Commission is working to harmonise Turkish Cypriots with the acquis, says Cypriot Permanent Representative to the EU

The European commission is playing a more active role as regards the harmonisation of Turkish Cypriots with the acquis communautaire in that EU rules and regulations will be effective throughout Cyprus, Kornelios Korneliou, Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the EU in Brussels said on Tuesday.

Asked by Cypriot journalists whether the EU will take a more active role in the negotiations for a Cyprus settlement, the Ambassador said since his election President Nicos Anastasiades called for a more active EU involvement.

The Commission, he added, with the consent of Turkish Cypriots, has a more active role, especially when it comes to harmonising the Turkish Cypriots with the acquis.
