CNA - Maria Koniotou - Helsinki/Finland 08/11/2018 17:09

The Cyprus problem and concerns are concerns of the Europeans and of the European People`s Party (EPP), Manfred Weber said after his election in Helsinki as the EPP`s candidate for the European Commission presidency.

Moreover Weber, who was speaking during a press conference, said that he did not believe in Turkey`s full accession to the EU. Weber was responding to a question by CNA about his position on Turkey`s EU course in view of the fact that this country still occupies part of Cyprus` territory, which is European territory, and has launched threats against Cyprus due to research in the Cypriot Exclusive Economic Zone for hydrocarbon reserves.
