    Clerides: The most crucial period for Cyprus since 1974

    Nicosia, Jul 8 (CNA) -- President Glafcos Clerides has described this period as the most crucial for Cyprus since the start of efforts to secure a negotiated settlement to the division of the island since the Turkish invasion in 1974.

    In his address to the first world symposium of Cypriot academia, the President said there is "no reason to be optimistic" at this stage of the ongoing direct talks because no progress has been achieved as a result of the intransigent positions of the Turkish side. He also said that European Union membership for Cyprus is expected to be concluded successfully at the end of the year.

    The President called on Cypriot university professors to play an even more effective role in the global effort to inform world public opinion about the situation in Cyprus.

    "Our course towards Europe is in its final stages and at the same time we are engaged in negotiations in an attempt to solve the Cyprus question prior to accession," the President told some 100 professors who live and work in 11 countries.

    Casini says foundations for Cyprus' EU accession have been laid

    Nicosia, Jul 8 (CNA) - The foundations have been laid for Cyprus' accession to the EU, President of the Chamber of Deputies of Italy Pier Ferdinando Casini stressed here today, adding that the lack of a solution to the Cyprus problem was no reason for Cyprus not entering the EU.

    Speaking through an interpreter after a meeting with President of the House of Representatives Demetris Christofias, Casini said that "the papers" for signing Cyprus' accession to the EU are ready, as the island has concluded its negotiations with the EU, satisfying all parameters set by the Union.

    "The solution of the Cyprus problem is an issue that interests the EU very much" Casini said, adding that "Europe needs Cyprus, and Italy wants Cyprus within the EU".
