President of European Socialist Party against Turkish threats on Cyprus
President of the European Socialist Party and former Foreign Secretary of Britain Robin Cook has said that Turkey's threats that it would annex Cyprus' Turkish occupied territory to mainland Turkey oppose the policy of Britain and that of the European Union.
Speaking to Cyprus News Agency, Cook extended hope that "Ankara will not take such a step" and added that Britain and the EU "want to see a solution to the problem of Cyprus. We do not want to see the division made deeper and more difficult to remove for the future. It is not in the interest of people living in the north of Cyprus that this should happen". (Albawaba.com)
