    [02] Cyprus - UN report - Letter

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) -- Cyprus has refuted Turkish claims that the UN should note in its six-monthly report on the renewal of the peace-keeping force in Cyprus that it needs the consent of the Turkish Cypriot side.

    In a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Cyprus' permanent representative to the UN Sotirios Zackheos said the continuing effort by the government of Turkey and its subordinate local administration in Turkish occupied Cyprus to exploit the renewal of UNFICYP has forced him to outline in writing the government's positions on the matter.

    [03] Cyprus Rally - Special stage cancelled

    Limassol, Jun 1 (CNA) - A fire that broke out near the Simou-Stavros area in the Paphos district during special stage three in the first leg of the Cyprus Rally 2001, led to the cancellation of the third out of six special stages.

    A total of 27 cars had completed the third special stage when the fire broke out in a nearby forest, causing the rest of the cars behind to make a detour. CNA/RM/MM/RG/2001


    [04] Spokesman - House - Party consultations

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) -- As consultations among the eight parliamentary parties continue with a view to find consensus for the new President of the House of Representatives, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou has said the newly elected House will have a very "decisive role to play" in the country's road towards European Union membership.

    The leaders of the eight newly elected parties to the House, after last Sunday's parliamentary elections, have intensified their daily consultations in person or by correspondence with a view to make the best possible choice for a House president. CNA/MM/RG/2001


    [05] Cyprus Rally - End of first leg

    Limassol, Jun 1 (CNA) - Marcus Gronholm in a Peugeot is the winner of today's first leg of the Cyprus Rally 2001, which was full of surprises, many retirements and fire incidents.

    Gronholm took the lead early, followed by Richard Burns in a Subaru and Francois Delecour in a Ford, while Tommi Makinen in a Mitsubishi, who is currently leading the World Championship, was out of the race when his car went off the road and fell 10 metres down a bank during special stage four.
