    [03] Foreign Minister - Cyprus - EU - Turkey

    Nicosia, Dec 22 (CNA) -- Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides today said the European Union Helsinki summit has created a new political climate which the Turkish side cannot ignore, even though it is early to say whether it has affected its policy, especially towards Cyprus.

    Kasoulides also said an invitation to Turkish Cypriots to participate in Cyprus' accession negotiations still stands and underlined that the process of the proximity peace talks that got underway is the only way to settle the protracted Cyprus problem.

    [04] Trade unions - Strike - COLA

    Nicosia, Dec 22 (CNA) -- Members of three trade unions staged a two-hour work stoppage today claiming the government is promoting a partial abolition of the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).

    The leftist Pancyprian Federation of Labour (PEO), the Democratic Labour Federation of Cyprus (DEOK) which is affiliated to the island's socialist party EDEK and the Pancyprian Organisation of Independent Unions (POAS) warned that if the government decides to proceed with plans to restructure COLA, it will be solely responsible for the consequences.
