    [01] UN report - Cyprus

    Nicosia, Jun 5 (CNA) -- UN-led proximity talks between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides were not possible to resume in late January despite an invitation to the parties, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has noted in his report on the UN operations in Cyprus, adding that his Special Adviser Alvaro de Soto continues to work "so as to be of assistance to the parties at the appropriate time."

    Annan also notes that UNFICYP operates under restrictions imposed by the Turkish Cypriot illegal regime and the Turkish occupation forces, which continue to violate the military status quo in the village of Strovilia, on the south east of the island.

    [03] President Clerides - Slovak Chief Negotiator for EU

    Nicosia, Jun 5 (CNA) -- Cyprus and Slovakia are on the same road towards united Europe and this is the "backbone" of the two countries' cooperation, Slovak Chief Negotiator for the EU, Jan Figel, said here today after a meeting with Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides.

    Figel, who is on a two-day visit to Cyprus, said Slovakia and Cyprus should open more space for intensive dialogue in economic cooperation matters as well as cultural exchanges and tourism.

    [04] Spokesman - UN report

    Nicosia, Jun 5 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government has described a report issued by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on the operation of the UN peace-keeping force in Cyprus as "objective and satisfactory", noting that it points the finger at Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Dentkash for the halt in the UN-led peace talks.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said UN Secretary General Kofi Annan notes in his six-monthly report that he invited President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to attend proximity talks in late January, the latter requested no date to be fixed for the talks and "it has not proved possible to resume talks" in the reporting period.
