London, Jan 17 (CNA) - British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw's visit to Cyprus will take place according to plan on January the 24th, Foreign Office's Official Spokesman told CNA.

Asked whether the visit will take place on the basis of the original plan which provided for a meeting of the Foreign Secretary with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat at the so called presidential palace in the Turkish - occupied areas of Cyprus, the Spokesman said ''at his office''.

Answering to another question whether the British High Commission in Nicosia will be having consultations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nicosia, the Spokesman said that he did not know what arrangements the High Commission was making in Nicosia.

Asked whether Talat's visit to London will finally take place, the Spokesman said the appropriate services are dealing with that.
