  • [03] EU - REGULATION


    Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis said his country attributes great importance to a just and lasting settlement of the Cyprus problem, in line with UN Security Council resolutions.

    Speaking during a luncheon hosted in his honour by Australian Prime Minister John Howard, in Canberra, Karamanlis said ``we give great importance to a just and permanent settlement of the Cyprus problem, a solution that will comport with all relevant UN Security Council resolutions.``

    Earlier on, Karamanlis and Howard had a meeting, during which they mainly discussed the Cyprus problem, Turkey`s EU accession course, Greco-Turkish relations and EU enlargement.


    The Cypriot government has never said that it does not view positively some meetings with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, but its position is that these meetings must have a specific agenda and contents, to create the relevant preconditions for progress, stated here Wednesday Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas.

    He made the statement when invited to comment on remarks by House President and AKEL General Secretary Demetris Christofias on Tuesday evening on state television, who appeared in favour of a meeting between President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos and Talat.

    The position of the government on this specific issue is clear. We have never said that we do not view positively some meetings to take place with Mr. Talat. Simply, what we have said as government, and the President of the Republic too, is that the meetings should take place and have a specific agenda and contents, to create the preconditions and prerequisites for some progress, he added.

    [03] EU - REGULATION

    The German Presidency of the EU informed member states on Tuesday over the difficulties which restrict to a great extent the possibilities to achieve an agreement at the Council of ministers on trade with the areas of Cyprus which the government does not exercise effective control.

    The briefing was held at a level of working groups of the Council of Ministers where the German Presidency was updated on the disagreement of the Cyprus government on the European Commission proposal, and made it evident that it does not favour circumventing Nicosia but would like a consensus to be found on the issue.
