  • [01] PAPADOPOULOS - TURKEY - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said on Saturday that the Republic of Cyprus was interested in a change of policy on behalf of Turkey on the Cyprus problem, noting that one should first await the results of the elections for a new Turkish President before reaching conclusions.

    Speaking on return from an official visit to Slovenia, President Papadopoulos said "we are interested in a change of Turkey`s policy regarding the Cyprus problem and nothing more."

    Asked if there were any prospects for such a shift in Ankara`s stance, President Papadopoulos said one should first wait to see who will be elected President of Turkey.

    "We still do not know who was elected to be able to draw conclusions," he pointed out.

    Replying to questions, President Papadopoulos said various countries interested in a Cyprus settlement were calling on the Turkish side and especially Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat to proceed to talks for the implementation of the July 8 agreement, without preconditions.

    Commenting on the selling of Greek Cypriot properties in the Turkish occupied areas, President Papadopoulos said "the government is doing everything possible to report the fact and to secure the interests of the owners."

    [02] PAPADOPOULOS - BRITISH BASES

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said on Saturday that the government was discussing with Britain the issue of developing properties in the areas west of Limassol, noting that many problems were arising regarding the conditions of this exploitation.

    Speaking at Larnaca Airport on return from an official visit to Slovenia and commenting on press reports that London had sent a draft plan to Nicosia regarding the construction development of the area west of Limassol, mainly Akrotiri, excluding the British Bases, President Papadopoulos said this issue was being discussed with the British for some time now.

    "There are many aspects. It is not just a matter of developing properties. Many other issues arise regarding the conditions of this exploitation, which regime, tax or other, it will come under, and other problems," he pointed out, adding that it was not the right time to go into details.
