    [01] Egyptian Ambassador - Cyprus - Interview

    by Emilia Christofi

    Nicosia, Dec 15 (CNA) -- After the Helsinki European Council conclusions over Cyprus and Turkey, the people have now a new chance that they must catch it, said Egypt's Ambassador to Cyprus Omar Metwally, in an interview with CNA.

    He stated that his country wanted to see Cyprus reunited, according to the UN resolutions, expressing the hope that the UN-led proximity talks on Cyprus, whose first round ended yesterday in New York, would lead to a just, viable and lasting solution to the Cyprus problem.

    [02] Denktash - Ecevit - Statements

    Nicosia, Dec 15 (CNA) -- Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash said today proximity talks in New York on the Cyprus problem were "beneficial", because, "truths were put on the table" and the Turkish side had the chance to explain to foreign diplomats its demand for confederation.

    Speaking at a joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit, after an hour-long meeting in Constantinople (Istanbul) Denktash also expressed the hope that with Turkey a candidate for European Union accession, Ankara will be in a better position to assist the accession of a "confederal Cyprus to the Union".
