    [01] EU Commissioner - Enlargement

    Nicosia, June 24 (CNA) -- European Union Commissioner in charge of enlargement Gunter Ferheugen has said the approval of institutional changes during the French Presidency of the EU will indicate the time of the accession of candidate countries.

    Ferheugen who was speaking in Brussels during a joint meeting of the Committee of Agriculture, Rural Development and Food of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) and the European Parliament also described negotiations with the candidate countries, especially the Luxembourg group, which include Cyprus, as the greatest effort for cooperation ever made by European countries.

    [02] Britain - Report - Illicit trade of archaeological treasures

    London, Jun 24 (CNA) -- The story of the looting of Panayia Kanakaria mosaics by the Turkish occupation regime in the northern part of Cyprus is highlighted as one of many examples of illegal trade of archaeological and cultural treasures in a report published by the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, part of the Cambridge University.

    The report entitled "Stealing History: The illicit trade in Cultural material" and written by three experts, Neil Brodie, Jenny Doole and Peter Watson, reveals the illicit exploitation of the world's cultural treasures and stresses that modern-day looting is greater in scale than illegal trade carried out in the past.

    [03] Britain - EU Enlargement

    London, Jun 24 (CNA) -- European Union enlargement will be kept within the framework agreed upon, a British Foreign Office spokesman said last night, noting that Cyprus will be among the first to enter the EU as its economy is well ahead that of other candidate countries.

    The spokesman was commenting on reports after the European Council meeting in Portugal according to which the 15 members will not be able to reach agreement on structural changes within the EU by the end of this year and therefore the entry negotiation for the six will be delayed.
