    Cyprus FM expects no agreement today on EU counterstatement

    Nicosia, Sep 7 (CNA) -- Cyprus Foreign Minister George Iacovou has said he does not think there will be any agreement today at a European Union ambassadors' meeting on a counterstatement to Turkey's declaration that it does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus.

    Iacovou said another informal General Affairs EU Council is expected to take place on September 26 to discuss Turkey's negotiating framework and the implementation of a protocol extending EU-Turkey customs union to the ten new member states, including Cyprus.

    Invited to comment on press reports that the latest draft of the EU British Presidency is worse than previous ones, Iacovou said ''I am sure yesterday's draft will not be on the table today and will not be submitted today in the form it had yesterday.''
