    Denmark hopes for new impetus in peace process

    by Maria Myles

    Nicosia, Aug 9 (CNA) -- The representative of the Danish European Union presidency in Cyprus has expressed hope that the UN-led Cyprus peace process, now facing a deadlock, would be given a fresh impetus next month when the UN Secretary General meets President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash.

    In an interview with CNA, Knud Johansen, charge d'affaires of Denmark here, noted that the UN peace talks have not progressed as the EU had hoped.

    Johansen welcomed the constitutional reforms Turkey has adopted last week as "an important step but only the first step" and pointed out that the difficult part of their implementation remains to be seen.
