    [01] Foreign Minister - Cyprus question - Ambassadors

    Nicosia, Oct 10 (CNA) - The government continues to regard the opening statement by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan at the September peace talks as "unfair treatment" towards the Greek Cypriot side and will make additional efforts to rectify the situation.

    Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said the Greek Cypriot side would have been in a worse situation had it left the negotiating table because of the statement.

    European Parliament Turkey - Cyprus

    Brussels, Oct 10 (CNA) A draft resolution, adopted today by the Committee of Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament, calls on Turkey to withdraw its occupation forces from Cyprus and act in line with UN decisions to find a just, viable and comprehensive settlement.

    The draft resolution deplores the violation of the status quo on the island by the Turkish occupation troops and considers that the European Union cannot open accession negotiations with Turkey until it fulfills the Copenhagen criteria on economic and human rights issues.
