  • [01] Turkey under constant observation, Karamanlis stresses

    Turkey's European prospects depend on genuinely embracing reforms that will make it a European country, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis stressed in an interview with the German newspaper "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" published on Thursday.

    "Turkey is under constant observation. We support its European prospects but it must become a European country, and not just on paper," Karamanlis stressed.

    The Greek premier also underlined that the European Union must speak clearly to Turkey, while reiterating that a European Turkey was in everyone's interests.

    He also referred to the referendum for the Annan plan held on Cyprus, pointing out that Greeks and Greek-Cypriots were aware that a solution to the Cyprus issue would contain elements of compromise.

    "At the same time, we must never forget that the Cyprus problem is one of invasion and occupation and that the solution proposed by the United Nations called for the long-term presence of military forces on the island," he added.

    He stressed that Athens worked closely with every Cypriot government, noting that this was a form of "national obligation", and that no side had ever though of imposing its will on the other.

    "The Cypriot people outlined their will with clarity and a great majority," he added.
