    Papapetrou: Two schools of thought on Cyprus in Turkey

    Nicosia, Feb 1 (CNA) -- Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said today that yesterday's statement of the Turkish National Security Council, which expressed its strong support to Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash's stance on Cyprus and recent statements by the leader of the ruling party in Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Cyprus, confirmed the existence of two schools of thought in Turkey as regards the handling of the Cyprus issue.

    Demonstration against war in Iraq

    Nicosia, Feb 1 (CNA) - Around 100 people, mainly Cypriots, Iraqis, Iranians and Palestinians demonstrated here today outside the US embassy condemning the United States and Britain for wanting to launch a military operation against Iraq.

    Among the demonstrators, who held placards reading ''Stop the war' , ''No blood for oil'', ''Stop the war'' and ''Burn the Base of death'' and chanted slogans of a similar content, beating drums and blowing whistles, were members of left-wing groups and the local Green party.

    There was a discreet police presence, as protestors were shepherded across the road from the large, fortress-like embassy to an open field, cut off from the street by barbed wire.

    T/C to benefit enormously from accession of a united island

    by Kyriakos Tsioupras

    London, Feb 1 (CNA) -- Cyprus Finance Minister Takis Klerides said a possible solution of the Cyprus problem and a reunification of the island will create opportunities for acceleration of economic growth in Cyprus.

    Speaking at a gathering of Cypriot students at the London School of Economics and Political Science on The Cyprus Economy After the Copenhagen Summit'', Klerides said the Government of Cyprus has officially committed itself to allocate the peace dividend of an eventual solution of the Cyprus problem that is the savings accruing from the eventual elimination of defence spending towards supporting the developmental effort after a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Klerides said the forthcoming accession to the EU is expected to strengthen the political security on the island, thus enhancing the business climate, and stressed that in the event of a solution of the Cyprus problem, Turkish Cypriots will be also able to benefit from the enhanced employment opportunities.

    Markides: G/C side cannot accept Denktash's proposals

    Nicosia, Feb 1 (CNA) -- Attorney General Alekos Markides, one of Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides' aides at the UN-led direct talks on Cyprus said today there was no other choice for the Greek Cypriot side but to reject the proposals of the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash on a UN peace plan.

    Invited to comment Denktash's statements that the Greek Cypriot side rejected all of his proposals, Markides said that ''our side did not accept any of the so many things Denktash was asking, with regard to his demand for two independent sovereign states, cooperating at the centre, aiming to use our side as a vehicle that will lead its side to Europe.''
