    Nicosia, Feb 7 (CNA) - Liz Mammatt, Conservative Group Leader of the London Borough of Barnet, called on the new Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, MP Fancis Maude, to "take a positive stance" on the Cyprus problem, as opposed to the "false hopes raised when Labour was in opposition".

    [06] Kasoulides - Statements - Proximity talks

    By Maria Myles

    Geneva Feb 7 (CNA) - Direct negotiations between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides will take place once proximity talks move ahead and there is common ground and when the UN decide to invite the two sides to direct negotiations, without ne cessarily announcing it ahead of time, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said here today.

    The minister did not rule out a face to face meeting between President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash during the third round of UN-sponsored talks later on in the year. Kasoulides explained that the objective of the first two rounds of talks was not to bridge the positions of the two sides but rather to give the UN a better insight into the views outlined by the sides.
