    Ismail Karakuyu and Ali Riza Gonul have been appointed as new cabinet members to replace Yildirim Aktuna and Yalim Erez who both resigned two weeks ago. Karakuyu, now deputy DYP chairman will serve as Health Minister, while Ali Riza Gonul, one of the DYP parliamentary group leaders, has been appointed the new Minister of Industry.

    [03] CILLER: TURKEY HAS A SAY IN WEU

    On her return from a Western European Union (WEU) Council of Ministers meeting, Foreign Minister Tansu Ciller said agreement was reached on Turkey's participation in all stages of operations for which the WEY would use NATO facilities. Ciller said that Turkey's next goal was full membership in the WEU, the designated defence arm of the European Union.

    Ciller said that she had also met with her Greek counterpart Pangalos and added: "We both want to continue with dialogue and we hope that the "committee of wise men" will meet at the end of June, if not sooner." She noted that Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Onur Oymen would visit Greece by the end of this month.

    [04] TURKISH AND GREEK MILITARY MEET IN ATHENS

    Turkish and Greek military officials came together in Athens to discuss steps for improving bilateral relations. Talks will continue until the weekend. Both sides are expected to take in hand confidence-building measures with respect to the Cyprus question and Aegean disagreements. /Cumhuriyet/

    [05] TURKEY BUYS NEW MISSILES

    Turkey is planning to buy Arrow missiles jointly produced by Israel and the US. Defence News magazine, published in the US reported that Turkey was willing to buy anti-ballistic missiles that would serve as a deterrent to regional threats. Israeli officials are lobbying in Washington in favour of the deal. The issue was first discussed during a visit to Tel Aviv by Second Chief of General Staff General Cevik Bir early this month.

    [06] IRAN AND SYRIA AGAINST TURCO-ISRAELI COOPERATION

    El-Wasat weekly magazine published in Saudi Arabia has given first page coverage to Chief of General Staff General Karadayi's recent visit to Israel. The magazine claims that agreements for military cooperation signed between Turkey and Israel have polarized the Middle East, and warns that tensions in the region could rise. Syria and Iran, both alarmed by Turco-Israeli military cooperation, are discussing steps for developing closer ties in reaction to the developments in the region. /Hurriyet/

Special emphasiz has been given to attracting tourists from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries. /Cumhuriyet/
