    Cyprus FM satisfied over outcome of EU Foreign Ministers discussions

    by Nicos Bellos

    Brussels, Dec 13 (CNA) --- Cyprus Foreign Minister George Iacovou expressed today satisfaction over the outcome of today's discussion at the EU General Affairs and External Relations Council, regarding the wording of paragraph 19 in the draft conclusions text of the upcoming European Council.

    During today's discussions among the 25 EU Foreign Ministers five Foreign Ministers - that of France, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Spain and Greece - supported Cyprus' positions regarding the recognition of the Republic of Cyprus by Turkey, as well as the normalization of the two countries' relations, and none of the Foreign Minster expressed opposition to these positions.

    Paragraph 19 of the latest draft summit conclusions reads ''The European Council welcomed Turkey's [decision] to sign the protocol regarding the adaptation of the Ankara Agreement, taking account of the accession of the ten new member states'', including the Republic of Cyprus.

    Cyprus FM asked for a change in the wording of paragraph 19, so that it states that there are legal consequences emerging from the Ankara Agreement Protocol that the European Commission has proposed and that Turkey should implement it and not just sign it.
