Turkey's proposal regarding the ports

Source: TRNC Ministry of Foreign Affairs  
08 December 2006

Turkey proposed to open one of its sea and airports for one year in return of the one-year opening of Ercan Airport and Famagusta port and the start of a settlement initiative in Cyprus in 2007.

The proposal, which was taken up during the Meeting of Permanent Representatives in Brussels, was conveyed orally to EU Term President Finland, the UK, Italy, Spain and Sweden. According to the proposal, the related sides would return to their current position if a settlement could not be reached until the end of 2007.

The Greek Cypriot administration stated that they would never approve the opening of Ercan Airport to international flights and the government Spokesman of the Greek Cypriot administration Christodoulos Pashiardis said: This could never happen”.

The EU Permanent Representatives Committee (COREPER), which consists of the permanent representatives of the EU member countries in Brussels, has decided to continue to discuss Turkey’s proposal after consulting their capitals.
