  • [01] Cyprus wants a substantive dialogue
  • [02] Now is the time to solve Cyprus problem
  • [03] Agreement on avoidance of double taxation

    [01]

    The Cyprus government genuinely wants a substantive dialogue aimed at finding a solution to the Cyprus problem and does not want to get involved in a time-wasting procedure which leads nowhere and consolidates the faits accomplis.

    Government spokesman Michalis Papapetrou expressed the hope that Mr Denktash would attend "in a fresh spirit" having already decided it is time to settle the Cyprus problem on the basis of a federation.

    He added that the government believes that remarks by the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan that one should not have unrealistic expectations from next month's talks display "seriousness and realism."

    He said moreover that neither Greece nor Cyprus consider the mere start of proximity talks as sufficient justification to warrant a decision by the European Union to give Turkey the status of an EU candidate country.

    [02]

    Greece's Government Spokesman Dimitris Reppas said yesterday that now is time to resolve the Cyprus problem.

    He added that "the division of Cyprus is the shame of Europe" and that a solution to the Cyprus problem should be sought within the context of UN resolutions, Athens News Agency reported.

    He said the Cyprus proximity talks, scheduled to be held in New York on December 3, should be substantive as determined by the UN and as confirmed by the UN Secretary-General.

    [03]

    Ratification papers were exchanged in Brussels yesterday regarding an agreement for the avoidance of double taxation between Cyprus and Belgium.

    The agreement comes into force on 8 December 1999.
