    [01] Greek FM - Statements - Arrival

    Larnaca Jan 11 (CNA) -- Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou said Greece and Cyprus have all the prerequisites to help promote a solution of the protracted Cyprus question in the framework of UN decisions.

    He also said the conclusions of the European Union (EU) summit last month provide an opportunity to push for a settlement and Cyprus' accession to the Union.



    [02] Former bishop of Limassol - Criminal case

    Nicosia, Jan 11 (CNA) -- The Attorney-General's office lodged a criminal case against former Limassol Bishop Chrysanthos here Tuesday in connection with a case relating to attempts to secure 3,7 million US dollars from a New Zealander.

    The charges on the indictment are "conspiracy to commit fraud and attempt to obtain money under false pretences".

    [03] Britain - Cyprus - Press reports

    London Jan 11 (CNA) -- Britain has denied press reports that its Cyprus envoy has proposed that Greek Cypriots re-open some hotels in the Turkish occupied town of Varosha (on the eastern coast) and re-operate Varosha port, also under occupation since 1974.

    However, Britain has not ruled out the possibility of such an idea having been floated since the UN-led proximity talks last month in New York, which ended in mid-December.



    [04] Greece - Cyprus - Foreign Ministers - Press Conference

    Nicosia Jan 11 (CNA) -- The Cyprus question has become a European issue and the solution of the problem can be promoted through Europe, Cyprus and Greek Foreign Ministers Ioannis Kasoulides and George Papandreou respectively said here today.

    They also said the Cyprus question is part and parcel of Turkey's course towards European integration and added that EU decisions define the manner of Turkish Cypriot involvement in Cyprus' accession process.



    [05] Papandreou - Holger - Meeting

    Nicosia, Jan 11 (CNA) -- Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou and James Holger, Acting Special Representative and Chief of the UN Mission in Cyprus believe that rapprochement between Greece and Turkey will benefit Cyprus.

    Speaking after a meeting this evening, both also emphasised the significance of meetings between Greek and Turkish Cypriots which the UN has promoted at times.
