    Limassol, Sep 29 (CNA) - The seventh peace march, organised by the Pancyprian Peace Council, ended with no incidents today.

    Addressing the demonstrators, House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias said the British authorities should have complied with EU instructions ''to abandon the current installations at the Akrotiri Salt Lake and hand over the very important wetland to Cyprus and its people''.

    UK and EU to decide on Cyprus based on Helsinki decisions

    by Kyriacos Tsioupras

    London, Sep 29 (CNA) - The main factor to be taken into account by the UK and the EU in their decision concerning Cyprus' accession to the Union will be the 1999 Helsinki European Council's decisions, British Minister for Europe Peter Hain has said.

    Replying in writing to a question by Labour MP Andrew Love, Hain stressed that the EU had decided in Helsinki that a political settlement of the Cyprus issue would facilitate its accession to the Union.
