    President warns against untimely initiatives

    Nicosia, May 8 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos has warned that an untimely initiative to resume the UN-led peace talks could lead to another deadlock in the peace effort.

    The President said that a UN plan for a comprehensive settlement in Cyprus should be amended to fit in with recent developments, including the Republic's accession course to the European Union.

    Papadopoulos dismissed as unfounded claims by Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul that the EU and Cyprus are applying a trade embargo against the island's Turkish-occupied areas.

    He also pointed out that the myth on which Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash has based his divisive philosophy that Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots cannot live together has collapsed.

    ''What many of our interlocutors are concerned about, and we share these concerns, is the possibility of seeing hasty moves or early initiatives lead the peace effort for the resumption of negotiations to a new deadlock or a new undesirable outcome,'' the President said, replying to questions at the Cyprus Red Cross Society.

    He reiterated his readiness to return to the negotiating table and resume peace talks on the basis of the Anna plan, which he pointed out should be adjusted to meet the new circumstances and the latest developments on the island.

    President says missing persons' issue of primary importance

    Nicosia, May 8 (CNA) - President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos said today that the issue of missing persons and its solution on the basis of internationally safeguarded human rights was an issue of primary importance for the Cypriot government.

    Addressing a massive gathering at the Nicosia Airport checkpoint in Nicosia, in the context of the 19th Missing Persons' Love Marathon, Papadopoulos said the problem of missing persons was always a clearly humanitarian issue and as such it will remain.

    In his speech, read out by Minister of Foreign Affairs Georgios Iacovou, the President said it is in this approach that we insist on the position that the fate of every missing person must be determined. President Papadopoulos said that ''no one can accept that a missing person is dead on the basis of guesswork, unconfirmed information and above all unfounded evidence'', adding that as long as it is up to us, we will make every effort to obtain progress on the issue.

    Government preparing document for tourist organisations

    Nicosia, May 8 (CNA) - The Cypriot Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, in cooperation with the Law Office of the Republic, is preparing a document to be sent to all tourist organisations abroad, which will spell out the responsibilities of each individual crossing into the Turkish occupied areas and will state where the responsibilities the Republic of Cyprus stop, as it has no control over those areas.

    Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Yiorgos Lillikas told the press today that, after studying the document, foreign travel agents would have ''a full picture in the right direction''.
