Turkey's PM calls for 'constructive role' over Cyprus issue

The Turkish prime minister said on Tuesday that Turkey was supporting the good will mission of the United Nations (UN) in Cyprus.

Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey extended full support to a lasting settlement in Cyprus within the scope of good will mission of the UN secretary general.

"A comprehensive settlement is the only way out for relevant parties," Erdogan told the gathering of his Justice & Development (AK) Party at the parliament.

Erdogan said in case the Greek Cypriot administration fulfilled the requirements of a compromise in the leaders' declaration, it would not be so hard to achieve that goal.

"We expect the Greek Cypriot administration to appreciate these efforts and give a response to endeavors of TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) leadership," he said.

Erdogan called on all related parties to encourage the Greek Cypriot administration to assume a constructive role.

"We think it will be very beneficial if Britain and Greece encourage the Greek Cypriot administration," he said.

Also, Erdogan said he would leave for Spain on Sunday and discuss important issues with his Spanish counterpart Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero during a Turkey-Spain summit.

Erdogan also said he would receive Nodo Award in the Spanish city of Seville.
