    [01] "President Papadopoulos was constructive at the UN talks", says UK Minister

    "President Papadopoulos has taken a constructive approach towards the UN process", the British Minister for Europe, Mr Denis MacShane, said last Monday in response to a question by Labour MP, Mr Andrew Dismore, before the House of Commons. Mr MacShane added that at the meeting in The Hague, on 10-11 March, the Cyprus President was prepared to put the UN solution plan to a referendum, as the UN Secretary-General had requested.

    [02] Government condemns bomb incident against US embassy

    The Government Spokesman, Mr Kypros Chrysostomides, made the following written statement last Monday: "The Government condemns yesterday's attempt by a twenty-year-old Cypriot citizen to cause damage to the US embassy by using a bottle that contained a flammable substance. It is stressed that such actions neither promote the interest of the country nor respond to the demands of the European nature of our country or civilisation. The citizens are called to refrain from such actions that expose us abroad. At the same time, the Government would like to praise the immediate and effective intervention of the Cyprus police, which led to the arrest of one suspect for the incident."

    [03] Hadjidemetriou accepts President's proposal for Chief EU Negotiator post

    The former Member of Parliament, Mr Takis Hadjidemetriou, accepted a proposal, made last Monday by the President of the Republic, Mr Tassos Papadopoulos, to be appointed to the post of Head of the Negotiating Team for the Accession of Cyprus to the European Union. The President's proposal will be placed before the Council of Ministers tomorrow, 3 April, for approval.

    [04] US MP condemns arrests of T/C politicians in occupied areas

    The Democratic MP Mr Robert Andrews, of New Jersey, condemned the recent arrests of the Turkish Cypriot politician, Mr Izzet Izcan, and five trade unionists by the illegal regime in the Turkish-occupied areas of Cyprus. In his intervention before the US House of Representatives, last week, Mr Andrews noted, "Mr Denktash has already harmed the people he is supposed to represent by denying them the opportunity to unite with the Greek-Cypriot neighbors and join the European Union in April, and it is absolutely detestable to see him silencing the will of his citizens once again." The US parliamentarian called on his colleagues to join him in condemning these illegal acts of the occupation regime and to continue offering their support to the people of Cyprus. He further called on the United Nations to "persevere in their efforts to bring about a fair and agreeable resolution to the longstanding division of the Republic of Cyprus." The illegal arrests were made after Mr Izcan's party, the United Cyprus Party, planned to hold its own vote - following Mr Denktash's refusal in The Hague to allow a referendum vote on the UN solution plan - to demonstrate the desire of Turkish Cypriots for a resolution of the Cyprus problem.

    [05] New Cyprus High Commissioner to Seychelles

    The Cyprus High Commissioner to Nairobi, Mr Constandinos Eliades, presented his credentials recently to the President of Seychelles, Mr Frank Albert Rene, as the new High Commissioner of the Republic of Cyprus to that country. Mr Eliades briefed President Rene on the latest developments regarding the Cyprus problem, especially in light of the collapse of the intensive UN-peace efforts in The Hague due to Turkish intransigence. The President of Seychelles expressed his hope for a quick and just settlement of the Cyprus issue, stressing that Cyprus could always count on Seychelles for support.
