    Australia's Cyprus envoy: Denktash paper ''unacceptable''

    by Maria Myles

    Nicosia, Mar 1 (CNA) -- Jim Short, Australia's Cyprus envoy, has said that time is running out in the race to meet the deadlines set out by the UN on a political settlement and stresses that tough and substantive negotiations have to take place in the weeks ahead if a solution is to be found by May 1 when Cyprus joins the European Union.

    In an interview with CNA, after concluding his visit here, Short said a paper Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash tabled last week at the talks is ''clearly unacceptable'' and pointed out that it would be inconceivable to use that document as a basis for negotiation.

    He believes that there has been a fundamental change in approach in Ankara with regard to the question of Cyprus and thinks that neither Greece nor Turkey are too keen on actually getting involved in the talks, which resumed on February 19 under UN Secretary General's special adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto.

    ''I came away from Ankara with a very positive impression compared with my previous visit about a year ago, there has been a fundamental change in approach and feeling in Turkey and I was very encouraged by that,'' Short said after his recent tour of Athens, Ankara and Nicosia as well as Washington and New York.
