    [02] Spokesman - Cyprus problem

    Nicosia, Apr 6 (CNA) -- The government believes that UN, US and UK envoys dealing with the Cyprus problem agree in principle that the UN-led proximity talks, due to resume in May in New York, should be upgraded.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou told his daily briefing today that President Glafcos Clerides "discussed ways to upgrade the talks in the third round in such a way that they become more effective" with US Presidential Emissary for Cyprus Alfred Moses in New York on Wednesday.

    [03] Spokesman - Verheugen - EU

    Nicosia, Apr 6 (CNA) -- The government has welcomed statements by a senior European Union official on Cyprus' accession course, the political situation on the island and Turkey's bid to join the Union and described them as "very positive".

    "We consider Gunter Verheugen's remarks as very positive and we welcome them. We share his views on Turkey's relations with the EU and we also agree with his interpretation of the Helsinki conclusions, which disengage the solution of the Cyprus question from the Republic's accession," Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today.
