    [01] Cyprus - EU - House of Commons - Vaz

    Nicosia, Jan 26 (CNA) -- The unity of Cyprus is not a precondition of membership of the European Union, Britain's Minister of Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Keith Vaz has said pointing out that the countries involved in that issue are aware of this position.

    Answering a question on Cyprus' accession course to the EU, put forward by MP Sir David Madel in the House of Commons, Vaz said Britain is "in complete agreement with the talks that are going on", noting that UN-led proximity talks on Cyprus "are important". CNA/RM/GP/2001

    [02] Spokesman - Yugoslavia - Claims

    Nicosia, Jan 26 (CNA) -- Cyprus Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou has expressed dismay and surprise at allegations by a high ranking Yugoslav banking official, who said the Republic refuses to hand over information about secret accounts former Yugoslav government officials are said to have on the island.

    "If such statements were made by the Governor of the Central Bank of Yugoslavia, I am very surprised and dismayed at them," Papapetrou said, commenting on remarks by the Yugoslav official that Switzerland, Greece and Cyprus refuse to give any information on secret bank accounts belonging to former Yugoslav officials.

    [03] Government Spokesman - Cyprus President - UN envoy

    Nicosia, Jan 26 (CNA) -- President Glafcos Clerides today made it abundantly clear to the UN chief's special adviser for Cyprus that the Greek Cypriot side will not agree to a change in the procedure followed by the UN since December 1999, aiming at reaching a comprehensive settlement on the island.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou told reporters after President Clerides' nearly two-hour long meeting with De Soto, that the President underlined the need for Kofi Annan to set a date for the continuation of the proximity talks and if any of the two sides does not respond then he should inform the Security Council accordingly.
