    ANKARA (ANA/A.Panagopoulos)

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Costas Karamanlis on Sunday asked Ankara to contribute to an equitable solution to the Cyprus issue, also saying that he backed Turkey's orientation towards Europe.

    Karamanlis was visiting the neighbouring country to take part in a congress of the ruling Justice and Development party.

    "I would call on Ankara to contribute to a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, which would allow all Cypriots to enjoy the fruits of their participation in the European Union," he told congress delegates.

    "The European prospect for Turkey is not an easy route, but, despite this, it is necessary. It will lead Turkey to the crossroads with the West, without making the country lose its place as a gateway to the East," Karamanlis added.

    He noted that the road to Europe meant justice, progress, prosperity and equality.

    "We are looking forward to a full normalisation of bilateral ties (between Greece and Turkey). International law, international conventions and the principles and values of the European Union constitute the foundations of our common future, a future of permanent peace and security in the 21st century," the ND leader said.

    Karamanlis also met Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for 30 minutes of talks.

    Also addressing the congress was Development Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos, representing Prime Minister Costas Simitis and the ruling PASOK party.

    Tsohatzopoulos, the deputy head of the European Socialist Party, said that Turkey's European orientation was gradually creating a new framework of rapprochement and growth in bilateral ties.

    He said that Greece hoped there was a chance of working with Turkey to attain stability and a full normalisation of ties, and find an equitable solution to the Cyprus issue.
