    Turkish Cypriots to emigrate due to Turkey's plans

    Nicosia, Sep 3 (CNA) - Turkish Cypriots are preparing to emigrate from the island due to Turkey's plans to annex the areas it occupies since 1974, according to Turkish Cypriot newspaper "Afrika", which adds that Turkey is planning to send more settlers to Cyprus to replace the emigrants.

    The daily accuses Turkey of blocking the way of the Turkish Cypriots towards a solution of the Cyprus problem and accession to the European Union and wonders: "For how long will the UN and the EU ignore the fact that Turkey keeps the Turkish Cypriots hostage for the sake of its own strategic interests?"

    In yesterday's issue, "Afrika" notes that the preconditions Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash "lays on the table are not the views of the Turkish Cypriots but the preconditions of Ankara".

    US:New options and alternatives must be found for Cyprus

    By Costas Iordanides

    Athens, Sep 3 (CNA) -- The United States believes that if the ongoing UN-led Cyprus peace talks do not bear fruit by mid-December, other options and alternatives must be examined, US State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus Thomas Weston said today.

    Weston, who met here with the Greek Alternate Foreign Minister Tasos Yiannitsis, said that these options and alternatives should be determined by the UN Secretary General.

    He noted that a solution to the Cyprus problem is urgent and stressed that the US believes that the opportunity offered now for Cyprus never existed in the past and this is partly due to Cyprus' forthcoming accession to the EU.
