    Nicosia, July 24 (CNA) -- Although the Greek Cypriot side has made many compromises for a mutual accepted settlement of the Cyprus problem, the Turkish side remains intransigent and continues to make unacceptable demands, Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs Ioannis Kasoulides said tonight.

    In a speech he delivered at an event organised in Salonica, Greece, organised by the Cyprus House of Northern Greece, Kasoulides stressed that if the Turkish side continues to be intransigent and to demand "two states" in Cyprus, the prospect for a solution of the Cyprus problem will diminish and the responsibility for this will be on the Turkish side.
