    Vassiliou: Cyprus has a vested interest in democratic Turkey

    Washington, Apr 9 (CNA) -- Cyprus, more than anybody else, has a vested interest in seeing Turkey moving towards Europe, Nicosia's chief negotiator with the European Union George Vasiliou has said, adding that sooner or later Turkey will join the Union.

    Speaking in Washington, Vassiliou said that if the will exists, a political settlement of the protracted Cyprus question can be found by June "under any circumstances."

    He stressed that the EU has made it absolutely clear that it wants one Cyprus with one voice in its ranks and said if the Turkish Cypriot side insists on the creation of two separate states on the island, the Republic will join the Union but the acquis communautaire will apply only to the government-controlled part of the country.
