Letter: Turkey and the EU

Sir: According to the Zurich and London treaties of 1959 establishing the bi-communal Republic of Cyprus, Turkish Cypriots have the right to participate in any discussions connected with the foreign affairs of "Cyprus" and veto any adverse decisions. Turkey, like the UK and Greece, as a guarantor power, has the treaty right to be consulted about the future of the island (report, 27 October).
