    Moscow, Oct 17 (CNA) -- Russia's former Ambassador to Cyprus Georgi Muradov has expressed concern over the lack of progress in the Cyprus peace process and moves from certain circles to find a settlement out of the context of UN resolutions.

    Nicosia, Oct 17 (CNA) - The new Ambassador of Argentina to Cyprus, Gregorio Jorge Dupont, today presented his credentials to President Glafcos Clerides, stressing that his government "reiterates once more its solemn support to the ongoing UN-led proximity talks, in the hope that the people of Cyprus will promptly achieve a just peace in a united Cyprus".

    He added that the friendship between the two countries "is demonstrated and enhanced by the deployment of the Argentine contingent within the UN Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP), which contributes to preserving the independence and territorial integrity of Cyprus". CNA/RG/MM/2000

    Landaburu noted, however, that it was not up to the EU at this point to determine its position regarding the acquis communautaire if a settlement of the Cyprus problem was achieved. CNA/GG/RG/ΜΜ/2000

    [13] Interparliamentary Union - Cyprus problem

    Nicosia, Oct 17 (CNA) - Ruling right-wing Democratic Rally President, Nicos Anastasiades, said today that the sooner Ankara realises that the so-called "realities" of the Turkish occupation of the northern third of Cyprus cannot be part of a solution to the Cyprus problem, the sooner a just and viable settlement will be achieved.

    Addressing the plenary session of the 104th Interparliamentary Union, taking place in Jakarta, Anastasiades described the situation in Cyprus as unacceptable, as for the past 26 years it is in violation of the UN Charter and UN Security Council resolutions, as well as the principles of international law.
