  • [01] SPOKESMAN - TURKEY - EU REPORT

    ิhe government has described the European Commission`s progress report on Turkey as significant, since it recognises that a UN-brokered agreement in July last year, between the islands two communities, will prepare the ground for negotiations aiming at a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    Replying to questions after a Council of Ministers meeting, Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas said the fact that the Commission expresses anticipation regarding Turkey`s support towards the resumption of talks, on the basis of the July 8 agreement, leads to the conclusion that this clear obligation of Turkey still remains a requirement.

    He added that ``it is once again confirmed that the July agreement is the only agreement before us to help create conditions for progress in the Cyprus problem`` and that the EU, along with the UN, shares this opinion. Palmas said it was important that the report criticises the Turkish military role in the country`s politics and in issues such as the Cyprus problem. He noted that the government would be studying the report and would send its opinion to the EU.

    [02] FOREIGN MINISTER - LEBANON

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs Erato Kozakou Markoullis will pay a one-day working visit to Lebanon on Thursday, during which she will discuss, inter alia, the Cyprus problem and the latest developments in the Middle East. During her stay, Markoullis will be received by Prime Minister Fuad Siniora and President of the Parliament Nabih Berri. She will also meet her Lebanese counterpart Fawzi Salloukh and other politicians.

    Among the issues to be discussed are the latest developments in Lebanon and the Middle East, the Cyprus problem and the promotion of bilateral relations.

    The visit to Lebanon is Markoullis` first stop in her tour of the Middle East. She is scheduled to visit Egypt on November 10 and Syria on November 11.
