    [01] UN chief - Statement - Cyprus question

    by Maria Myles New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has endorsed the view that a statement he made earlier this week on the Cyprus peace talks does not imply recognition of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime in occupied Cyprus, nor does it suggest derecognition of the Republic of Cyprus.

    Annan's views were made public by his spokesman Fred Eckhard, who recalled the replies the UN chief's Special Adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto gave to press questions.

    [02] National Council - Meeting - Cyprus peace talks

    by Maria Myles New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- The National Council, top advisory body to the Cyprus President on the Cyprus question comprising parliamentary party leaders, will continue today its marathon session in New York on developments in the UN-led peace efforts.

    The meeting is taking place in the wake of a statement by UN Secretary- General Kofi Annan at the start of the peace talks on Tuesday which referred to the "equal status of the parties", which must be recognised explicitly in a settlement of the Cyprus question and noted that each party represented its side and no-one else at the talks.

    [03] Greek Foreign Minister - UN chief - Cyprus talks

    by Maria Myles New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou has said he got assurances from UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in relation to a statement he made on Tuesday on the Cyprus peace talks, which was open to different interpretations, and appeared cautiously optimistic that the current impasse would be overcome.

    Speaking after a meeting with Annan late Thursday, he said Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides, who abstained from meetings in the peace process in the past two days as a result of Annan's statement, will take the final decision about future developments on the matter.

    by Maria Myles New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- Turkish Foreign Minister Ismail Cem has expressed hope that the Cyprus peace talks, that opened in New York on Tuesday, will move on in a positive manner.

    Asked by CNA yesterday if he believed the UN-led proximity peace talks will move forward, he replied: "I hope that the proximity talks will continue positively."

    [05] Cyprus Foreign Minister - NAM - Statement

    New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has underlined that the participation of the Greek Cypriot side in the new Cyprus peace talks currently taking place are based on UN resolutions and international legitimacy, something which cannot be compromised.

    In a statement to the Ministerial Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in New York yesterday, Kasoulides warned that if the fait accomplis created in Cyprus through the use of force or by secession were to be accepted "it will indeed create a dangerous precedent that will cause problems to the whole international community."

    New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- Malta has fully supported the UN Secretary- General's efforts for an early settlement in Cyprus, based on UN resolutions.

    The support was expressed by the country's Foreign Minister Joe Borg during his speech at the 55th session of the UN General Assembly.

    [07] Greek Foreign Minister - UN speech - Cyprus - Turkey

    New York, Sep 15 (CNA) -- Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou has said a settlement in Cyprus should be seen as a "win-win situation" and underlined that the implementation of UN resolutions are not only important for the Republic itself but also for the moral standing of the UN.

    Addressing the UN General Assembly on Thursday, Papandreou also said double standards and inaction on Cyprus undermines the credibility of the Organisation and appealed to Turkish Cypriots to take the opportunity to become members of the European family.
