    Britain: Property issues to be solved through a settlement

    by Kyriakos Tsioupras

    London, Jun 9 (CNA) -- Britain believes that issues concerning property already purchased in Cyprus' Turkish occupied territory can be resolved only through a comprehensive settlement in Cyprus, British Minister for Trade, Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean has said.

    Symons welcomed the easing of restrictions on free movement across the divide underlining that she does not think that that is any substitute for a comprehensive settlement on the basis of a UN peace plan.

    Spokesman welcomes Weston's statements

    Nicosia, Jun 9 (CNA) - The Cypriot government has welcomed the US position, as it was expressed by the State Department's Special Coordinator for Cyprus Thomas Westin in an interview with Cypriot daily ''Simerini'' newspaper, that there is no chance of recognising the Turkish occupation regime on the island.

    Commenting on the US position expressed by both Weston and US Ambassador to Cyprus Michael Klosson that substantive changes could not be made on the solution plan put forward by UN chief Kofi Annan, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides said ''the Annan plan is there for negotiations and in the context of negotiations we will see how we proceed to solve the Cyprus problem''.

    He reiterated the readiness of the Greek Cypriot side to resume substantive talks immediately on the basis of the Annan plan.

    Chrisostomides said Weston's statements reiterate the US position that there is no chance of recognising the Turkish occupation regime, noting that this position is welcomed.

    Asked if the Greek Cypriot side was pursuing drastic changes to the Annan plan, the Spokesman said ''we are pursuing substantive negotiations on the basis of the Annan plan''.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
