    [01] Iacovou: No developments until next Turkish Cypriot " elections"

    The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr George Iacovou, said that various countries keep reiterating that as long as Mr Denktash is the interlocutor of the Turkish Cypriot side for a solution to the Cyprus problem, then things are difficult and everybody refers to the period following the so called " elections" in the Turkish Cypriot community. Mr Iacovou was speaking to the press after a meeting he had yesterday with two American Congressmen, currently on a visit to Cyprus. Moreover, the Foreign Minister pointed out that if the so-called "opposition" in the Turkish Cypriot community wins the " elections", then a new interlocutor will replace Mr Denktash. Diplomatic representatives of almost all countries believe that parties which support Mr Denktash will lose the "elections", Mr Iacovou added. Asked to comment on the content of a letter sent to him by his American counterpart, Mr Iacovou said that he could neither confirm nor deny the content of this letter. What I would like to underline is the US continuing interest in a solution to the Cyprus problem before May 1st 2004, so that a united Cyprus can join the EU, Mr Iacovou said adding that this position was expressed to him by the US Secretary of State, Mr Colin Powell during their meeting this year in Washington.

    [02] President Papadopoulos receives Mayor of Morphou

    The President of the Republic, Mr Tassos Papadopoulos, received yesterday the Mayor of Morphou, Mr Charalambos Pittas, and the Municipal Council, who were accompanied by three MPs. During the meeting Mr Pittas briefed President Papadopoulos on the content of a resolution, which was approved by the Morphou Municipal Council on the 29th anniversary of the occupation of the town by the Turkish troops, and was handed to the embassies of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. In a statement after the meeting Morphou Mayor Charalambos Pittas stressed that Morphou residents are determined to continue their struggle until final vindication. The Mayor of Morphou and the Municipal Council were also received by the President of the House of Representatives, Mr Demetris Christofias.
