    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 9: CLERIDES: "WELL, MY REACTION; IS THAT THEY ARE TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. THEY AMOUNT TO THE VIRTUAL OCCUPATION OF CYPRUS BY THE FORCES OF THE COUNTRIES CONCERNED."



    QUESTION: "ARE YOU STILL STANDING BY YOUR DEMAND FOR A UNITED NATIONS FORCE FOR CYPRUS RATHER THAN A NATO ONE?"



    ANSWER: "YES, WE ARE."



    QUESTION: "IS THERE ANY ROOM FOR COMPROMISE?"



    ANSWER: "THE ONLY POSSIBLE ROOM FOR COMPROMISE IS THAT IF THE PRINCIPAL IS ACCEPTED THAT THE FORCES SHOULD BE UNITED NATIONS FORCES, THE COMPOSITION OF THE FORCE MAY BE AGREED UPON."



    QUESTION: "DO YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO GER ANY FURTHER AT THE LONDON CONFERENCE?"



    ANSWER: "WELL, I MUST SAY THAT THERE IS VERY LITTLE ROOM FOR AGREEMENT."



    DENKTASH: "THE FIRST IS THAT THE NUMBER OF THE TURKISH CONTINGENT IN CYPRUS SHOULD BE INCREASED. AND THE SECOND ONE IS THAT THE TREATY OF GURANTEE SHOULD BE IN FULL FORCE IN EFFECT. IT IS THIS TREATY OF GUARANTEE AND THE TURKISH CONTINGENT WHICH HAS SAVED US FROM COMPLETE MASSACRE LAST TIME AND WE ARE VERY SENSITIVE ABOUT THIS."



    QUESTION: "WELL, IT IS NOT A QUESTION OF COMPROMISE, YOU SEE. THESE CONDITIONS SHOULD NOT BE UNACCEPTABLE TO THE GREEKS, IF THEY DO NOT INTEND TO MASSACRE US AGAIN. WE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ATTACKED AND KILLED AND OUR CONDITIONS ON SECURITY SHOULD BE ACCEPTABLE TO THE OTHER SIDE IF THEY REALLY INTEND TO NOT ATTACK US."
