    by Maria Myles

    Nicosia, Jan 21 (CNA) -- Germany has stressed that an invitation to the Turkish Cypriot leader for a meeting with the country's foreign minister does not alter Berlin's legal position but is part of German efforts to contribute towards a Cyprus settlement.

    German diplomatic sources have told CNA that the invitation is part of the dialogue Germany maintains with all interested parties involved in the Cyprus question.

    [04] House - T/C newspaper - Statement

    Nicosia, Jan 21 (CNA) -- The Cyprus House Human Rights Committee "unreservedly" condemned the unacceptable decision of an illegal "court" in the Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus to prosecute Turkish Cypriot daily "Avrupa".

    A statement issued after yesterday's debate at the House Committee called on the Cyprus government and the House of Representatives to take measures to stop the persecution of the newspaper which was ordered to pay a huge "fine" for "defamatory" reports against Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash.

    [05] Sweden - Cyprus - Turkey - EU

    Nicosia, Jan 21 (CNA) -- A solution to the "political dispute" in Cyprus would ease the course of the island's accession to the European Union (EU), Sweden's Foreign Minister Anna Lindh has said.

    The Swedish government also believes that a future accession of Cyprus to the EU will be to the interest of both sides on the island. The Swedish positions were conveyed in reply to a question by a leftist MP Sten Lundstrom who asked what Sweden intends to do to contribute to a solution to the Cyprus problem.
