    Kyrenia ship: The legend goes on

    by Maria Koniotou

    Nicosia, Mar 15 (CNA) -- The maritime history of Cyprus will come to life again next month, when a full-size replica of an ancient seafarer sets sail from this eastern Mediterranean island carrying copper to Greece, to be used in making the bronze medals for the Athens Olympic Games in August.

    Cyprus has always been a seafaring nation during its 9,000 year old history and its geographical location, at the crossroads of three continents, no doubt has contributed to that.

    Top UN envoy believes enlarged talks ''unavoidable''

    Nicosia, Mar 15 (CNA) -- Alvaro de Soto, UN Secretary General's special advisor on Cyprus, believes that enlarged talks with the participation of Greece and Turkey, in addition to the current participants of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides, are inevitable to help move the peace process forward.

    Speaking after his first separate meeting with Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos, following three weeks of direct talks with Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, de Soto said he hoped that this procedure would help solve pending issues the two leaders are discussing.

    The UN envoy said Sir Kieran Prendergast, UN Under Secretary for Political Affairs, arrives on the island tomorrow but his programme of work has not actually been discussed.
