    by Iacovos Tsangaris Athens, Oct 2 (CNA) -- Cyprus Defence Minister Socrates Hasikos has called on all European governments that have imposed an arms sales embargo against the Cyprus Republic to reconsider their stance, in the light of the development of a new European defence policy and Cyprus' prospects in joining the European Union.

    [04] Cyprus Parliament - Fuel prices - Increase

    Nicosia, Oct 2 (CNA) -- Fuel prices in Cyprus go up by one cent a litre as from today following a decision by the House of Representatives imposed by high prices of crude oil globally and the current exchange rate of the Cyprus pound against the US dollar.

    According to today's House decision, both the unleaded super petrol (98 octanes and more) and leaded petrol (98 octanes and more) will be sold at petrol stations at 46,2 cents a litre which translates into higher retail prices by 1,1 cent a litre due to the Value Added Tax (one Cyprus pound is trading at 1,54 US dollars).

    [06] Spokesman – EU – Cyprus

    Nicosia, Oct 2 (CNA) – The government has said it would welcome Turkish Cypriot participation in the accession negotiations Cyprus is engaged in with the European Union, reiterating its hope that the Turkish Cypriots will accept a long-standing invitation to that effect by President Glafcos Clerides.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said this would mean that there have been substantive steps in the peace effort for a Cyprus settlement as well, noting also that such a development would entail a slight delay in the accession process.
