    AS INTENSE DIPLOMATIC ACTIVITY CONTINUES IN A BID TO FIND A PEACEFUL SOLUTION TO THE EXPLOSIVE CYPRUS ISSUE, TURKISH JETS TODAY (TUESDAY) CONTINUED THEIR RECONNAISSANCE MISSIONS OVER THE KOKKINA AREA OF NORTH-WESTERN CYPRUS.

    ACCORDING TO A TURKISH MILITARY SPOKESMAN THE JETS DID NOT OPEN FIRE ON GREEK CYPRIOT POSITIONS DESPITE REPORTS THAT BOTH GREEKS AND TURKS HAD EXCHANGED SMALL ARMS FIRE AROUND THE TURKISH-HELD VILLAGE.

    DESPITE THE HIGH LEVEL OF MILITARY PREPAREDNESS BY BOTH GREECE AND TURKEY - THERE WERE FEW VISIBLE SIGNS OF MILITARY MOVEMENT, AT ANY RATE, IN ISTANBUL, WHERE LIFE IS BEING CARRIED ON NORMALLY.

    A VISNEWS CAMERAMAN IN THE OLD TURKISH CAPITAL NOTED THAT THE ONLY SIGN OF "ABNORMALITY" WAS IN THE CLUSTERS OF PEOPLE AROUND THE NEWSPAPER STANDS. TURKEY, ONE OF THE FEW COUNTRIES WITHOUT A TELEVISION SERVICE, RELIES MAINLY ON ITS PRESS FOR NEWS OF NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE.

    ALL THE PAPERS, BOTH IN TURKISH AND FOREIGN LANGUAGES, CARRIED IN HEADLINES STORIES OF THE TURKISH REPRISAL RAIDS ON CYPRUS - AND THE VENDORS DID BRISK BUSINESS AS SHOPPERS AND WORKERS WENT ON THEIR WAY IN DOWNTOWN ISTANBUL.

    EVEN THE CITY'S BUSTLING PORT WAS DEVOID OF ANY EXTRAORDINARY MOVEMENT AND ONLY THE FERRIES WHICH PLY FROM THE ASIATIC TO THE EUROPEAN BANKS OF THE BOSPHORUS GAVE THE HARBOUR ANY SENSE OF ACTIVITY.
