Turkey will open port to Cyprus

In today's news, we hear of Turkey's 'open port' offer to Cyprus.

In a move to reduce the rancour in the dispute over the divided island of Cyprus and Turko-Greeko-Cypriot relations, the Turkish Government has suggested that they will open a bottle of 1997 Vintage Cockburn's Port and share a glass or two with their Greek Cypriot counterparts.

A spokesman for Finland, which, as the current holder the Presidency of the European Union, is negotiating with Turkey and Cyprus, said:
"Cockburns? Oh, that's alright now - the clinic gave me some special ointment

A spokespoultry for Turkeys Against Christmas said:
"Any port in a storm."
