    [06] President Clerides - UN envoy

    by Maria Myles

    Geneva, Feb 7 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides has said the UN appear satisfied that they have made progress in the Geneva proximity talks between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides, in the sense that they have both put forward their views.

    Replying to questions after a 90-minute meeting here today with the UN Secretary-General's special adviser for Cyprus Alvaro de Soto, the Cypriot President said he cannot say whether any progress has been achieved as one side does not know the other side's positions.

    [07] Greek Cypriots - Turkish Cypriots - London Centre

    London, Feb 7 (CNA) - Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots representing organisations from both communities in London called on Haringey Council not to cut a core grant to a centre used for bicommunal gatherings and events.

    Its chairman, Turkish Cypriot Hasan Raif, speaking during the annual general meeting of the Cypriot Community Centre, which voted for a campaign against a decision by Haringey Council to cut by 54,000 pounds during the next three years the core grant to the centre, said the Cypriot community will do whatever possible for help in the reunification of the island, divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded Cyprus.
