Turkey extends proactive support for Cyprus sollution: EU's Rehn

EU's commissioner for enlargement said on Friday that Turkey extended a "proactive support" for the solution of the conflict.

EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn held a press conference at the buffer zone in Lefkosa after completing his talks in Cyprus.

Rehn said that there was a quite positive political atmosphere in Ankara and Turkey would surely support the process if the two Cypriot leaders reached a consensus.

Rehn said 2009 was a "remarkable opportunity" for the unification of Cyprus, adding that a probable solution in the island should comply with the acquis, and therefore, EU was ready to support all the technical support for the success of such process.

Upon a question on Ankara's stance towards the ongoing negotiation process in Cyprus, Rehn said the Turkish capital extended a "proactive support" for the solution of the conflict.

Rehn also added that European Commission expressed its support for the solution and unification in the island.
