    [03] British Foreign Secretary - Cyprus

    London, Sep 27 (CNA) - British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, said that Turkish settlers in Cyprus are one of the main problems in reaching a settlement on the island, divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    Speaking at a meeting held in Brighton yesterday on the fringes of the Labour Party Conference, Cook added that some progress had been made at the UN-led proximity talks, noting that "Cyprus is in the front for accession to the European Union". CNA/KT/RG/MCH/2000


    [10] Finance Minister - IMF - World Bank annual meetings

    Nicosia, Sep 27 (CNA) -- Finance Minister Takis Klerides pointed to the vulnerability of small, open economies to developments in global markets and suggested diversification of their economies, especially into production which is less dependent on energy inputs and which can tap into the globalisation process.

    Addressing the Annual Meetings of the Governors of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Prague, Klerides spoke on how the global economic situation and the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) initiative against "harmful tax competition" can and are affecting certain small states like Cyprus.

    [11] British MP - CoE - Cyprus problem

    by Nikos Markides Strasbourg, Sep 27 (CNA) - British Labour Party MP and member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (CoE), Thomas Cox, stressed today that Turkey would soon be challenged at the CoE for failing to honour its obligations both at the CoE and the European Court of Human Rights.

    Speaking after a meeting in Strasbourg with Turkish occupied Famagusta Mayor Sophi Phitidou and the Chairman of the Political Affairs Committee of the CoE Terry Davis, the British MP said that if a country is a member of the CoE, as Turkey is, then it has " to obey by the rules of the CoE", adding that "we know very clearly that Turkey is not doing that on many cases no more so than the Loizidou case".
