  • [02] EU - MEAT


    The opening of a crossing point, in the capital, to and from the northern Turkish occupied areas depends on the Turkish side, President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos stressed here today.

    He also stressed that the government will not allow any territory to be lost in return for opening a checkpoint at Ledra street, one of the capitals most commercial streets.

    Since 2005 we have proposed the opening of as many checkpoints as possible, specifically eight. We favour the opening of checkpoints at Ledra and at Limnitis, on the west, he said during a visit to the National Guard observation post at the end of Ledra street.

    Responding to questions, he said as a gesture of good will the government, while maintaining its positions on the delimitation of the buffer zone, that separates the northern Turkish occupied areas from the southern government controlled part of the country, will accept temporarily a UN map to facilitate the opening of the crossing point at Ledra street.

    This, he pointed out, until talks on the matter determine the actual status of the area, with the responsibility resting on the shoulders of the UN.

    We will not accept the demand the Turks raise that they should have control of the area. I do not believe there is anyone who would accept to relinquish territory for the opening of a crossing point, Papadopoulos stressed.

    Asked if there are any consultations on the issue, the President replied the ball is in Turkeys court and explained that the Turkish occupation forces and not the Turkish Cypriots have the main say on this matter.

    [02] EU - MEAT

    The European Union Standing Veterinary Committee decided to lift the restriction measures on exports of bovine meat from Cyprus.

    The restrictions were imposed after foot and mouth disease was detected in Cyprus.

    The Cyprus government had asked that exports of bovine meat resume. The meat exported will come from areas outside the 10- kilometre surveillance zone and under strict sanitary conditions.

    The same Committee had lifted on December 3 the prohibition of dispatching pig-meat from Cyprus from the zones beyond the 10km zone, around the infected holding where foot and mouth disease was detected.
