[01] Finance Minister speaks at LSE

Finance Minister Takis Klerides in a speech at the London School of Economics yesterday, analysed the most important issues in the recent history of Cyprus since independence, with the exception of the Turkish invasion.

He outlined the progress achieved so far in the accession negotiations and described the challenges and benefits that the EU accession course entails for Cyprus.

Moreover, he outlined the Government's strategy to tackle these challenges and evaluated the progress so far achieved.

He said the Government envisages the accession of the whole territory of the island to the EU and it undertakes all efforts for a just and viable solution to the problem within the framework of the UN resolutions on Cyprus.

He recalled that President Clerides has invited the Turkish Cypriots to nominate representatives as full and active members of the team in the accession negotiations with the EU, an invitation, which still remains on the table and has not been taken up.

He also pointed out that according to the conclusions of the Helsinki European Council, while a political settlement to the Cyprus problem will facilitate the accession of Cyprus to the European Union, it does not nevertheless constitute a precondition for accession.
