    Background: Turkish Foreign Minister Turan Gunes returned home to a hero's welcome on Thursday (1 August). He was received at Ankara airport by Turkish Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit and other dignitaries.

    Mr. Gunes was one of the three Foreign Ministers who concluded the Geneva agreement calling for a ceasefire in battle-torn Cyprus on Tuesday (30 July). His co-signatories were Greek Foreign Minister George Mavros and Britain's Foreign Secretary James Callaghan.

    The Foreign Minister's warm welcome was not surprising in view of the way the agreement had already been hailed as "A major achivement" by Premier Ecevit. He had told this to a news conference on Wednesday (31 July) and added that his country wanted a lasting friendship with Greece.

    The Geneva casefire accord had been received with general satisfaction throughout Turkey as politicians and the press widely congratulated the Turkish delegation -- led by Mr. Gunes -- for re-inforcing the military success of the 20 July invasion of Cyprus by Turkish troops.
