  • Description

    TURKEY'S DELEGATION TO THE LONDON CONFERENCE ON CYPURS, STARTING NEXT WEDNESDAY (JAN 15), ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY (SATURDAY) LED BY THE TURKISH FOREIGN MINISTER, MR FERIDUN CEMAL ERKIN. HE WAS MET BY LORD CARRINGTON, MINISTER OFT STATE AT THE FOREIGN OFFICE, AND SOME 400 TURKISH CYPRIOTS -- MANY WAVING ANTI-GREEK BANNERS.

    THE CONFERENCE, WHICH FOLLOWS VIOLENT CLASHES BETWEEN THE ISLAND REPUBLIC'S GREEK AND TURKISH COMMUNITIES, WILL BE ATTENDED BY BRITISH, GREEK AND TURKISH MINISTERS AND REPRESENTATIVES OF THE TWO CYPRIOT COMMUNITIES. IT COULD LAST ABOUT TWO WEEKS.

    ARCHBISHOP MAKARIOS, PRESIDENT OF CYPRUS WHO IS NOT EXPECTED TO ATTEND, HAS REJECTED SUGGESTIONS BY DR. KUTCHUK, THE TURKISH CYPRIOT VICE-PRESIDENT, THAT THE ISLAND BE DIVIDED. PARTITION, HE SAYS, WOULD "OPEN THE DOOR TO CHAOS". IF THE LONDON CONFERENCE TAILS TO PRODUCE A SOLUTION, HE PLANS TO APPEAL TO THE UNITED NATIONS.

    MEANWHILE, IN CYPRUS ITSELF, BRITISH TRUCE FORCES TODAY CONTINUED REMOVING THE LAST OF 350 ROADBLOCKS ERECTED SINCE THE TROUBLES BEGAN. BUT THERE ARE STILL VIRTUALLY NO PEOPLE CROSSING THE CEASEFIRE LINE DIVIDING THE TWO COMMUNITIES.
