    [01] President - British High Commissioner

    Nicosia, Jan 25 (CNA) -- British High Commissioner in Nicosia Edward Clay has stressed London remains committed to a process the UN instigated in 1999 with the start of proximity talks between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides and believes this is the way forward leading to a settlement of the Cyprus question.

    Speaking after a meeting here today with President Glafcos Clerides, Clay said Britain will continue to support UN Secretary General in his effort to carry the process forward and build on ideas Kofi Annan has presented the two sides.
