    [01] EU enlargement commissioner - Visit to Cyprus

    Brussels, Jan 26 (CNA) -- European Union Commissioner responsible for enlargement Guenter Verheugen will be visiting Cyprus in March, where he will also meet Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash in a bid to convince him of the need for Turkish Cypriot participation in the Republic's accession talks.

    Announcing yesterday his decision during a meeting of the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee discussing enlargement , Verheugen expressed the view that December's EU Helsinki summit decision to give Turkey a candidate status improves the climate in the Cyprus question, even though he acknowledged that until now there has been no progress in efforts for a settlement on the island.

    [02] Cyprus - Denktash - EU

    Nicosia, Jan 26 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government has expressed regret at the refusal of the Turkish Cypriot leader to allow a meeting between a senior European Union official and Turkish Cypriots to take place.

    Describing the move as "anachronistic", Cyprus Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said this kind of attitude is contrary to the climate created after the EU gave Turkey candidate status at its Helsinki summit last December.

    [03] Maurer - Vassiliou

    Nicosia, Jan 26 (CNA) -- The European Commission Services' delegation under Leopold Maurer began today its meetings here with the Cyprus team negotiating the island's accession to the European Union and relevant services to discuss the chapters to be negotiated under the Portuguese Presidency.

    Speaking on the sidelines of the discussions, the head of the Cyprus team George Vassiliou said the aim of the delegation's visit is to determine how much progress towards harmonisation with the acquis communautaire has been achieved and where the process is delayed.
