaved in the Turkish-occupied area whose charred body was found in his car near Rizokarpasso village on Tuesday.

    Mr. Kasoulides, who was speaking after the meeting of the Council of Ministers today, said the Cyprus government will convey internationally that it holds the occupation authorities responsible for the physical integrity and security of the enclaved in the occupied area.

    "If the security of any citizen is taken for a fact, the security of the enclaved should be considered as a double obligation and double responsibility", he said.

    Mr. Kasoulides said he would convey this message to UNFICYP and demand that this matter be investigated and cleared up. He also said UNFICYP would be asked to ensure that justice is done.

    [02] P>

    The Cyprus problem was among the issues discussed at a meeting between the Foreign Ministers of France and Turkey on Tuesday.

    Turkish Foreign Minister Ismail Cem told the press afterwards that he had explained to his French counterpart, Mr Hubert Vedrine, Turkey's position regarding the decision of the G8 on which the subsequent UN resolutions on Cyprus were based.
