    Durban, Nov 15 (CNA) -- Commonwealth heads of government have strongly endorsed UN efforts to resume comprehensive negotiations on Cyprus without preconditions and with a view to reach a settlement, according to a draft extract in their final communique, expected to be adopted later today.

    They also expressed their appreciation of the willingness of the government of the Republic of Cyprus to respond positively to an invitation to negotiations on the basis of UN Security Council resolution 1250 and said the Turkish Cypriot demand for recognition of a separate state in the occupied part of Cyprus is unacceptable.
