    [01] De Soto - Denktash

    Geneva, Feb 3 (CNA) - Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash today said he considers a written statement by President Glafcos Clerides on the Cyprus peace effort as "disruptive", adding he has replied in writing and will deal with it when he considers the time fit.

    In statements to the press after a 90-minute meeting with the UN Secretary General's special advisor for Cyprus Alvaro de Soto, within the framework of proximity talks on the Cyprus question, Denktash claimed the Cyprus President issued the statement in a bid to make him leave the negotiating table but he will not do so.

    [02] Iran - Cyprus - Combating drug trafficking

    Nicosia, Feb 3 (CNA) - Officials from the Iranian airport authorities had visited Cyprus in January to look into ways of controlling drug trafficking from their country to the island, while another delegation will arrive here in the next few weeks for the same purpose, the embassy of Iran announced here today.

    The Cyprus police have often found hard drugs on people coming here from Iran. Today a court in the southern coastal town of Larnaca issued an eight-day arrest warrant against an Iranian who tried to illegally bring in four kilos of heroin hidden in three Persian carpets.

    [03] Holy Synod - Cyprus question

    Nicosia, Feb 3 (CNA) - The Primate of the Church of Cyprus Archbishop Chrystostomos will invite President Glafcos Clerides and party leaders for an exchange of views on the Cyprus problem, following a request by the members of the Holy Synod that convened today.

    The Holy Synod, comprising top church leaders, met to discuss the Cyprus question after statements made by the Kyrenia Bishop Pavlos that a bizonal, bicommunal federation envisaged as a settlement on the island will not safeguard the human rights of all citizens.

    She is the seventh person, including a three-year-old boy, who died when a minibus carrying 35 passengers crashed into a cement protective wall at a steep curve on the Platres-Moniatis road.
