-TURKISH CYPRIOT PRESIDENT CRITICIZES GREEK CYPRIOT AGREEMENT WITH RUSSIA

 ANKARA (A.A) - 21.11.2008 - Turkish Cypriot President Mehmet Ali Talat criticized on Thursday a memorandum of understanding signed between Greek Cypriot administration and the Russian Federation.

"Signing such unilateral agreements with countries which knew nothing about the state of the current talks on the island will not help the negotiations process," Talat told a round table meeting on Cyprus at the Economic Policy Research Foundation of Turkey.

"Such agreements simply do not exist and they have no binding power on our part, and they do not have effect on the solution of the Cyprus problem," he said.

Talat said such "a wrongful attitude" of the Greek Cypriot administration only eroded the principles and foundations Turkish and Greek Cypriot sides had established.
