    House adjourns debate on European Constitution after bomb threat

    Nicosia, Jun 30 (CNA) -- The Cyprus House of Representatives had to adjourn its two-day debate on the European Constitution after a telephone threat for a bomb explosion.

    He said the debate will continue at 1500 hours local today (1200 GMT). The MPs will be invited to vote in favour or against the European Constitution this evening.

    Cyprus satisfied with Turkey's negotiating framework

    Nicosia, Jun 30 (CNA) - The Cypriot government is satisfied with the draft negotiating framework for Turkey's European Union accession talks, agreed yesterday in Brussels, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today.

    Spokesman says Talat distancing himself from solution

    Nicosia, Jun 30 (CNA) - Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today that Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat was following ''a policy of detachment from a solution of the Cyprus problem,'' noting it was intriguing that Talat was asking for something in exchange of European Union financial aid.

    Commenting on a letter Talat sent to Luxembourg's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrysostomides expressed regret over the fact that, due to developments in Brussels, the Turkish Cypriots could lose EU financial aid, and called on the Turkish Cypriot side to focus on the actual interests of the Turkish Cypriots, as UN Undersecretary General Sir Kieran Prendergast has pointed out.

    In its resolution, the House ''declares that the United Kingdom has no sovereignty over the territory of the British Bases, even in the context of the Treaty of Establishment, but a commitment to merely use this territory for specific military purposes.''
