    [01] President - Return

    Paphos, Aug 20 (CNA) -- President Glafcos Clerides said here today he would be briefed about US contacts in Ankara when he meets with American Coordinator for Cyprus, Thomas Miller.

    Speaking on his return from a holiday cruise in the Aegean, the President said:

    "I have not had any information about Miller's meetings in Turkey but will be informed when I see him."

    Responding to questions, he said to the best of his knowledge press reports that Miller left Ankara empty-handed do not correspond to the reality of the situation.

    "What the press says does not really reflect the reality of the situation, as far as I know at the time of my departure for my holidays, (about ten days ago)," the President said.

    In a joking mood, he said he enjoyed his brief vacation and did not have any kind of political contacts.

    [02] Spokesman - Athens meeting

    Nicosia, Aug 20 (CNA) -- Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides said today there is a fixed agenda for President Glafcos Clerides' talks with Greek Premier Costas Simitis, in Athens, on August 27.

    He added that issues to be reviewed have been decided after consultations with Greek Foreign Under Secretary Yiannos Kranidiotis and the ambassadors of the two countries.

    Replying to questions, the spokesman said there is no specific request for the National Council (top advisory body to the President on the Cyprus issue) to meet the Greek Premier together with the President next week.

    Stylianides added that Cypriot leaders have expressed their wish for such a meeting and the issue will be discussed by the two leaders in their Athens meeting.

    The spokesman underlined that "there is absolute identity of views between the governments of Greece and Cyprus in their strategic goals and the handling of various issues."

    He pointed out that the Greek government supports Cyprus, follows developments in the Cyprus problem and cooperates with the country's political leadership.

    [03] Government - Illegal visits

    Nicosia, Aug 20 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government today expressed regret over illegal visits to the Turkish occupied areas of the Republic by foreign officials.

    Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides underlined that such visits "are contrary to decisions by the UN and other international organisations."

    Invited to comment on reports in the Turkish Cypriot press that aides to US Congressmen and Senators are visiting the areas of Cyprus occupied by Turkey since 1974 and have met with Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash and others, he said the government monitors these visits.

    Stylianides added that the government reacts accordingly to every specific case and tries to dissuade foreigners from visiting the occupied areas.

    Numerous UN resolutions call on all states not to recognise or in any way facilitate the secessionist entity, unilaterally declared in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus in 1983.
