    [01] Denktash claims visa countermeasures not to harm Turks

    According to illegal Bayrak radio (16:30 hours, 3.2.98), Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash has claimed that the measures to be adopted by the pseudostate in reaction to the British visa requirement will be arranged in a way that will not be harmful to Turkish Cypriots living in Britain. Following his meeting with the US Ambassador to Nicosia last Tuesday Denktash made a statement to illegal BRT (Bayrak Radio and Television) and illegal TAK in connection with the visa issue.

    Pointing out that the measures to be adopted in reaction to Britain's visa requirement will not result in losses for the "TRNC", Denktash explained that it is possible that incoming tourists will not be charged visa fees. Denktash also explained that the measures will not entail any difficulties for "TRNC citizens" living in Britain upon entry.

    [02] Akinci describes visa on Britain as `Self-Imposed Embargo'

    According to illegal Bayrak radio (16:30 hours, 3.2.98) Communal Liberation Party (TKP) leader Mustafa Akinci has charged that the move to introduce a visa requirement on British citizens in reaction to the visa imposed on Tukrish Cypriots is tantamount to a self-imposed embargo.

    In a written statement on the subject, Akinci remarked that ideas that are raised without due deliberation will either not be implemented, or they will carry the risk of causing damage when implemented. Akinci remarked that in opposing the British visa requirement, one must be careful and cool in assessing the conditions that lead to immigration and requests for asylum. He stressed the importance of adopting those measures that will eliminate these conditions and of expanding employment opportunities. Akinci added that no only should they refrain from imposing a visa on British citizens, they should actually adopt measures that will facilitate arrivals to the occupied area from Britain as well as from other part of the world.
