    [01] Foreign Office - Cyprus

    London, Dec 1 (CNA) -- One should not expect too much out of the UN- sponsored proximity talks on Cyprus scheduled to start on Friday in New York, but if they are effective they will pave the way for negotiations leading to a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem, high level sources at the Foreign Office said here Tuesday.

    At the same time, if they are successful, the proximity talks will take longer than expected and Britain, like other countries with representatives on Cyprus, will play a helpful role.

    [02] US President - Cyprus question

    Washington, Dec 1 (CNA) -- US President Bill Clinton's recent personal involvement and tireless mediation bore fruit as the leaders of the two sides in Cyprus agreed to peace talks, says a White House statement on the US President's activity at home and abroad in November.

    It adds that due to the President's leadership "there is new hope for peace in Cyprus."

    [03] Cyprus government - Postal Services - Public Company

    Nicosia, Dec 1 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government has decided to convert the Postal Services Department into a public company with the state as its sole shareholder and allowing employees to become shareholders if they so wish.

    The decision was taken by the Council of Ministers in its meeting Tuesday under President Glafcos Clerides, according to an official announcement.

    [04] Cyprus Foreign Minister - Peace talks - EU

    London, Dec 1 (CNA) -- Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said the government responded to an invitation to participate in proximity talks for a settlement in Cyprus because the UN Secretary-General seems to be convinced the opportunity is still there and after assurances by Kofi Annan and the US that substantive negotiations on core issues will take place.

    Speaking to some 45 British MPs and members of government at a dinner organised in London Tuesday evening by the Greek Cypriot Brotherhood, Kasoulides also said Cyprus' European Union accession course should continue unhindered as the island cannot be a hostage to Turkish intransigence.

    [05] House Deputy President - EU enlargement

    Nicosia, Dec 1 (CNA) -- The need for an enlarged Europe founded on the principles of the rule of law and absolute respect of international law and human rights and the duty of national Parliaments to redress the actions of culprit states has been stressed by Deputy President of Cyprus' House of Representatives Nicos Anastasiades.

    Speaking at the 8th European Parliament meeting with Speakers of Parliament of candidate countries in Brussels, Anastasiades pointed to systematic and massive violation of fundamental human rights in Cyprus as a result of the 1974 Turkish invasion and the continuing occupation of 37 per cent of the island's territory.
