    Ads in London for Turkish occupied areas withdrawn

    Nicosia, Mar 24 (CNA) -- Adverts in Britain for holidays in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus that were due to appear on London buses and the Tube have been withdrawn after protests from Chairman of the London Assembly Conservatives Brian Coleman, who is also the Assembly member for Barnet and Camden.

    Spanish FM: Turkey should sign and implement Customs Union Protocol

    Nicosia, Mar 24 (CNA) -- In international relations, when a country signs an agreement it is obliged to implement it, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos stressed today, referring to Turkey's obligation to sign the Protocol extending its Customs Union with all new member states, including the Republic of Cyprus, before the 3rd of October.

    ''In international relations, you sign something to implement it. There is the political will of political leaders. If you sign an agreement in international diplomatic life, you sign to implement it'', Moratinos said here, after talks with his Cypriot counterpart George Iacovou.

    Iacovou noted that in international practice you have to ratify an agreement that you sign.

    ''There is also the principle of good faith. The idea that you can sign but not ratify so that you can implement is totally outside any international practice'', he said.

    The Spanish Foreign Minister was also received this morning by President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos. He also met with the President of the House of Representatives Demetris Christofias.
