    Nicosia, Nov 15 (CNA) -- The government, political parties, refugee organisations and students' organisations condemned today the unilateral declaration of independence in the areas of Cyprus occupied by Turkey since 1974.

    [07] Hannay - Interview - Cyprus

    London, Nov 15 (CNA) -- Britain's Special Representative for Cyprus, Sir David Hannay said the unresolved Cyprus problem has been "a bit of a poisoned thorn" for Turkey in its relations with the West, the US and the European Union (EU).

    He supported that the format of proximity talks provided for the scheduled UN-sponsored December 3 talks in New York on Cyprus have been the "vehicle" for many serious and successful negotiations, citing as examples the Camp David, Dayton and the Northern Ireland process, adding that the Americans have made a substantial input in the process for talks on Cyprus to take place.
