    [04] Greek Foreign Minister - UN envoy - Cyprus

    Athens, Mar 14 (CNA) - Greek Foreign Minister, George Papandreou, said today that Turkey's European Union course "gives a new momentum to the effort for solving the Cyprus problem".

    Papandreou was speaking after a meeting in Athens with the UN Secretary-General's Special Adviser for Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, who said he did not foresee face-to-face talks on the Cyprus problem at this stage and noted that meaningful negotiations need not be face-to-face.



    [05] Cyprus - Germany - Tourism prospects

    Nicosia, Mar 14 (CNA) - Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Nicos Rolandis, said the government's aim for the year 2000 is to attract 300 thousand German tourists to the island, a press release issued today says.

    Speaking at a press conference yesterday on the sidelines of the Berlin International Fair, Rolandis described Germany as "a very important country for Cyprus" because it "holds second place" regarding the number of tourists from this country visiting the island.



    [06] Cyprus - Drug related crimes - British proposal

    [07] British envoy - Press conference

    Nicosia, Mar 14 (CNA) - The chances of reaching a solution at present are far better than in the past several years and in the years to come ahead, Britain's envoy for Cyprus, Sir David Hannay has said, pointing out however that it is up to the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides to make decisive progress towards a settlement.

    The British diplomat called for "a gear change" at the resumption of the third round of UN-led proximity talks on 23 May and invited the two sides to encourage the UN to be proactive in its search to bridge the gaps between them.

    Furthermore, he said the two sides should abandon what he described as "zero-sum game", whereby in making any shift each side tries to score a point against the other.

    Sir David welcomed the improvement in Greco-Turkish relations, noted the sustained and determined involvement of the international community in the Cyprus peace effort and said the European Union dimension is working in a very positive way as all concerned are now trying to reach the same goal, EU accession.

    Referring to the format of the talks, Hannay dismissed press suggestions that direct negotiations was "really the heart of the matter" and said the UN would take into serious consideration the views of both sides before it embarks on person to person negotiations.
