In a message on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, President Clerides saluted "the signing of the Sharm-al-Sheikh Memorandum in September 99, for it constitutes a giant step forward in the journey towards peace".
"On our part, President Clerides added, we profess our readiness to contribute in any way feasible to peace and in bringing the people of the entire area closer together".
In a joint press conference given in London on November 25 the French President said that "we hope that at the Helsinki Summit it will be clarified that no state can oppose the candidacy of Cyprus and following the outcome of the discussions between Mr Clerides and Mr Denktash, we all hope that progress be mode towards the unification of the island".
Mr Kaklamanis was replying to a question by his Italian counterpart Mr Luciano Violante regarding the Greco-Turkish relations and the Cyprus issue. Mr Kaklamanis further stated that the Turkish Cypriot leader insists on his unacceptable demands for the recognition of his pseudo-state, a demand that violates all rules of international law.
Receiving Mr Vyrides' credentials, Mr Havel expressed his keen interest in a Cyprus settlement in a peaceful and just way on the basis of UN resolutions.
