    [10] Greek FM - Cyprus peace talks

    Athens, Jun 15 (CNA) - Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou has expressed the hope that Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash will go to next month's UN-led peace talks with a view for substantive negotiations and not with demands for recognition of his self-styled state.

    "This is where we will see whether the will is there. Obviously, I do not necessarily expect that in a round of talks, all the problems will be settled but if this process sets off in a substantive manner, it will signal an important indication that the will to move towards a common Europe exists," Papandreou said in an interview to a local radio station.
