    [01] Government - CoE Cyprus Rapporteur - Statements

    Nicosia, Jun 21 (CNA) - The Cyprus Rapporteur at the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly Political Committee Andras Barsony today underlined that only the Republic of Cyprus is recognised and said his visit and overnight stay in the Turkish-occupied areas of the island have been "misinterpreted".

    Barsony, who raised strong reaction from the government and political parties after he stayed overnight in the areas of the island occupied by Turkey since 1974 and addressed the Turkish Cypriot leader as "president", was speaking after a meeting with Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides, which he described as "very successful and fruitful".

    On his part, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said "the whole issue is considered closed even though the situation will be closely monitored" and said President Clerides conveyed his dissatisfaction with certain particular actions of the Hungarian deputy.
