    More tourists from Russia expected in Cyprus this year

    President Clerides: No encouraging results from the talks so far

    Nicosia, Mar 26 (CNA) -- There haven't been so far any encouraging results from the ongoing UN-led direct peace talks aiming at reaching a settlement to the Cyprus problem, Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides said here today.

    He added that whether the two sides in Cyprus will reach a settlement of the Cyprus problem prior to the island's accession to the EU depends on the influence that the international community will exert on the Turkish side, so that the latter would take its further steps within the framework of the UN resolutions on Cyprus.
