    Background: The General Affairs Committee of the seven-nation Western Europe Union met in Athens, Greece, on Saturday (9 October) to examine the Eastern Mediterranean situation.

    SYNOPSIS: Peace talks between Greek and Turkish Cypriots have been in deadlock since last February, and there is growing concern that they will not be resumed. Saturday's talks were chaired by the President of the Assembly, Hellmet Sieglerschmidt. While WEU members were in Athens for their meeting they also met Greek members of parliament to get their views on the situation in Cyprus. When the session ends a summary of the assembly's findings will be made to the next major meeting of the assembly in Paris, France, next month. The Union co-operates on defence, social, legal. cultural and political affairs.
