[01] Turkey called upon to comply with the Loizidou case ruling

An Interim Resolution on the payment of just satisfaction in the case of Loizidou against Turkey was adopted today by the Council of Europe at the 757th meeting of the Ministers' Deputies. The Interim Resolution [] concerning the violation of the applicant's right to property she owns in the northern part of Cyprus "calls upon the authorities of the member States to take such action as they deem appropriate to this end".

"If a country rejects to execute a judgment, this could lead to political tensions" the Council of Europe Secretary General Mr Walter Schwimmer has said, and referred to the interim resolution as "a step to put pressure on a member country to comply with the judgment."

[02] Cyprus's EU course despises Turkish threats

"Turkey's threats have no place in Europe," Foreign Minister Mr Ioannis Kasoulides said upon arrival to Cyprus from Brussels where he participated in a symposium on the future of Europe. "Our resolve to join the EU, with or without a settlement is not going to be shaken and my understanding is that Europe's determination on this matter is not going to be shaken either, " he added.

Invited to comment on recent remarks by his Turkish counterpart Mr Ismail Cem that Cyprus' entry into the EU before a solution would create serious problems to all concerned, Mr Kasoulides replied: "We are not going to follow in Turkey's steps and play along with Ankara the threat game".

Mr Kasoulides also had a working lunch with US State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus Mr Thomas Weston, during which Mr Weston briefed him on US efforts to restart the stalled UN-led peace talks. "These efforts are directed towards the Turkish side," Mr Kasoulides said and added that Mr Weston appeared "somewhat more optimistic than in the past about the prospects for a resumption of the talks". The Turkish Cypriot leader Mr Rauf Denktash had declared these talks dead last November and has since refused to return to the negotiating table, demanding recognition of his self-styled regime in Turkish occupied Cyprus.
