    [01] Annan visit to Cyprus is possible, says Foreign Minister

    The Foreign Minister, Mr. Ioannis Kasoulides, stated that the UN Secretary- General, Mr. Kofi Annan, might be visiting Cyprus on 26 February, since it was already scheduled for him to travel to Greece and Turkey at the end of February. He noted, however, that the Foreign Ministry had no official report by the United Nations on that matter as yet. Speaking on his departure for France yesterday, at Larnaca airport, Mr. Kasoulides said that it was very likely that a new revised UN plan would be put forward, adding that he did not expect the UN to stir the equilibrium or the philosophy of the document. "I hope that they know clearly what our positions are, and I also hope that they will not do anything that would appear as appeasing only Mr. Denktash", he added. Asked to comment on a possible Greco-Turkish agreement on the issue of security, the Foreign Minister said that the special committee would decide, on Friday, whether or not to begin holding meetings between Greece and Turkey as of 17 February. "The Greek side must be ready to deal with seriousness the possibility of being faced with dilemmas, which we should handle in a responsible way, as we did in Copenhagen; and that, in order for the Greek side to avoid facing any consequences", he pointed out. Mr. Kasoulides expressed the view that it was unlikely for the Cyprus problem to be solved by 28 February, but he noted that the upcoming developments would be very significant for the efforts to reach a settlement. He specifically referred to possible catalytic effects on these efforts once the leader of Turkey's ruling Justice and Development, Mr. Tayyip Erdogan, assumed the premiership and managed to set the administration under his control, especially after the end of the Iraqi crisis. The Foreign Minister told reporters that he was flying to France to participate in a campaign organised by the French Prime Minister, with the participation of French Ministers and Ministers of the countries acceding to the EU, aimed at informing the French public opinion on EU enlargement and the ongoing debate on the Future of Europe.

    [02] Cyprus' income from EU more than its contribution to community budget

    The European Union has set Cyprus' contribution to the EU budget, as well as the subsidies that Cyprus will be receiving from various community funds and programmes. Based on what had been agreed during the accession negotiations and ratified by the Copenhagen European Council of last December 2002, the total income for Cyprus for the period 2004-2006 will surpass its total contributions to the community budget by 91 million euros. During the aforementioned period, Cyprus is due to receive 115.03 million euros for agriculture, 100.83 million euros for structural actions, and 47.65 million euros from other programmes and actions.
