    Cyprus says French points for EU counterstatement positive

    Nicosia, Sep 12 (CNA) -- Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides confirmed today that the EU British Presidency and France held consultations on the content of a counterstatement to be issued by the EU as a response to Turkey's declaration of not recognising the Republic of Cyprus, noting that the French government immediately briefed the Republic of Cyprus on these consultations.

    ''We have been briefed on the points on which France has insisted,'' he said, adding that Cyprus thinks that these are positive.
