    [01] INTERNATIONAL BOSNIA CONFERENCE CONVENES IN LONDON

    Forty-four foreign ministers have gathered in London to expedite the reconstruction of Bosnia and to establish stability in the federation. In a speech during the conference Turkish Foreign Minister Tansu Ciller said that Turkey, in addition to its humanitarian assistance, had pledged $80 million at the last Donors Conference in Brussels and that the $20 million committed for 1996 would be paid in the form of a grant.

    [02] TURKEY RECEIVES PERMISSION TO SHIP SPARE PARTS TO IRAQ

    A United Nations (UN) resolution restricted oil sales is expected to come into force next week, and technical studies concerning the Kirkuk-Yumurtalik oil pipeline are near completion. Turkey has received UN permission to ship spare parts and equipment to Iraq for repair of the Kirkuk-Yumurtalik pipeline, UN diplomats attending a meeting of the Sanctions Committee on Iraq said on 3 December. The spare parts and equipment are to be used to ensure that the pipeline will be operable to carry Iraqi oil during the first phase of the UN-Iraq oil-for-food sale. Within the framework of UN Security Council Resolution No:986, the implementation, which enables Iraq to sell oil worth $2 billion over a period of six months, will be underway this month. /Milliyet/

    [05] EVACUATION OF IRAQI AID WORKERS

    The United States on Wednesday began evacuating a new group of thousands of Iraqi employees of US-linked aid organizations from Kurdish-held northern Iraq, Turkish border officials said. Around 250 Iraqis had crossed through the Harbur border gate into southeast Turkey and were being temporarily housed in a gendarmerie post. A Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said 4,500 Iraqis would be brought to Turkey in the latest evacuation and then flown to the US island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean. "The operation is expected to be completed within two weeks," Spokesman Omer Akbel told a news briefing in Ankara. /Sabah/

    [06] GREECE SAYS FIRST STEP MUST COME FROM TURKEY

    Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis said after his meeting with President Suleyman Demirel in Lisbon during the Organization for Security and Cooperation Europe (OSCE) summit that the first step in solving bilateral disputes had to come from Turkey. Simitis told Greek reporters that he had exchanged views with President Demirel but concluded that no progress had been made. /Cumhuriyet/

    [07] NATO TO MEDIATE BETWEEN TURKEY AND GREECE

    The Western European Union (WEU) Parliamentary Assembly is to seek NATO mediation for the Cyprus and Turkish-Greek disputes pending the approval of a report which sees neither the European Union nor the WEU qualified to act as mediators because the two countries had differing status in those organizations. "NATO could, for example, give more active consideration than it has to date, to the ways in which it could mediate with a view to settling various aspects of the disputes between Turkey and Greece, possibly under the aegis of a contact group similar to the one provided for in the Dayton accords," a report adopted by the Assembly said. /Cumhuriyet/

    [08] CYPRUS QUESTION MUST BE SOLVED

    Ireland's Cyprus Special Representative Kestner Heaslip noted that no EU membership discussions for Cyprus could be initiated unless a solution to the Cyprus dispute was found. Heaslip suggested that Northern Cypriot President Rauf Denktas and the leader of the Greek Cypriot community meet in March for discussions, adding that if both leaders reach an accord by the end of 1997, in 1998 Cyprus membership in the EU could come to the agenda for discussions. /Hurriyet/
