Soyer: Greek Cypriot side wants to close the border gates

Source: BRT  
01 December 2006

Prime Minister Ferdi Sabit Soyer has said that the aim of the law in South Cyprus concerning the properties formerly owned by Greek Cypriots in the North was to create the conditions for the closure of border gates between the two sides in on the island.

Mr Soyer told the BRT today that the Greek Cypriot Side has never been in support of the opening of border gates between the South and the North.

Calling the amended legislation in South Cyprus as an undemocratic one, the Prime Minister pointed out that the Greek Cypriot Side had first tried to prevent its people from crossing into the North and later, to prevent the Turkish Cypriot People from going into the South by such laws.

Complaining that the Greek Cypriot Side has been trying to create the necessary conditions for the closure of the border gates, he said the Greek Cypriot Administration had carried out strict inspections at the borders and then employed strict measures, and this law is the latest move towards achieving this objective.

He said the law also revealed the fact that the Greek Cypriot Side has been trying to get rid of the call issued for the lifting of the international isolation of the Turkish Cypriot people after the meeting between President Talat and the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan in Geneva and the letter sent to the two sides by the UN Undersecretary General for Political Affairs Ibrahim Gambari.
