  • [01] REHN - REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS - TURKEY

    The European Union recognizes only the Republic of Cyprus as the sole legal government in Cyprus, subject to international law, and as such it acknowledges the Republics sovereign right to enter into bilateral agreements, EU Enlargement Commissioner, Olli Rehn, has said.

    Responding to questions by member of the European Parliament for Synaspismos Dimitrios Papadimoulis, Rehn stresses the need for the immediate resumption of Cyprus talks under the UN auspices aiming to reach a comprehensive settlement of the islands long standing political problem.

    He also notes that Turkey after its accession to the EU will have to adopt and implement the Convention on the Law of the Sea.

    [02] CoE - COMMITTEE OF MINISTERS - INTERIM RESOLUTION - TURKEY

    The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has adopted a second interim resolution concerning the execution of a judgment, in May 2001, by the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Cyprus against Turkey.

    The Court found a number of violations of the European Convention on Human Rights by Turkey in the northern part of Cyprus since the Turkish military invasion in 1974.

    As regards the issue of missing persons, the Committee emphasizes again the urgency of this issue, welcomes the progress achieved in the work of the Committee of Missing Persons (CMP) and in particular through the exhumation and identification programme, and encourages the continuation of the efforts so far deployed.

    However it calls on Turkey to rapidly provide information on additional measures required to ensure the effective investigation called for by the Courts judgment.

    As regards education, censorship in the occupied areas and the absence of appropriate facilities, the Committee welcomes the continued functioning of the secondary school in Rizokarpaso since 2004 and in particular the fact that since September 2005 full secondary education to Greek Cypriot children is ensured.
