    Spokesman - Northern Ireland peace process

    Nicosia, Oct 24 (CNA) -- The government believes that any move towards the implementation of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, in Northern Ireland, is "welcomed", spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today invited to comment on yesterday's announcement that the IRA has started decommissioning its weapons.

    "The government of Cyprus would be pleased if the stated intention to hand over weapons and move ahead with the provisions of this agreement are adhered to fully," Papapetrou said.|

    Spokesman - Turkish Cypriot leader - Threats

    Nicosia, Oct 24 (CNA) -- The government has condemned moves by the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to push Turkish Cypriots towards emigration and condemn them to the harsh economic realities his puppet regime in Turkish occupied Cyprus is facing.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said Denktash's threats to imprison Turkish Cypriots in possession of passports issued by the Republic of Cyprus are "beyond description" and said instead the Turkish Cypriot leader should be taking measures to improve the dire economic situation in occupied Cyprus.|

    Spokesman - EU statement

    Nicosia, Oct 24 (CNA) -- The government has described as "extremely positive and important" a European Union statement on the UN-led Cyprus peace process, outlining the framework of the solution of the protracted Cyprus question.

    "The government considers the statement by the Belgian EU presidency extremely important and positive in that it adopts a statement by the UN Security Council in late September which considers the Turkish side responsible for not responding to an invitation to peace talks by the UN Secretary General," Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today.|

    [05] Spokesman - US envoy - Peace effort

    Nicosia, Oct 24 (CNA) -- The government appeared extremely cautious today with regard to efforts underway to resume the stalled peace talks, in the light of meetings US State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus Thomas Weston had in Turkey.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said today all indications are that the Turkish side insists on its intransigent positions and has not given its consent to the resumption of talks, something that would render anybody "pessimistic."| CNA/MM/RM/2001

    [06] Spokesman - EU Commission President

    Nicosia, Oct 24 (CNA) -- Tomorrow's state visit to Cyprus by European Commission President Romano Prodi and Enlargement Commissioner Gunter Verheugen is "very important," Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today.

    "I have no doubt that this visit will give a new impetus to our accession effort. High level consultations will review the situation and determine ways to make headway within the defined timetable to allow us to close more chapters in our negotiations with the EU," he said.| CNA/MM/RM/2001

    US Special Coordinator - Arrival

    Larnaca, Oct 24 (CNA) -- US State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus Thomas Weston arrived here tonight in a bid to help reinvigorate the UN Secretary General's good offices mission.

    Weston, in a brief statement on arrival, extended thanks to Cyprus for the "outstanding" support and cooperation the US has received from the Republic in all areas in efforts to combat international terrorism.

    Expressing "great pleasure to be back," he said he looks forward to his meetings over the next couple of days. He is to be received by President Glafcos Clerides and meet Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash.

    "I have already been in Athens and Ankara in pursuit of efforts to reinvigorate the good offices mission of the Secretary General, as called for by the Security Council on September 26," Weston told journalists.

    The Council expressed "disappointment for the unjustified decision of the Turkish side" to decline an invitation by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to talks to resume the search for a comprehensive settlement.

    On a different note, Weston expressed his personal appreciation and that of the US and its people for the "outstanding cooperation and support that we have received from Cyprus in all areas in response to the September 11 events in New York and Washington as well as in our efforts to combat global terrorism."

    Cyprus has aligned itself with the US-led coalition of countries fighting international terrorism and has made its air space available to US aircraft in the war against terrorism. CNA/MAN/MM/RM/2001

    EU Commission President - Visit - Expectations

    Brussels, Oct 24 (CNA) -- Romani Prodi, European Commission President, is expected to tell his Cypriot interlocutors tomorrow and Friday that Cyprus is set to conclude its accession negotiations with the EU within 2002, reliable sources have told CNA.

    Prodi, who arrives in Cyprus Thursday accompanied by EU Enlargement Commissioner Gunter Verheugen, will recall at the same time the EU decision that a political settlement of the Cyprus question would facilitate accession but it is not a precondition for it.|
