Turkey: UK-Greek Cyprus deal 'casts a shadow' on peace talks
Turkish Foreign Ministry said Friday that a memorandum of understanding signed between Britain and the Greek Cypriot administration "casted a shadow" on efforts to reach a permanent and a fair settlement to the Cyprus problem.

British Premier Gordon Brown and Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias signed on Thursday a memorandum of understanding which made reference to "a federation based on a bi-communal and bi-zonal structure."

"The memorandum of understanding, which is away from being constructive at a time when the two leaders of the island engaged in a negotiations process, is a negative intervention," the ministry said in a statement.
