    [01] Clerides - political leaders

    by Myria Antoniadou

    New York, Sep 26 (CNA) -- President Glafcos Clerides briefed political leaders accompanying him to New York about the meetings he held this week on the Cyprus issue.

    The President updated political leaders on his second meeting with US Presidential Emissary Richard Holbrooke, his meeting with the Foreign Ministers of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council over a lunch he hosted and yesterday's with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

    Cyprus political leadership has decided to assess the present situation in the Cyprus problem at a meeting of the National Council, the top advisory body to the President, after he and party leaders or their representatives return to the island.

    Today President Clerides and political leaders will attend a dinner organised by the Cyprus Federation of America.

    [02] Cyprus Rally - Greek lead

    Nicosia, Sep 26 (CNA) -- Angelos Zivas of Greece stormed into an early lead Friday night at the 26th Cyprus Rally, the penultimate coefficient 20 event of the 1998 European Championship.

    Cyprus Champion Andreas Tsouloftas came into overnight regroup in Nicosia in second place, thirteen seconds behind Toyota Corolla of Zivas.

    Another Cypriot, Paraskevas Paraskeva, was in third place, a further one minute 20 seconds behind.

    Czech driver Emil Triner impressed in the Skoda Octavia Kit car, finishing the first leg fourth overall and first of the formula two competitors. He is currently lying second on the European Formula two leader board.

    Italy's Andrea Navarra, who has come to the Mediterranean island event in an endeavour to overhaul the European Championship leader, had dropped down the field after side- swiping a pylon in one of the night's stages and damaging the rear of his car.

    Tasos Gemenis of Greece was still going strong but his compatriot Konstantinos Argyriou was out of the Rally, as were both the Israelis.

    The 888 Kilometre rally, one of the toughest in the European calendar, continues today with a 492 kilometre section which will take the crews to the Paphos Forest in the west of the island and through the Troodos mountains before returning to Nicosia at night.

    The rally finishes on Sunday evening.
