[01] President Clerides leaves today

Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides leaves today for Switzerland to attend a fifth round of UN-led talks for a settlement on the island scheduled to begin in Geneva tomorrow.

At a meeting with the UN Secretary-General's Special Adviser for Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, on Friday 27 October, President Clerides stressed that "the basis and the framework for a solution exists, namely the UN Security Council resolutions".

[02] Double taxation avoidance agreement signed

A new agreement for the avoidance of double taxation between Cyprus and Bulgaria was signed yesterday between the Finance Ministers of the two countries.

Speaking after the signing ceremony, Cyprus' Finance Minister, Takis Klerides, said that this new agreement was drawn up because four months ago the Bulgarian Parliament abolished the previous double taxation agreement.

He added that as far as Cyprus is concerned it comes into effect immediately, and is expected to be approved soon by the Bulgarian parliament so that it can start being applied in the country in January 2001.

[03] Cyprus' ambassador presents credentials to Costa Rica

Cyprus' Ambassador to Mexico, Mr. Antonis Toumazis, on 26 October presented his credentials to the President of Costa Rica, Mr. Miguel Angel Rodriguez Echeverria.

At a meeting afterwards President Rodriguez reaffirmed his country's firm stand on a solution to the Cyprus problem based on UN resolutions. He also stressed that Costa Rica is interested in developing relations with Cyprus in all fields and expressed particular interest in the progress of Cyprus' negotiations for entry into the European Union.
