    [01] Cyprus problem - Live discussion

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) - Foreign envoys involved in efforts for a settlement in Cyprus have said that conditions prevailing today offer a historic opportunity to reach a solution on the island, in messages screened last night during a live two-hour TV programme.

    The foreign officials described improved relations between Greece and Turkey as well as the European Union's decision taken in Helsinki last December to give Turkey a candidate status as important.

    [02] UN Chief - UNFICYP - Report

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) - UN-Secretary General Kofi Annan has recommended to the Security Council the extention of the UN Peace-keeping Force in Cyprus(UNFICYP) mandate for another six months, until December 2000, as it remains indespensable for the maintainance of the cease-fire.

    In his report on UNFICYP operations for the period November 30th 1999 to 31st May 2000, Annan notes two positive developments: The increase in contacts between Greek and Turkish Cypriots and the decision by the illegal authorities in the areas of Cyprus occupied by Turkey since 1974 to lift unnecessarily onerous measures affecting visits to the Greek Cypriots and Maronites living there.

    [04] Former UN envoy - Cyprus problem

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) --Former UN top envoy in Cyprus, Gustave Feissel, believes that unless Greece and Turkey get active engaged in efforts to find a settlement in Cyprus, a solution would be nearly impossible to achieve, and cited the case of the Northern Ireland peace process as an example to be followed in Cyprus too.

    He backed increased contact between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities, stressing that a settlement would serve the interests of both as well as those of Athens and Ankara.

    [06] Spokesman - Cyprus solution - Envoys

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) -- Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said the forthcoming visits by foreign envoys to Cyprus will help clarify the process that will be adopted in the third round of UN-led Cyprus peace talks, due to start in Geneva on 5 July, with a view to upgrade the dialogue.

    Papapetrou said the government considers that certain elements from a UN set of ideas and other documents could be useful and should be applied in the search for peace.

    [07] Spokesman - UN report

    Nicosia, Jun 1 (CNA) -- The government is not pleased with the view adopted by the UN Secretary General that he does not intend to appoint a third member to a committee dealing with the issue of missing persons until the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides show genuine commitment to reaching a consensus.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said such a point of view takes no account of the agreement on the issue of missing persons reached between President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash.
