    EPP calls on Turkey to normalise relations with Cyprus

    Nicosia, Dec 16 (CNA) The European People's Party (EPP) has called on Turkey to sign the protocol on the adaptation of the Ankara Agreement and to normalise its relations with Cyprus.

    The position is included in a declaration issued at the end of the EPP summit in Brussels today that took place prior to the start of the European Council this evening. Democratic Rally leader Nicos Anastasiades participated in the meeting.

    The EPP declaration said it takes it as a matter of course that a candidate country maintains a standard of relations with all member states which do not harm this process.

    It is therefore expected that Turkey will sign the protocol regarding the adaptation of the Ankara Agreement, taking account of the accession of the ten member states that joined the Union on 1 May 2004, it added.
