Cyprus denies president meeting Turkish emissary
font size    

Cypriot government spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides on Tuesday denied a report saying President Tassos Papadopoulos received a Turkish journalist, an emissary of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The spokesman described the report as "figment of imagination", which was carried on a Turkish newspaper Hurriyet. The report said a Turkish woman named Nil Demirkazik had a cupof coffee with Papadopoulos in Cyprus because she was considered ane missary of Erdogan.

The report emerged amid rumors that Cyprus was seeking a meeting between Papadopoulos and Erdogan to discuss ways to find a solution to the Cyprus issue.

Cyprus has been divided into Greek Cyprus in the south and Turkish Cyprus in the north since 1974 when Turkish forces entered the north following a failed coup seeking union with Greece. After a UN reunification plan was rejected by Greek Cypriots last April, the internationally-recognized south joined the European Union on May 1, 2004, while the Turkey-recognized north was left outside the bloc.
