    Papandreou says messages from Turkish side not encouraging

    Copenhagen, Dec 12 (CNA) The messages from the Turkish side are not those expected at the moment, Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou said, adding that there is a tendency on the Turkish side of retracting, which does not allow for optimism for a Cyprus settlement now.

    Speaking to Cypriot reporters in Copenhagen after a meeting between Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides and Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis, Papandreou said the solution of the Cyprus problem was one of the three aims of Greece.

    The messages from the other side are not the expected ones at this moment, the Greek Minister said, adding that we see a tendency of retracting on the Turkish side and this definitely does not make us very optimistic about a solution, at least at this moment.
