  • [01] FM satisfied with compromise solution on Turkish accession negotiations chapter

    Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis expressed satisfaction in Luxembourg over the compromise solution reached by the European Union's foreign ministers on Monday concerning the opening of the first chapter of accession negotiations with Turkey. Bakoyannis said that consensus was ultimately achieved with the agreement, while issues raised by the Republic of Cyprus were safeguarded at the same time. According to the foreign minister, this is a positive development in extremely complex and difficult negotiating during which, as she added, Greece backed the justified concerns of Cyprus and strived to achieve consensus.

    Bakoyannis further said that the parallel stressing of the need for the fulfilment of commitments Turkey has undertaken as a candidate country towards the EU and the Republic of Cyprus has been secured with the temporary closure of this first chapter.

    The foreign minister also pointed out that the text agreed on places particular emphasis on the implementation of the Customs Union Protocol and the outcome confirms the correctness of the strategic option determined and implemented by Greece with firmness, wisdom and determination.

    Lastly, Bakoyannis said that developments were also positive regarding the content of the paragraph on Turkey in the text of conclusions for the upcoming European Council that is expected to be endorsed by EU heads of state and government in Brussels on June 16.
