  • [01] Diplomatic activity over Cyprus intensifies as Greek FM in Ankara for talks

    04/12/2002 14:16:29

    ANKARA (ANA - A. Kourkoulas) -- Unprecedented diplomatic activity to solve the long-standing Cyprus problem, in light of the recently tabled Annan peace plan and the island republics imminent European Union accession, continued in Ankara on Tuesday, with Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou set to meet practically all of the neighbouring countrys leadership.

    The Greek foreign minister was first received by new Turkish Prime Minister Abdullah Gul, with talks focusing directly on a timely solution for Cyprus, the island republics bright EU prospects as well as the closely watched issue of whether Turkey will receive a fixed date at the Copenhagen Summit next week for starting negotiations with the Union.

    Afterwards, Turkish Foreign Minister Yasar Yakis and a former ambassador to the UN, hosted a luncheon for his Greek counterpart. Additionally, Papandreou is expected to meet with powerful Justice and Development party (AKP) leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the former Istanbul mayor and the winner of Turkeys general elections last month.

    Other contacts on Papandreous marathon-pace schedule include meetings with Turkish opposition parliament leader Deniz Baikal, who heads the Republican People's (CHP) party, and former ?finance ministry czar? and ex-World Bank senior official Kemal Dervis, who also joined CHP before the recent elections. Finally, Papandreou will also meet with former Turkish FM Ismail Cem before returning to Athens.
