    [01] Turks claim UN Secretary-General's report "pro-Greek"

    According to KIBRIS (13.6.96), the so-called New York representative of the pseudo-state Osman Ertug, has described as "pro-Greek Cypriot" the Cyprus report, submitted to the UN Security Council by the UN Secretary-General, proposing the extension of the UN peace-keeping force mandate in Cyprus. Ertug alleged that the report included pro-Greek Cypriot views and ignored the "injustices" done to the Turkish Cypriot side. He stated that the report did not mention the joint defense doctrine between the Greek Cypriot side and Greece. He said: "The last border incident has been unnecessarily exaggerated in line with the Greek Cypriot position". Ertug claimed that all the efforts made by the pseudo-state regarding humanitarian issues were ignored while what the Greek Cypriots did was applauded in the report. He said that it was noteworthy that this situation emerged only after the Cyprus Government and Greece agreed to pay half of the expenses of the UN peace-keeping force in Cyprus.

    [02] New propaganda book by Gazioglu

    According to KIBRIS (13.6.96), a new book by Ahmet C. Gazioglu "Turks in the Enosis Encirclement" was put into circulation. The 505-page book is published in Istanbul by Cyprus Research and Publishing Centre. (MY)

    [03] Retired non-commissioned officers: "Do you push the people to revolt?"

    According to KIBRIS (13.6.96) the Executive Committee of the so-called Retired Non-commissioned Officers Association in a written statement criticized the recent increase in the price of milk and dairy products. The statement reads: "Now, with the uncouth price increase you are depriving our children of a basic food. You are either unaware of what you are doing or so ambitious to hold on to power that you are completely blind". Pointing out that in several countries milk which is a basic food is distributed free of change, the Association added: "We have given up the idea of milk supply free of charge. However, the price increase is too big. Do you push the people to revolt? Be careful. If one sows the wind he will reap the whirlwind". The association further urged the pseudo-regime to curb the flow of illegal workers from Turkey. (MY)

    [04] Turkish State Minister visits pseudo-state

    According to KIBRIS (13.6.96), Turkish State Minister Ali Talip Ozdemir is to arrive in the occupied area tomorrow to inaugurate Hakkari handicraft and woven malting-kilim exhibition. He will be accompanied by Hakkari governor, Hakkari Mayor, Hakkari Police Chief, Hakkari Attorney, Hakkari criminal court judge and other officials. (MY)

    [05] Occupation regime forbids Turkish Cypriot guests to attend Queen's birthday reception

    According to YENIDUZEN (13.6.96), the Turkish Cypriot regime did not allow around 100 Turkish Cypriot guests to attend the reception given in the free areas by the British High Commission on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth's birthday. Yeniduzen says that two weeks ago the British High Commission applied for permission to 100 Turkish Cypriot guests. The Turkish Cypriot authorities announced that it was not appropriate for guests to cross into the free areas. (MY)
