    Nicosia, Aug 22 (CNA) -- European Union Commissioner responsible for enlargement Gunter Verheugen has assured Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides that the EU stood firm to its position on Cyprus and that in no way it will encourage Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash for recognition of the illegal regime in the areas of Cyprus occupied by Turkish troops since 1974.

    [04] Greek Minister - Turkey - EU - Cyprus

    Nicosia, Aug 22 (CNA) -- Greece's National Defence Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos has said that Cyprus' bid to join the European Union is a perspective that could indeed contribute to the stability in the eastern Mediterranean region and will pave the way for the accession of the Republic of Cyprus, including its Turkish-occupied part, to the EU.

    Tsochatzopoulos, who was speaking at an international conference on military history in Athens, noted that this perspective could eventually serve as a bridge linking the EU and Turkey, "which unreasonably aspires to join the EU while at the same time it objects the accession of the Cyprus Republic and its northern part (occupied by Turkish troops since 1974) to the EU, thus creating a contradiction, an European citizen could hardly understand."
