    [03] Cyprus' EU Chief negotiator - Washington - Speech

    Nicosia, Sep 10 (CNA) -- Cyprus' Chief negotiator for the country's accession into the European Union, George Vassiliou, said today that Cyprus' future accession into the EU "will greatly facilitate the reunification of the island as a federation" and "will give a feeling of security and stability to all Cypriots and particularly to Turkish Cypriots."

    Addressing a policy forum at the Western Policy Centre in Washington, on "EU enlargement: implications for Europe, Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean" Vassiliou referred to the efforts to find a settlement of the Cyprus problem, adding that no solution has been reached so far, "because we have been facing an intransigent Turkey, supporting the even more intransigent Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash."

    Vassiliou also referred to Denktash's refusal to accept UN Secretary General's Kofi Annan invitation conveyed by his Special Adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto to Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides and Denktash last week, as he concluded an eight-day visit here.

    The President has accepted the invitation and left today for New York for the talks on 12 September.

    Last year Denktash abandoned the negotiating table demanding recognition for his self-styled regime in Turkish occupied Cyprus before he returns to the UN-led peace talks.

    Vassiliou pointed out that "the answer as to whether a divided Cyprus can join the EU or not has already been given by the EU itself in its decision at the Helsinki Summit in December 1999" that "if no settlement has been reached by the completion of accession negotiations, the Council's decision on accession will be made without the above being a precondition."

    [04] Cyprus - British Bases - Exercise - Oman

    Limassol, Sep 10 (CNA) -- The British Bases in Cyprus will provide support to British Forces transiting to and from Oman within the framework of the military exercise "Saif Sareea II", Akrotiri British Bases' lieutenant colonel Neal McGregor Smith said here today, adding that this exercise is designed to demonstrate the United Kingdom's Joint Rapid Reaction Force.

    Speaking at a press conference, held in the southern coastal town of Limassol, Smith said that during the exercise, which will take place September 17 to October 31 2001, the British Bases in Cyprus would offer material and technical support to ships and aircrafts transiting to and from Oman.

    [05] Verheugen - Turkish FM - Cyprus

    Brussels, Sep 10 (CNA) -- The lack of political will on behalf of Turkey on Cyprus drastically reduces the possibility of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash's participation to the UN-led talks on Cyprus.

    According to European Commission sources, this was underlined today after a meeting EU Commissioner for Enlargement Gunter Verheugen held here today with Turkish Foreign Minister Ismail Cem, during which the two men discussed the Cyprus problem. CNA/NM/AAR/RM/2001
