    Nicosia, Sep 6 (CNA) - Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today that no one could object to a school in Limassol for Turkish-speaking students and that it was not possible to impose terms regarding the operation of that school.

    Commenting on remarks by so-called prime minister in the Turkish occupied areas Ferdi Sabit Soyer that the school should operate under the same criteria as the Greek school in the occupied Karpass peninsula, Chrysostomides said the school operates on the basis of the respect for the right to education, maintaining the cultural traditions and within the framework of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights.

    Britain hopeful about consensus on counter-declaration

    Nicosia, Sep 6 (CNA) -- British High Commissioner here Peter Millett appeared hopeful that an EU ambassadors meeting tomorrow in Brussels will reach consensus on a counter-declaration in response to a unilateral declaration Turkey, made last month that it does not recognize one of its members, the Republic of Cyprus.

    ''I am reasonably confident that we can get a deal, we are very close to reaching an agreement on the counter-declaration. Our job now is to bridge the gaps between the many different views on the counter-declaration, ensure that the EU sticks to its commitments and that we reach our objective of starting the negotiations with Turkey on October 3,'' he said.
