    JANUARY 21, 1997

    Summary of the political and economic news in the Turkish press this morning.

    [01] TURKEY, TRNC CLOSE RANKS

    Meeting in the wake of an escalating missiles crisis on Cyprus, the President of Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) signed a joint declaration Monday defining a new era in bilateral ties. President Suleyman Demirel of Turkey defined the joint declaration as "more than a joint defense doctrine." Demirel said Turkey had not given up hope for a peaceful solution to the Cyprus problem but that the Greek Cypriots were looking for other solutions.

    TRNC President Rauf Denktas at the signing ceremony said that by this declaration Turkish Cypriots had two guarantees. "The first, whoever touches Cyprus is in effect touching Turkey and the second is that the economic agreement which we signed recently between Turkey and the TRNC will be carefully followed up," Denktas said.

    The joint statement stressed that the continued intense military build-up by the Greek Cypriot side, the "joint defense doctrine" between Greece and southern Cyprus and the construction of Greek air and naval bases in the Greek Cypriot administered parts of the island have created a situation that threatens peace and stability not only in Cyprus but in the entire eastern Mediterranean./Milliyet/Sabah/Cumhuriyet/

    [02] GREECE AIMS TO HINDER TURKEY-EU RELATIONS

    Turkey on Monday accused Greece of opposing international efforts aimed at confidence building between feuding ethnic communities in Cyprus so as not to open the door for Turkey's integration with Europe. Athens is well aware that if the Cyprus question was solved, Athens would have no other way of blocking Turkey's relations with the European Union, Foreign Ministry spokesman Omer Akbel said on Monday at his weekly press conference. He indicated that Greece was refraining from taking constructive and peaceful steps to solve the issue of the divided island of Cyprus because it wanted to hinder relations between Turkey and the EU./All papers/

    [03] UN FLAG NO LONGER TO FLY OVER ATRUSH CAMP

    The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is today taking down its flag from Atrush, a refugee camp in the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) area of northern Iraq, according to United Nations officials in Ankara. Metin Corabatir, the external affairs officer of the UNHCR office in Ankara said that the refugees would be moved to Mukubli and Balkoz, 30 kms from the Turkish border. Temporary assistance was to be given to these people on an individual basis, he said. /Sabah/

    [04] CILLER: PRIVATIZATION IS FOR THE GOOD OF TURKEY

    Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Tansu Ciller said privatization id for the good of Turkey, claiming that "privatization was change itself." Speaking at the live-broadcast privatization tender for Turkey's state-owned Etibank mining banking giant Ciller noted that the private sector should be the defender of, as well as participate in, the privatization drive of the coalition government. Ciller said the "privatization mobilization" of Turkey had only just started and would be implemented without any deviation from the plans and the program prepared by the government./All papers/

    [05] CHP LEADER ATTENDS SOCIALIST INTERNATIONAL MEETING

GUNSIAD Chairman Mucahit Can said: "We aim to establish small amd medium-scale enterprises in southeastern Anatolia. Our plans regarding these aims are ready". /Cumhuriyet/

    [08] TURKEY INVITES JAPANESE BUSINESSMEN

    With a view to expanding the flow of foreign investment into Turkey, Turkish business sectors have invited the owners of small and medium sized Japanese businesses to Turkey.

    Turkish trade sectors are on the attack, and are seeking new avenues leading to more foreign investment. The Japanese market remains one of the most attractive. Turkish business leaders said yesterday that a new round of talks was "just the beginning" and that they looked forward to new openings with the Central Asian countries and even some of the Pacific Rim countries. /Hurriyet/
