    [01] Cyprus - US State Department reports

    Nicosia, Mar 2 (CNA) - The government believes the US State Department references to Cyprus in its report on narcotics and a second one on money laundering and financial crimes reflect the progress and serious improvement the Republic has achieved in these fields, its spokesman Michalis Papapetrou told his daily briefing today. The reports for 1999, released yesterday, say Cyprus has made "further progress in 1999 in the fight against money laundering" while its authorities aggressively pursue the "distribution of drugs use, as they do illegal cultivation, sale, transport and financing".

    [04] Cyprus government - Peace process

    Nicosia, Mar 2 (CNA) - The Cyprus government has called for direct negotiations between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish sides to reach a settlement on the island as it believes that if the sides "talk just for the sake of talking" the process will lose its credibility. Speaking on the Cyprus problem during a lunch organised today by the Cyprus Rotaries in Nicosia, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said the time has come for one side to know the positions the other is putting forward during their separate meetings with UN officials within the framework of the proximity talks.

    [05] UN Special Adviser - Visit to occupied areas

    Nicosia, Mar 2 (CNA) - The UN Secretary-General's Special Adviser for Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, today visited the Turkish occupied village of Rizokarpaso and the monastery of Apostolos Andreas, in the eastern tip of the island, "to get a personal impression of the life here". On their side, Greek Cypriots enclaved living in the northern areas under illegal Turkish rule said they have seen "many of his likes", and that they believed a solution will be found, but not one that will satisfy them.
