    US will work closely with new Turkish government for Cyprus solution

    By Demitris Apokis

    Washington, Nov 5 (CNA) -- Washington will work closely with the new Turkish government for the country's political and economic reforms as well as on reaching a Cyprus settlement, US State Department's spokesman Richard Boucher has said.

    Congratulating the Justice and Development Party on its electoral success, Boucher noted that the parties represented in the new Turkish parliament reflect the aspirations for the Turkish people for continued progress on the path towards European Union membership and for the implementation of political and economic reforms.

    ''We will work with the government on these issues, as well as on reaching a settlement in Cyprus,'' the State Depratment spokesman said.

    By Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Nov 5 (CNA) -- The US activity in the process to reach a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem is happening at a ''quickening pace,'' State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus, Thomas Weston, has said.

    Speaking after meeting yesterday UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Weston said that ''there is an urgency to this matter which is recognised and I think it is reflected in the activity of the United States both on the island and in New York.''

    Papandreou pledges Greeces unwavering support

    Nicosia, Nov 5 (CNA) -- Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou has pledged that Greece will support Cyprus even in "the most extreme" case Nicosia rejects the proposal for a Cyprus settlement, expected to be submitted by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.

    Papandreou told the Greek Television (NET) last night that "in the most extreme case if Cyprus rejects the Annan proposal then Athens will support Cyprus and together we will fight until the end for Cyprus accession to the European Union (EU) in December.

    The Greek FM said he did not believe, however, that Nicosia would reject the plan because Nicosia would rather negotiate it. Nicosia will say 'lets sit down and discuss' (the plan) and during the negotiations which will follow we will secure improvements.

    Papandreou said if there is an agreement for a Cyprus settlement, then we must all support the agreement and the solution which will ensue so that Cyprus will become a model for Greco-Turkish cooperation and perhaps friendship.
