    [01] Peres has reportedly stated that they see positively the development of relations with the TRNC

    Turkish daily Milliyet newspaper (13.11.07) under the title Gul could not convince Peres for Iran, reports on the meeting between the Israeli President, Shimon Peres, and his Turkish counterpart, Abdullah Gul. Speaking during the meeting Mr. Gul stated, inter alia, that Turkey does not want mass destruction weapons in the area. On his part, Mr Peres said: We do not see the nuclear program of Iran as peaceful. We think different with the esteemed President, but we see that there is support from Iran to the terror that is directed to countries of the region.

    The paper reports also that Mr Gul told Mr Peres, that he expects from Israel to open a commercial representative office in the occupied areas of Cyprus in order to help on the lifting of the economic isolation of the TRNC. Moreover, Gul said: Ferryboat trip services between Haifa and Famagusta harbours can be organised. On his part, Peres stated that they see positively the development of relations with the TRNC.

    On the same issue, Turkish daily Todays Zaman newspaper (13.11.07) reports the following:

    Israeli President Shimon Peres lauded Turkey's role in efforts for peace in the Middle East yesterday, likening Turkey to "an eagle," and announced support for Turkish participation at a US-sponsored conference on Middle East peace planned for later this month.

    Speaking at a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart, Abdullah Gul, Peres explained his eagle metaphor by saying one of the two wings of this eagle is trying to constantly move forward, while the other is constantly trying to balance politics.

    Turkish participation in the upcoming Middle East peace conference will bring spirit to the conference, said Peres, underlining the importance attached by Israel to probable contributions by Turkey to the Middle East peace process, which is at a critical crossroad. The United States is expected to host an international peace meeting in Annapolis, Maryland, later this month aimed at reviving the Middle East peace process that broke down seven years ago.

    Israel has decided to make Annapolis a success -- to bring an end to the conflict, to finally make peace between the Palestinians and ourselves, he said, pledging Israel's determination to work for a tangible result at the upcoming conference and readiness to make peace with the Palestinians.

    It takes time to make peace ... but I believe we can make peace now with the Palestinians, Peres said.

    The upcoming conference in Annapolis occupied a considerable part of bilateral talks between the two leaders, with Peres clearly voicing eagerness for Turkey's participation in the conference as he praised Turkey's regional role in the Middle East. Ankara believes that --for as much as both Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas assume the Annapolis talks to be a starting point-- talks should be comprehensive and broad-based.

    Gul underlined Ankara's stance by saying that Turkey expected the Annapolis talks to yield "concrete and tangible results" and emphasized that Syria should also be invited to participate.

    As a country that is a party to the problem, it is important that Syria participate, Gul said, adding that Syrian President Bashar Assad told him in Ankara several weeks ago that Damascus was interested in renewing negotiations with Israel and that it believed in lasting peace.

    In response, Peres welcomed the participation of all moderate countries, saying the voice of peace will be stronger and louder with increased participation. Yet he also accused Syria of not taking steps toward peace.

    Syria has belittled the talks and Syrian Ambassador to the United States Imad Moustapha called them a waste and a photo opportunity last week. No invitations have yet been issued for the Annapolis conference, but US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Sunday it was likely Syria would be invited. Assad has said that Damascus will stay away from Annapolis unless the Israeli-Arab conflict at large is discussed, including the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

    While cautioning against high expectations for the meeting, Peres nonetheless said it could serve as a starting point and that Turkey's participation would also be useful.

    We start with a high degree of trust. We start in a good atmosphere, he said.

    Turkey, a NATO member and Israel's closest ally in the Islamic world, has in the past played the role of mediator between the Jewish state and its Muslim neighbours.

    Subtitle: Divergence of opinions

    Despite strongly worded compliments by the Israeli president and a statement of joint will to make Annapolis a success, the two presidents did not hide their divergence of opinions regarding their approaches to certain issues concerning the region.

    While Peres told Gul that Israel could not accept a nuclear Iran, Gul said for his part that while Turkey was against the development of weapons of mass destruction, it did believe countries had the right to develop alternative sources of energy.

    In response, Peres told Gul that Israel did not accept this line of thinking and that Iran had a large amount of oil and natural gas and hence does not need an alternative source of energy.

    Iran does not need nuclear energy, said Peres. I know the president has a different assessment, but we feel threatened.

    When the Turkish president also warned Israel against taking any unilateral steps vis-à-vis the Palestinians ahead of the parley and that Israel needed to stick to a two-state solution, Peres responded that he wasn't aware of any unilateral steps Israel planned to take and that Hamas was the only entity taking unilateral steps.

    Subtitle: Turkey trying to help free Israeli soldiers

    Another major issue discussed between Gul and Peres was two Israeli soldiers being held by Lebanese Hezbullah guerrillas since last year. Gul told Peres that Turkey would work for the release of the soldiers.

    We hope a good result can be achieved (on the Israeli soldiers). Turkey will make every effort to achieve that result, Gul said.

    The two soldiers were seized by Hezbullah in July 2006, triggering a war in which around 1,200 people in Lebanon, mostly civilians, and more than 150 Israelis, mostly soldiers, died. The United Nations is mediating talks to secure a prisoner swap between Hezbullah and Israel. Hezbullah wants to exchange the soldiers for Lebanese and Arab prisoners in Israeli jails. As Turkey's foreign minister at the time, Gul raised the case of the missing soldiers in his talks with Syria at Israel's request.

    Subtitle: Abbas arrives in Ankara

    Also on Monday Palestinian President Abbas arrived in Ankara to participate in the seventh meeting of the Ankara Forum, to be hosted by Gul at the presidential palace. Abbas and Peres will together participate in the forum, which held its first meeting in April 2005 in Ankara at the initiative of then Foreign Minister Gul and which has since been named the Ankara Forum for Economic Cooperation, holding its most recent meeting in September in East Jerusalem.

    During talks in Ankara, the Turkish government is expecting to hear about a decision from Abbas' leadership on how much land can be allocated for setting up a large industrial park in the West Bank that could provide jobs for thousands of Palestinians. The forum and the project --one of the seven projects which the envoy for the Middle East Quartet, Tony Blair, took note of due to their probable contributions to the peace process-- is being conducted by the Turkish Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges (TOBB) and the Israeli Industrialists' Union and the Federation of Palestinian Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture (FPCCIA).

    [02] The chairman of the Turkish Cypriot Real Estate Agents Union says that 11,000 houses were built last year in the occupied areas of Cyprus

    Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (13.11.07) reports that the chairman of the Turkish Cypriot Real Estate Agents Union, Hasan Sungur has stated that a great constructions boom was experienced in the occupied areas of Cyprus after the Annan Plan and that during the last year about 11,000 houses were built. He said that the demand for separate houses has been reduced and that the tendency for preferring apartments increased.

    Mr Sungur said that in a research they carried out in the area between occupied Keryneia and Akanthou in the period 2004 - October 2007 they found out that 4,700 new houses were built, that the 2,812 of them are still under construction, that 1,263 of them are dwelled and that 625 are empty in spite of the fact that their construction is completed.

    Mr Sungur noted that the percentage of the villas in Keryneia area decreased to 54% today from 73.5 % before the Annan Plan and that the percentage of the apartments increased from 19.7 % to 34 %. Mr Sungur noted that the most preferred village from the above-mentioned area is Agios Epiktitos and the less preferred village is Trapeza. He pointed out that the number of the firms of the subcontractors and the contractors in the building sector was 65 in 2003 and increased to 927 in 2007.

    He noted that these numbers show the growth in the sector. He said that the unbalanced growth could result to chaos. Pointing out that 30.2 % of the economy of the breakaway regime is powered by this sector, Mr Sungur said: Constructions have been turned into a main sector in our country.

    [03] The breakaway regime participates in World Travel Market in London

    Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (13.11.07) reports that the TRNC is being represented with a 203-square meter stand in the World Travel Market which began yesterday in London. The Turkish Cypriot Hoteliers Union, the Turkish Cypriot Travel Agents Union and many tourist agents and tour operators from occupied Cyprus participate in the fair.

    In statements to Kibris, Erdogan Sanlidag, self-styled minister of economy and tourism said that their main target and policy is to overcome the decrease in the number of tourist from Britain which is observed during the past few years and to increase this number to the highest level.

    Pointing out that Britain and Germany are among their target-markets, Mr Sanlidag said: The tourist and travel agents, with whom I met today, gave positive messages on the issue of the tourist incentives law that we have passed from the Council of Ministers. I believe that as a ministry we have done a positive movement. We will hold a meeting with the travel agents who send tourists to the TRNC and Turkey. I will meet with Turkeys Minister of tourism as well. We want to benefit from Turkeys experience. We are also considering of an educational plan. We do not think that this will happen with the incentives law that we have passed from the Council of Ministers. As a second step we need to turn advertisement into a matter of primary importance. .

    Mr Sanlidag said also that the number of the beds increases every day with the new hotels which are built, but the number of tourists does not increase.

    Furthermore, illegal Bayrak television (12.11.07) broadcast the following on the issue:

    North Cyprus is being represented at the World Tourism Market which opened its gates in London today.

    The Minister of Economy and Tourism Erdogan Sanlidag is also in the British capital for the Fair which will keep its doors open until Thursday.

    On the first day of the fair, the North Cyprus stand attracted great interest from visitors.

    3 professional associations, 10 tour operators and 2 airlines are promoting the North Cyprus tourism at the World Tourism Market in London.

    Throughout the fair, brochures promoting the North Cyprus tourism will be distributed and North Cyprus tourism advertisements will be published by the Travel Weekly magazine.

    The Minister of Economy and Tourism Erdogan Sanlidag who is currently in London for the fair, had inspections at the World Tourism Market.

    Mr Sanlidag said that the special events organized within the framework of the fair increased the interest shown to the North Cyprus stand.

    The Minister also added that Britain is the major target market and that a new program was prepared to attract more tourists from Britain in coming years.

    The World Tourism Market is a four-day travel industry event and brings together worldwide buyers and sellers from every sector of the industry.

    A record breaking 46,945 travel industry professionals participated at WTM 2006 representing 202 countries and regions.

    Meanwhile, a total of 46 posters promoting North Cyprus are being displayed at the Tottenham Court Road Tube Station as part of the efforts aiming to attract more tourists to the North.

    [04] Kaya Artemis Hotels coordinator says that they plan to bring 10-15 thousand German tourists to the occupied areas as of April 2008

    Turkish Cypriot daily Halkin Sesi newspaper (13.11.07) reports that Ismail Cetin, coordinator of Kaya Artemis Hotel in occupied Cyprus, has said that as of April they plan to bring 10-15 thousand German tourists with charter flights. Kaya Artemis Hotel hosted journalists during the weekend and briefed them on the problems of the hotel and the tourism sector.

    Mr Cetin noted that they have an agreement with the illegal Turkish Cypriot airlines on the issue and that their aim is to bring minimum 10-15 thousand tourists from Germany with charter flights as of April 2008. He argued that the Greek Cypriots prevent them from taking to the occupied areas big groups of tourists and from bringing tourists from Larnaka Airport.

    The soldiers were captured by the PKK during an ambush in Dagl1ca, Hakkari province, on Oct. 23, and they were released 14 days later after US officials, northern Iraqi administration officials and three deputies from Turkey's Democratic Society Party (DTP) negotiated with the PKK in northern Iraq.

    The study contains such details as provinces, districts, neighbourhoods, islets and lots where these immovable are located. Balikli Greek Hospital Foundation owns 327 immovable, which is the highest number among the minority foundations.

    Haskuy Turkish Karaim Jewish Foundation owns seven immovable, five of which are located in Beyoglu and two in Eminonu. The registry kept by the General Directorate of Foundations does not list any real estate owned by the Heybeliada Greek Clerical School Foundation, the Buyukada Surp Astvazazin Armenian Church Foundation or the Kad1koy Surp Levon Armenian Church Foundation.

    While it is possible to find immovables owned by minority foundations in any district of Istanbul, they are concentrated in Beyoglu, ^ili, Eminonu, Eyüp, Uskudar, and Besikta as well as the islands of Buyukada, Heybeliada and Burgazada. Of 57 immovable owned by Bulgarian foundation Ekzarhligi, 19 are located in Kirklareli, 18 in Edirne and the remainder in Fatih and Sisli.

    Many of the immovable that belong to the minority foundations consist of entire buildings. These immovable include places of worship, schools, hospitals, marketplaces, waterside mansions, apartments, detached residences, arable fields, gardens, cemeteries, shops and plots of land; also, most of them are operated by the relevant foundations whereas some of them are rented. Some of the immovable that belong to minority foundations have had lawsuits filed against them by the Treasury, the General Directorate of Foundations or individuals. Some of these lawsuits are currently underway. In particular, the Balikli Greek Hospital Foundation is currently dealing with several lawsuits launched in connection with its immovable.
