    NICOSIA, MAY 20 (CNA) -- FOREIGN MINISTER ALECOS MICHAELIDES DESCRIBED NEXT MONTH'S WASHINGTON MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT GLAFCOS CLERIDES AND U.S. PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON AS ''A LANDMARK'' WHICH COULD LEAD TO SOME DEVELOPMENTS.

    ADDRESSING THE MEETING OF DISTINGUISHED ACADEMICS TODAY, ANOUIL SAID ''WE CAN SAY IN A WAY THAT CYPRUS IS ENGAGED WITH THE EU AND WE HOPE THE WEDDING WILL TAKE PLACE SOON.''

    TALKING ABOUT EU-CYPRUS LINKS, ANOUIL PRAISED CYPRUS' WEALTH IN EDUCATION AND KNOWLEDGE AND DESCRIBED CYPRIOTS AS WELL FITTED FOR PARTICIPATION IN EU PROJECTS.

    ''CYPRUS' INVOLVEMENT IN EU PROGRAMMES IS IMPRESSIVE,'' HE TOLD ABOUT 80 DELEGATES FROM CYPRUS AND ABROAD ATTENDING THE ONE-DAY MEETING, ORGANISED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF CYPRUS AND THE EU DELEGATION HERE.

    HE SAID CYPRUS ALREADY PARTICIPATES IN EU PROGRAMMES, SUCH AS MED-CAMPUS, MED-MEDIA AND IS ALSO INVOLVED IN ENVIRONMENTAL, EDUCATIONAL AND TOURISM PROGRAMMES.

    FOREIGN MINISTER ALECOS MICHAELIDES, WHO OPENED THE SEMINAR, LIKENED TODAY'S RAPID TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT TO THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OF THE PREVIOUS CENTURY AND POINTED OUT ''THIS OPENS NEW WIDE PROSPECTS IN HUMAN INTELLECT CHANGING THE MANNER OF COOPERATION AND COHABITATION.''

    ''OUR EFFORT TO JOIN IN MUST BE PART OF A GENERAL COOPERATION FRAMEWORK WITH OTHER COUNTRIES IN A BID TO LESSEN THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS WHICH CYPRUS' SMALL SIZE MIGHT HAVE,'' MICHAELIDES SAID.

    THE MINISTER SAID CYPRUS WILL BE REPRESENTED AT A MEETING IN ROME AT THE END OF THE MONTH ON BUILDING THE SOCIETY OF INFORMATION IN THIRD COUNTIES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN BASIN.

    ''OUR OBJECTIVE WILL BE TO BENEFIT FROM THE POSSIBILITIES OFFERED THROUGH COOPERATION IN EUROPE AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE EXTENT OF OUR EXPERTISE AND KNOW-HOW,'' HE ADDED.

    HE ALSO SAID CYPRUS HAS REQUESTED TALKS WITH THE EU TO IDENTIFY WAYS EUROPEAN NETWORKS IN SEA TRANSPORT AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS CAN BE EXTENDED TO CYPRUS.
