      NOAM CHOMSKY ON THE CYPRUS ISSUE, IRAQ AND THE OLYMPICS
      Thessalonki, 19 April 2004 (17:28 UTC+2)

      The decision on Cyprus must be made after a meticulous
      examination, stated in Thessaloniki today American
      intellectual Noam Chomsky responding to questions by
      reporters on the Annan Plan and the referenda that will be
      held in Cyprus on Saturday.

      Mr. Chomsky avoided adopting a specific stance on the issue
      saying that he does not talk about issues he has not
      examined in detail. He also said that the question is if the
      suggested solution is the best of the existing alternative
      solutions or if there are solutions that are more desirable.

      On the issue of Iraq, he said that the situation
      deteriorates gradually with al-Queda type attacks and this
      action continues to spread inside the country to a degree
      nobody could predict. He said that it is impressive the fact
      that the US military occupation has so many failures in Iraq
      when it ought to be the easiest occupation in history.

      He pointed out that the goal of the invasion of Iraq was the
      establishment of a climate of military security, the
      inauguration of a responsible state authority and the
      protection of energy resources.

      Mr. Chomsky also underlined that the most important of all
      is that the largest part of the population in Iraq rejects
      the presence of Westerners and their dominion over Iraq.

      Responding to questions on whether there can be safe Olympic
      Games organized in Athens, Mr. Chomsky stated that terrorist
      acts cannot be prevented, stressing that it is practically
      impossible to be totally protected from terrorism anywhere
      in the world.
