    Cypriot ministers say white powder was not dangerous

    Nicosia, Jan 29 (CNA) Cypriot ministers assured here Wednesday that the white powder found in the correspondence of UN Secretary-Generals Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, contained nothing dangerous.

    Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment, Costas Themistocleous and Health Minister, Frixos Savvides, said the relevant government services implemented a fast detection system which proved that the powder did not contain any dangerous substances.

    First results show that there is no cause for concern, but to be absolutely certain more tests on the culture of the substance will be carried out and it looks as if they will give us the same results, that there is nothing to be worried about, Savvides said.

    He said the medical services of the Republic spoke with UNFICYP staff who came into contact with the powder and advised them on the procedure that was to be followed.

    Sides continue negotiations

    Nicosia, Jan 29 (CNA) -- The Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides, which met here for about one hour in the context of the UN-led peace talks, had before them today a document outlining the positions of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash on a UN peace plan.

    Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides and Denktash, accompanied by their respective aides, met in the presence of UN Secretary General's special adviser Alvaro de Soto, who returned earlier today from Turkey, where he met the country's political leadership.

    "The Greek Cypriot side has begun commenting on a document Denktash conveyed to it on Tuesday," a source close to the talks told CNA.

    Today's meeting took place at the Ledra Palace hotel in the UN controlled buffer zone, instead of the usual place within the UNPA (UN protected area) in the compound of the now defunct Nicosia international airport.
