  • [01] Spokesman replies to Denktash

    [01] P>

    The Government Spokesman, Mr Michalis Papapetrou, commenting on an allegation made by Turkish Cypriot leader Mr Rauf Denktash to the effect that the Attorney-General of the Republic Mr Alecos Markides yesterday said that "bizonality in Cyprus is apartheid", today made the following statement:

    "I categorically deny this allegation made by Mr Denktash. Mr Markides, speaking at a press conference he gave yesterday concerning the Report of the European Commission of Human Rights on Cyprus' fourth application against Turkey, made no mention of apartheid or bizonality, These inventions by Mr Denktash are obviously aimed at disorienting world opinion and giving him an excuse to avoid pressure exercised on him by various sides as a result of his great intransigence.

    I would also like to stress that the UN Secretary General, following the proposal of the Group of 8 and UN Security Council resolution 1250, is called upon to invite the two sides to talks.

    If, by placing unacceptable conditions, Mr Denktash refuses to attend these talks, then he is violating the UN resolutions and the Secretary-General should hold him totally responsible. In any case, I would like to stress that the Secretary-General's reply to Mr Denktash that he is acting within the framework of the UN resolutions satisfies the Government and confirms its position that talks without conditions mean talks held within the framework of the UN resolutions."
