    FM: decision on Cyprus' EU accession should go ahead

    by Maria Koniotou

    Copenhagen, Jun 3 (CNA) -- Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has expressed the conviction that Cyprus will be among the countries to join the European Union in the next wave of enlargement and said the island's accession course should not be affected either by a possible change in the positions of the Turkish side or by any momentum in the UN-led peace talks.

    Kasoulides said that June remains a target-date for the Cyprus issue and that if the UN-led direct talks between President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash do not bear fruit by the end of this month, negotiations should not stop.

    Danish MP calls on Ankara to take decisions on Cyprus

    by Maria Koniotou

    Copenhagen, Jun 3 (CNA) -- The president of the Danish parliamentary committee dealing with European Union affairs has called on Ankara to make up its mind with regard to Cyprus' division, if it is serious about joining the Union.

    Committee president Claus Larsen-Jensen said that Denmark would like Cyprus to be part of the first wave of enlargement and recalled the EU decision that a political settlement is not a precondition for Cyprus' accession.

    He expressed hope that Ankara will understand that Cyprus' accession would also benefit Turkey itself.

    Speaking after a 45-minute long meeting with President Glafcos Clerides, Jensen said "what is very important for us during the Danish presidency (July-December) is what is going to be the solution of the Cyprus question."

    Danish Premier urges parties in Cyprus to find solution

    by Maria Koniotou Copenhagen, Jun 3 (CNA) - Danish Premier Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the EU would be reluctant to accept unsolved border problems within the Union and urged the parties in Cyprus to find a solution as soon as possible to the protracted Cyprus problem, expressing satisfaction that "this is exactly the attitude of the Greek Cypriot side".

    Rasmussen, who met here today with Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides, also said that Denmark, which takes over the EU rotating presidency as of July 1, aims to conclude negotiations with up to 10 candidate countries at the Copenhagen Summit in December and that the timetable for enlargement will be implemented.

    He also expressed support to the UN Secretary General's efforts for a solution in Cyprus and noted that although the solution is not a precondition for Cyprus' EU accession, "it would be an advantage", and "we have to take all relevant factors into consideration".

    President Clerides said that "we do want to find a solution of the Cyprus problem as soon as possible" and noted he saw no reason why the Helsinki decision on Cyprus should not be implemented.

    UN chief recommends extending UNFICYP mandate for six months

    United Nations, Jun 3 (CNA) - UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has recommended that the Security Council extends the mandate of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) for a further six months, as he considers its presence on the island "essential to the maintenance of the ceasefire between the two sides".

    In his report on UNFICYP to the Security Council, covering the period from 28 November 2001 to 29 May 2002, the UN chief makes a brief reference to direct talks between President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, launched in January with a view to solve the problem of Cyprus, divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
