    Independence parade not a show of strength, says government

    Nicosia, Sep 29 (CNA) -- Wednesday's military parade to commemorate the Republic's independence day is not designed to cause tension nor is it a show of strength, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides has stressed.

    He also said that the three-day official visit to Cyprus by Greek National Defence Minister Yiannos Papantoniou reflects the close ties between Athens and Nicosia in defence matters as well.

    Joint Defence Pact ''effective and deterrent,'' says Greek Minister (1)

    Larnaca, Sep 29 (CNA) - Greece's National Defence Minister Yiannos Papantoniou has assured Cyprus that Athens will continue to provide substantive support in defence matters and said that the Joint Defence Pact between the two countries acts as a deterrent and operates in an effective manner.

    Speaking on arrival for a three-day official visit here, Papantoniou expressed hope that after Cyprus' accession to the European Union, in May 2004, prospects for a political settlement to reunite the island would be better.

    Larnaca, Sep 29 (CNA) - Greek National Defence Minister Yiannos Papantoniou has given strong assurances that Greece will continue to back Cyprus not only in the realm of defence matters but also in the attempt to find a peaceful negotiated settlement that would reunite the now divided island, whose northern areas are under Turkish occupation.

    Larnaca, Sep 29 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said he is satisfied with the high level contacts he had last week in New York, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, and the messages communicated to him by his interlocutors.

    Speaking on arrival at Larnaca Airport, he said more and more parties involved in the question of Cyprus recognise the need to change certain provisions in a UN peace proposal and said the Greek Cypriot side, which is seeking to introduce some amendments to the proposal, will have to convince others at the negotiating table of the necessity for the changes it is proposing.

    The President also said UN-led talks are not expected to resume before December's so-called ''parliamentary elections'' in Turkish occupied Cyprus.
