    [01] President Clerides - UN Secretary-General - Meeting

    by Maria Chrysanthou New York, Sep 6 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides has said he is satisfied with a meeting he had late last night with UN Secretary-General, as Kofi Annan appears determined to back a substantive dialogue to reach a settlement in Cyprus.

    Talking to reporters in New York after the 20-minute meeting at UN headquarters, President Clerides said "we exchanged views on this issue (the Cyprus talks), the issue of Strovilia and the case of missing persons in Cyprus."

    [02] Central Bank Governor - Interest rates liberalisation

    Nicosia, Sep 6 (CNA) -- The liberalisation of interest rates, to be introduced on January 1st 2001, will have only positive effects on the Cyprus economy and will most probably result in lower rates, Central Bank Governor Afxentis Afxentiou has said.

    Speaking to CNA, Afxentiou expressed confidence the introduction of liberalisation should not be delayed, as the preconditions the House of Representatives had set in order to pass the relevant Bill are almost met.

    Invited to comment on a letter on the issue sent by Turkish Foreign Minister Ismael Cem to all EU member states, Rodousakis also said it is up to Ankara to keep up with the good climate created between Greece and Turkey, while the Cypriot official said the Cyprus peace talks will definitely affect Turkey's relations with the EU.

    Nicosia, Sep 6 (CNA) - Cyprus Government Spokesman, Michalis Papapetrou, said today that the Greek Cypriot side had not been sounded out on a possible fifth round of proximity talks on the Cyprus problem, stressing moreover that nothing of the sort had been agreed.

    Commenting on a statement yesterday by UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, Papapetrou expressed the government's satisfaction "with the fact that the Secretary-General shares the view that the preliminary stage has been completed and that now we must get into the substantive stage, into real negotiations", noting that this position must now be put into action.
