    [01] Cyprus - Former CIA chief - Allegations - Reaction

    Nicosia, Sep 18 (CNA) -- The Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus Afxentis Afxentiou refuted today as "totally unsubstantiated and unacceptable" allegations by the former CIA chief James Woolsey who, talking about Osama bin Laden's finances, said that Cyprus is the worst tax haven and should not be allowed to join the European Union until it hands over information on bin Laden's financial activities.

    A US embassy spokesman here told CNA today that Woolsey's personal views do not reflect the policies of the US government.

    Nicosia, Sep 18 (CNA) -- US Ambassador to Cyprus Donald Bandler said today that Cyprus and the US share the common determination to face up to the challegens the scourge of terrorism poses, stressing that the US will lead a campaign against violence, fanaticism and terrorism and not against Islam.

    Speaking after a "long and good" meeting with President Glafcos Clerides, Bandler said that he also discussed the Cyprus question with the President. CNA/NMA/AAR/MM/2001


    [03] Spokesman - Terrorism - Cyprus

    Nicosia, Sep 18 (CNA) -- Administering justice and eliminating terrorism should be the reaction to the recent terrorist attacks in the US, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today, pointing out that Nicosia believes that terrorism must be dealt with in a general manner, including the search for and the uprooting of the causes that breed terrorism.

    "The reaction to the terrorist attacks in the US should be calm and revenge should not be sought", Papapetrou said, adding that justice must be administered and terrorism eradicated. CNA/RM/AAR/MM/2001


    [04] President Clerides - New British High Commissioner

    Nicosia, Sep 18 (CNA) --Britain continues to support UN efforts for a just and comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem and is "deeply disappointed" by the refusal of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to resume the talks on the Cyprus question, new British High Commissioner to Cyprus Lyn Parker said here today, presenting his credentials to President Glafcos Clerides, adding that Cyprus has made "impressive progress" in its course towards EU membership.

    Receiving the credentials, President Clerides expressed the belief that Cyprus will continue to rely with confidence on Britain's valuable support to the steady course towards the EU and referring to the Cyprus problem he said that Britain, as a guarantor power, would continue to use its influence to bring about a peaceful reunification of the island.
