    [02] Spokesman - Cyprus proximity talks

    by Maria Myles New York, Sep 22 (CNA) -- Cyprus Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou has said the Greek Cypriot side wishes to see the overwhelming majority of Greek Cypriot refugees return to their homes in the Greek Cypriot administered area of a federal Cyprus and secure for the rest the right to return to their homes.

    Speaking to the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation, Papapetrou said some criteria relating to territory were discussed during the ongoing proximity talks, which started here last week, adding that things are likely to become more concrete in the next weeks or months, when proposals are expected to be put forward on a map.

    [05] UNFICYP - World Clean Up Day

    Nicosia, Sep 22 (CNA) -- Members of the UN peace-keeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) are today cleaning up garbage throughout the 180-kilometre long buffer zone created on the island after the 1974 Turkish invasion and occupation of 37 percent of the Republic's territory, joining in with groups and individuals around the globe taking part in World Clean Up Day.

    "The aim is to contribute to a worldwide conservation initiative and to help improve the environment in and around the buffer zone," an UNFICYP press release says, noting that some of the rubbish gets blown into the buffer zone while some is dumped there and "the result is ugly, unhealthy and a threat to the area's wildlife."
