    [01] Cyprus government - Denktash - Peace talks

    Nicosia, Jan 9 (CNA) - The Cyprus government believes Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash remains intransigent in his position not to participate in UN-led peace talks, scheduled for later this month, unless his illegal regime in the Turkish-occupied part of the Republic is recognised.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou told his daily briefing today that it appears top US officials, who had meetings here over the past two days, have not managed to convince Denktash that it would be to his benefit to participate in talks.
