    Cyprus says US tolerant of illegal visit

    Nicosia, May 30 (CNA) -- Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today that the government considered the presence of US Ambassador to Cyprus Michael Klosson in the island's Turkish occupied areas, to welcome a group of US congressmen on an illegal visit there, as ''a tolerance and acceptance of the illegality.''

    The Spokesman said that the US congressmen, who landed at an illegal airport in the Turkish occupied areas today, would be allowed to cross over into the government-controlled areas of the Republic, if they asked for it, adding at the same time that it would not be diplomatically correct of them to attempt to.

    AHI President opposes US Congressmen's visit to northern Cyprus

    Nicosia, May 30 (CNA) -- American Hellenic Institute (AHI) President Gene Rossides reiterated here Monday the Institute's strong opposition against the visit of three US Congressmen to the areas occupied by Turkish troops since 1974, using an airport declared illegal port of entry by the Cyprus government.

    Rossides noted that AHI had sent a letter to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice underlining the illegality of such a move and an action of alert to its members, stressing that ''through that effort a number of Congressmen who have been scheduled to go on that trip dropped off and their number was reduced to just three, and we are very pleased with that result.''

    Rossides, who was speaking to the press after a meeting an high ranking delegation had with Cyprus House President Demetris Christofias, with whom they discussed the Cyprus issue, underlined that ''for the US the best situation in Cyprus would be a free, united Cyprus under normal democratic law as the first President Bush stated.''
