    Background: THE CYPRUS FLASH-POINT: FRESH HOPE OF A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT CAME TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) WITH THE NEWS THAT CYPRUS HAS AGREED TO TAKE PART IN A CONFERENCE SHORTLY TO THRASH OUT THE WHOLE OF THE CRITICAL CYPRUS PROBLEM.

    THE CONFERENCE, TO BE HELD IN LONDON SHORTLY, WILL ALSO BE ATTENDED BY BRITISH, TURKISH AND GREEK GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES. CYPRUS'S INTENTION TO TAKE PART IN THE TALKS WAS ANNOUNCED AS BRITAIN'S COMMONWEALTH SECRETARY, MR. SANDYS, FLEW HOME TONIGHT AFTER FURTHER TALKS WITH PRESIDENT MAKARIOS.

    MEANWHILE, ON THE TROUBLED ISLAND ITSELF, BRITISH MOBILE UNITS ARE ON CONSTANT PATROL, IN A BID TO KEEP THE PEACE BETWEEN GREEK AND TURKISH CYPRIOTS. A VISNEWS CAMERAMAN ACCOMPANIED ONE OF THE PATROLS FROM NICOSIA TO TURKISH-CYPRIOT VILLAGE NEAR KIRENIA YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY).

    ARMOURED TRUCKS IN THE PATROL WERE DRAPED WITH UNION JACKS TO AID IDENTIFICATION. THE PATROL WAS HALTED AT A ROAD-BLOCK SET UP BY ARMED TURKISH-CYPRIOTS ON THE VILLAGE OUTSKIRTS, BUT ALLOWED TO PASS WITHOUT INCIDENT.
