    [01] Foreign envoys to visit Cyprus after elections

    Nicosia, Jan 7 (CNA) -- President Glafcos Clerides announced that top diplomats will come to Cyprus at the end of March to prepare the new round of UN-sponsored direct talks.

    In statements yesterday, the Cypriot President said he was officially informed that UN Secretary-General's Special Advisor for Cyprus, Diego Cordovez, would be in Cyprus at the end of March.

    Cordovez visited Cyprus in November 1997. He had assured he would return to the island after next month's presidential elections to organise the peace process.

    Clerides said after Cordovez, Britain's special representative for Cyprus, Sir David Hannay, would visit the island, followed by US Presidential Emissary, Richard Holbrooke.

    Britain took over on January 1 the European Union's six month rotating presidency. Membership talks with Cyprus will start on March 30, 1998.

    Two rounds of direct talks last summer failed to produce any results after Turkish Cypriot leader, Rauf Denktash unleashed an unprecedented attack on the EU for its decision to start accession negotiations with Cyprus.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37 per cent of the island's territory.
