    Cyprus - Tourism

    Nicosia, Oct 18 (CNA) -- The Cyprus cabinet has decided to allocate four million pounds to the tourist industry for a two-pronged plan to minimise any adverse fallout from the continuing war against terror, Commerce, Industry and Tourism Minister Nicos Rolandis has said, adding that the proposed plan includes moves during the global crisis as well as after the crisis.

    Rolandis said there will be an intensified advertising campaign, cultural events during wintertime, more visits to Cyprus by tour operators and foreign journalists and a possible tour of various capitals by a high ranking delegation to eliminate any doubt as to the safety of Cyprus as a tourist destination.

    Famagusta mayor - Pope John Paul II

    Nicosia, Oct 18 (CNA) -- The Pope is concerned and distressed with the continuing division and occupation of Cyprus and has often spoken out for the need to find a just solution to the protracted Cyprus question.

    Such a solution should be within a European context, the Pope believes and points out that the current status quo cannot be maintained for ever, while expressing hope that peace talks are inspired by a sincere desire to come to a successful conclusion.

    "You may rest assured that His Holiness shares the concern and the distress of all those who suffer from this painful situation," of division, the Pope said in a reply letter to the Mayor of the Turkish occupied town of Famagusta, on the eastern coast, signed by his Secretary for Relations with states Jean-Louis Tauran.

    [04] Spokesman - UN - US - Britain - Cyprus question

    Nicosia, Oct 18 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government believes that the policy of appeasing the Turkish Cypriot leader does not have a positive effect on Rauf Denktash neither does it bring about the anticipated results, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today, stressing that the basis of the UN-led negotiations is "not negotiable" as far as the government is concerned.

    His comments come as efforts by the UN, the US and the British Cyprus envoys to revive the stalled peace talks are being stepped up with a visit here next week by US State Department Coordinator Thomas Weston and a meeting in New York in early November between President Glafcos Clerides and Kofi Annan and the British representative Lord David Hannay.|
