    [01] Defence Minister - Moscow - Missiles deal

    Nicosia, Feb 13 (CNA) -- Defence Minister Yiannakis Chrysostomis will fly to Moscow on Monday for talks that will allow the Russian anti-aircraft missile system S300, ordered by the Cyprus government, to be deployed in the southern Greek island of Crete.

    During his stay in the Russian capital Chrysostomis will also meet his counterpart Igor Sergeyev.

    A delegation from the Greek Defence Ministry is also expected to participate in the talks with the manufacturing company of the S300.

    The decision for the deployment of the S300 in Crete was taken in the Greek capital on February 8 during talks between Chrysostomis and Greek Defence Minister Akis Tsohatzoploulos.

    The Cypriot government had ordered the defence missile system in January 1997, but at the end of last year President Glafcos Clerides decided not to deploy it in compliance with two UN resolutions calling for the reduction of troops and armaments on the island.

    Cyprus has been divided since Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37 per cent of its territory in 1974.

    The Cypriot side appears optimistic that talks in Russia will be successfully concluded as Moscow is not against the deployment of the S300 in Crete.
