  • [01] Gov't: Cyprus' EU accession unaffected by solution prospects

    20/12/2001 12:54:45

    The Greek government emphasised on Wednesday that Ankaras apparent policy reversal of late vis-a-vis a solution to the Cyprus problem stems from the fact that it realised the ?futility of its previous strategy?.

    Government spokesman Christos Protopapas made the statement during his regular press briefing in Athens, and in reply to the latest comments regarding Cyprus by Turkish PM Bulent Ecevit.

    The Turkish premier on Tuesday merely reiterated Ankaras long-standing views on the Cyprus issue, most of whom contravene various UN resolutions and International Law.

    ?Cyprus is in the final stretch towards its (EU) accession, and this was verified at Laeken,? Protopapas said in reference to last weekends European Union summit near Brussels.

    He also emphasised the common position of both Athens and Nicosia, namely, that if negotiations for a solution to the island republics problem lead to ?the unfortunate possibility of failure, then this will not affect Cyprus accession?.
