    [01] President Clerides - UN envoy

    Nicosia, Sep 5 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides had a 45-minute meeting here this morning with UN Secretary-General's Special Adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto.

    The UN envoy declined to make any statement to the press after the Presidential Palace meeting. He rushed to cross to the Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus to meet Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash.

    [02] President Clerides - Greek Foreign Minister

    Nicosia, Sep 5 (CNA) -- Greece remains "determined and calm" as far as Cyprus' future is concerned, irrespective of developments, the country's Foreign Minister George Papandreou said here today, adding that the European Union accession course provides a new momentum which can contribute towards a political settlement in Cyprus.

    "The Republic's accession course is on a good track," the minister said, after a meeting with President Glafcos Clerides and added that he discussed recent developments in Cyprus and EU matters.

    [03] Cyprus talks - Resumption - 12 September

    Nicosia, Sep 5 (CNA) -- Peace talks on Cyprus, under UN auspices, are to resume in New York on September 12, the UN Secretary General's Special Adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto announced here today, at the conclusion of his eight-day visit to the island.

    Speaking at a press conference, he told a packed room at the Ledra Palace hotel, in the UN buffer zone, that on behalf of the Secretary-General, he had conveyed to "HE Mr Glafkos Clerides, the Greek Cypriot leader and HE Mr Rauf Denktash, the Turkish Cypriot leader, an invitation to resume the search for a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem, under the Secretary-General's auspices."

    Mr de Soto said it was the hope of the UN that "a new and re-invigorated phase of the Secretary-General/s good offices will begin with separate meetings of the Secretary-General with the two leaders on 12 September 2001, in New York."

    He noted that no date had been foreseen for adjournment of the talks "that we hope will begin" on 12 September.

    "What we hope is that in the days following the meeting with the Secretary- General, the two leaders would hold separate working meetings with me, as they have done in the past, on the substantive issues that must be addresssed as part of a comprehensive settlement."

    The Peruvian diplomat said the Secretary-General was "widely supported" in his hope to see "an intense period of work in the time ahead as part of a continuous process."

    The Secretary-General, he added, "very much wants" to be in a position to report progress on the issues of substance before the end of this year. "This is without prejudice to the guiding principle that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed," he concluded his opening statement.

    UN-led proximity talks were interrupted last year when Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, backed by Ankara, withdrew from the peace process, demanding recognition of his self-styled regime in Turkish occupied Cyprus.
