    Background: Less than a week after Greece rejoined the military wing of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, (NATO) Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash met in Ankara with Turkey's military leaders, for the first time since last month's coup in Turkey. Diplomatic sources said Greece's re-entry into NATO could have a positive effect on the already improved relations and inter-communal talks in process since last month between Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Denktash met fist with Turkish Prime Minister Bulent Ulusu in his offices. The two men then left to meet junta Head of State and Armed Forces chief General kenan Evren, at the Presidential residence.

    September's military take-over in Turkey was reported to have cast an even deeper gloom over the long-deadlocked Cyprus talks. This resulted from General Evrern's declaration that he would continue to guarantee the happiness and well-being of Cyprus as an integral part of Turkey.

    With improving relations between the two Cypriot populations, Friday's discussions between General Evren and Mr. Denktash centred on the possible repatriation of Greek-Cypriots from the Varosha area of Famagusta. This is the beach resort area in the northern part of the country , invaded by Turkish troops in 1974, forcing the inhabitants to flee south.

    Mr. Denktash has said his side is demanding "equal political partnership" in any new Cyprus agreements, although the Turks comprise less then 20 percent of the population, and presently control 35 percent of the land.
