    [01] Cyprus - UN fees - UNFICYP costs

    Nicosia, Feb 21 (CNA) -- Cyprus has fully met its financial obligations to the United Nations, by paying the fee of 349.151 US dollars to the Ordinary Budget of the international organisation.

    UN Secretary-General Spokesman, Fred Echkard, said that Cyprus was the 40th state to settle its membership fee.

    Meanwhile, in its report to Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, the UN General Assembly states that the UN spent over 47,8 million dollars financing its peacekeeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP), during the period July 1997 - June 1998.

    It said that this expenditure was 178.500 US dollars lower than budgeted, due to a reduction in the number of UNFICYP soldiers stationed on the island and a freeze on staff recruitment as part of a downsizing effort.

    During the above mentioned period, the UN had 1.225 soldiers, 35 civilian police, 42 international staff and 287 local staff on the island.
