    Benefits from peaceful meetings evident, says President

    Nicosia, May 14 (CNA) -- The benefits that have emerged from recent peaceful encounters between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots far outweigh the problems arising from presenting passports to the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime in occupied Cyprus, President Tassos Papadopoulos has said.

    The President also said that there are political expediencies in the decision by Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to ease restrictions on free movement to and from the island's occupied areas and he reiterated his readiness to participate immediately in substantive negotiations, under UN auspices, on the basis of a UN peace plan, the Kofi Annan proposal.

    Addressing the Annual General Meeting of the Employers and Industrialists Federation, Papadopoulos said that the government would work hard to ensure harmonization with the acquis communautaire and to see Cyprus join the Euro by 1 May 2006, if possible.
