    [01] National Council - Meeting

    Nicosia, Jan 3 (CNA) -- Political party leaders will be putting forward their views on the latest developments in the Cyprus question and the Republic's European Union accession course at a National Council meeting tomorrow.

    The National Council, top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus problem and made up of House of Representatives parties, had convened last week where it was briefed by President Glafcos Clerides and Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides on the Cyprus peace talks and the Helsinki EU summit.

    [02] Turkish Cypriots - EU - Cyprus solution - Poll

    Nicosia, Jan 3 (CNA) -- Turkish Cypriots support the accession of Cyprus as a whole to the European Union but at the same time favour the establishment of two "separate states" on the island with a bizonal, bicommunal federation ranking second in their preferences.

    The poll was carried out on December 6, 1999 in the areas occupied by Turkish troops since 1974 by 54 experts. A total of 950 people, over 18, throughout the occupied territories took part. The poll included Turkish settlers, who are described as "Turkish Cypriots" since the occupation regime has granted them so-called "citizenship". The poll was published in the Turkish Cypriot newspaper "Kibris".

    [03] President - Britain - Nuclear

    Nicosia, Jan 1 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides has said the UK has not informed the government of the Republic about the existence or not of nuclear weapons on the military bases Britain has retained after it granted Cyprus its independence in 1960.

    He also said in the past there were indications that nuclear weapons were probably stored at the Bases but noted that things have changed since then.

    On his part, British High Commissioner in Nicosia Edward Clay neither denied nor confirmed reports about nuclear weapons in the British Bases in Cyprus and pointed out that London does not comment on such issues.

    [05] Union of Cyprus Journalists - T/C newspaper - Appeal

    Nicosia, Jan 3 (CNA) -- The Union of Cyprus Journalists (UCJ) has written to the ambassadors in Nicosia of the five permanent members of the Security Council and the ambassador of the European Union in Cyprus, asking them to exert their influence on Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to stop the prosecution of T/C newspaper "Avrupa" (Europe).

    Only a few days after an illegal "court" in the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus ordered "Avrupa" to pay a huge "fine" for "defamatory" reports against Denktash, the UCJ wrote to Denktash himself with a similar appeal noting that the 260 thousand US dollar "fine" will lead to the paper's closure.
