 DENKTASH ON CONTINUING HUMANITARIAN AID TO TURKEYAnatolia Agency (13:43 hours 23.8.99) reports that Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash said on Monday that the earthquake disaster in Turkey deeply shocked the Turkish Cypriots, stressing that help and aid should continue.
The earthquake in Turkey and the pseudostate's aid were discussed at Monday's weekly regular meeting of Rauf Denktash, Dervis Eroglu and Mustafa Akinci.
Denktash said a new 1 billion Turkish Liras of donation was allocated from the so-called presidential budget for the purchase of baby food.
Denktash announced that he will make donations on behalf of every couple which will be married, instead of sending flowers to the wedding ceremonies for which he receives invitation.
Noting that he will continue this at least for six months, Denktash said, "I think this will please the couples who send invitation letters. I will also send certificates to these couples to mention their donations. Flowers will be forgotten a day after but contribution to the efforts to build a new house will please people in their whole life".
Pointing out that they are grieved as they couldn't help more, Denktash said, "I wish we had more opportunities. We are doing our best under these conditions and we have to continue to do so. Our citizens living abroad should make contributions. This is a calamity. The wound is much more bigger than the one reflected by the televisions".
 PSEUDO-MINISTER GOES TO TURKEYAurupa (24.8.99) reports that the so-called economy and finance minister, Mehmet Bayram, yesterday went to Izmir at the head of a delegation.
Bayram went to Izmir for the 68th International Fair of Izmir, which will open on the 26th of August, as the guest of the Turkish government. He'll also have contacts with Turkish state officials.
