Cyprus on Wednesday closed yet another chapter in the context of its negotiations with the European Union.
Cyprus, which opened accession negotiations with the EU in 1998, has now provisionally closed 24 out of 29 chapters under negotiation.
The chapter concerns Justice and Internal Affairs, and the final decision will be taken at the ministerial meeting between the EU and the candidate countries which is scheduled for December 10-11.
At Wednesday's meeting of the 14th inter-governmental meeting on Cyprus' accession, Cyprus' Chief negotiator with the EU George Vassiliou briefed the EU officials on Cyprus' adaptation course with the acquis communautaire with regard to the chapters which remain open as well as to the face to face talks which President Glafcos Clerides will have with Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash in Nicosia on December 4.
