  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES SPECIALLY ENVOY, MR. CYPRUS VANCE, FLEW INTO CYPRUS EARLY TODAY (WEDNESDAY) ON THE SIXTH DAY OF HIS MISSION TO MAINTAIN PEACE BETWEEN GREECE AND TURKEY. DURING THE DAY HE CONFERRED WITH BOTH PRESIDENT MAKARIOS AND THE FOREIGN MINISTER SPYROS KYPRIANOU, AND PAID A COURTESY CALL ON THE TURKISH-CYPRIOT LEADER, DR. FAZIL KUTCHUK. NO PARTY WOULD REVEAL DETAILS OF THE DISCUSSIONS.

    WAITING TO WELCOME MR. VANCE WAS THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO CYPRUS, MR. BULTCHER, AND MR. PELAGIAS AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PRESIDENT MAKARIOS. MR. VANCE WAS UNABLE TO OFFER REPORTERS ANY INFORMATION, AND DROVE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY TO THE MINISTRY OF EXTERIOR AND THEN TO THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE ON THE ??? OF NICOSIA.

    THERE WERE SMILES FROM PRESIDENT MAKARIOS AS THE 70-MINUTE MEETING ENDED, AND INDICATIONS FROM THE PRESIDENT THAT HE HAD HOPES OF GOOD NEWS. BY CONTRAST, THE TURKISH-CYPRIOT LEADER DR. FAZIL KUTCHUK, IS REPORTED TO HAVE APPEARED DESPONDENT AT THE END OF A LATER 30-MINUTE COURTESY CALL.

    A FURTHER MEETING WITH THE CYPRIOT PRESIDENT WAS PLANNING LATER IN THE DAY. BUT NEITHER GREEK-CYPRIOT NOR AMERICAN OFFICIALS WOULD REVEAL DETAILS OF THE DISCUSSIONS. ONE OFFICIAL STATED THAT THEY AWAITED THE OUTCOME OF A CYPRIOT CABINET MEETING, SAID TO CENTRE AROUND THE 650 TURKISH TROOPS STATIONED IN CYPRUS, WHICH PRESIDENT MAKARIOS HAS UP TO NOW INSISTED SHOULD WITHDRAW.

    OFF TURKEY TODAY CAME A FURTHER SNOW OF NAVAL STRENGTH. TURKISH WARSHIPS AGAIN SAILED CLOSE TO THE CYPRUS COAST, AND SPENT SEVERAL HOURS IN THE AREA BEFORE RETURNING TO THE PORT OF MERSIN THIS IS TAKEN AS INDICATIVE THAT TURKEY IS STILL POISED FOR INVASION.
