    Denktash is in strategic dilemma, says EU Commissioner

    Brussels, Mar 21 (CNA) -- EU Commissioner responsible for enlargement Gunter Verheugen has stated that Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash will be a loser if he does not change his position on the Cyprus problem, adding that Denktash knows it very well.

    In an interview published yesterday in the Dutch newspaper "De Volkskrant", Verheugen said Denktash is certainly not a "satellite" of Turkey and it is not enough for Ankara to press a button to get things moving, but Cyprus' northern part depends wholly on Turkey and Ankara holds the key to a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Nicosia, Mar 21 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides has said that "any effort by Turkey towards the creation of two states in Cyprus shall be resisted" by the Greek Cypriot side "with full vigour and determination."

    Clerides hopes direct talks will signal start of prolific process

    Nicosia, Mar 21 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides has expressed hope that the UN-led direct talks between the leaders of the two communities of the island, which began last January in Nicosia "will signal the start of a prolific process by which real progress is made."

    Receiving today the credentials of the Republic of Korea's new Ambassador to Cyprus Han Tae Kyu, who is based in Athens, President Clerides pointed out that the Greek Cypriot community's "willingness to resolve the Cyprus problem has not thus far been met with the analogous response by the Turkish Cypriot leadership, which continues to envisage a solution outside the framework of UN resolutions."
