  • Description

    The Greek and Turkish Prime Ministers ended their talks in Brussels on Saturday (31 May) with an agreement to resolve their problems over the Aegean Sea and Cyprus peacefully.

    It was the first Greek-Turkish summit meeting since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus last July.

    In a joint communique issued after their 3 1/2-hour meeting, the two leaders -- Mr. Constantine Karamanlis and his Turkish opposite number, Mr. Suleyman Demirel -- agreed that their dispute over oil exploration rights in the Aegean should go to the World Court at the Hague for decision.

    They also expressed support for the Vienna negotiations between the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities, which resume next month.

    The communique indicated that Mr. Demirel had been flexible in the talks because previously Turkey had pressed for a bilateral solution to the Aegean rights dispute rather than taking the issue to the World Court.

    Also the Turkish Government previously had pushed for a solution to the Cyprus problem primarily through direct talks between Greece and Turkey, rather than by meetings of the leaders of the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities.
