    [01] Cyprus - Kuwait - Parliament

    Nicosia, Sep 28 (CNA) -- Cyprus is seeking help from Kuwait, a member of the Islamic Conference, to avert any attempt for recognition by Moslem nations of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime in the Republic's Turkish- occupied areas.

    Kuwaiti parliamentarians, visiting the island, have said that the solution of the Cyprus question should be based on UN decisions and assured that their country does not accept foreign occupation and the results such a situation creates.

    The Kuwaiti delegation, led by the president of the Kuwait-Cyprus Parliamentary Friendship Group Mubarak al-Duwaila, was briefed on developments in the Cyprus peace process and the country's accession course to the European Union by Nicos Anastasiades, president of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

    [04] Cyprus Foreign Minister - Afghanistan - Statement

    Nicosia, Sep 28 (CNA) -- Cyprus has no wish to get entangled in the internal affairs of Afghanistan, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides stressed here today, adding that press reports about a meeting next week on the island of Afghan factions are unfounded.

    "Cyprus does not wish to host on its soil any attempt aiming at involvement in the internal civil dispute in Afghanistan and take the side of any of the factions," the minister said after today's meeting of the National Council, the top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus question.

    Kasoulides dismissed press reports that Cyprus will become a centre where an Afghan government in exile will be set up. "This is simply not true," he underlined.

    Agency reports quoted former Afghan foreign minister Homayun Jarir as saying that he plans to visit Cyprus next week in a bid to convene and group Afghan factions in a coalition government against the ruling Taliban. Jarir was quoted as saying an effort was underway to set up a broad-based government to help the US and the international community.
