    [01] US report - Cyprus - Economic future

    Nicosia, Jun 15 (CNA) -- A report on post-settlement economic prospects for Cyprus, commissioned by the US government, sees enormous benefits for the Turkish Cypriot community and very good prospects for the Greek Cypriot community, on the assumption that the country will operate as "a single bizonal entity, consisting of two component states" administered by the two sides.

    Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou, in an initial assessment of the report, said "it confirms the obvious, that the solution in Cyprus will have a positive economic impact on Cyprus as a whole and on the people of Cyprus, Greek and Turkish Cypriots, in various sectors, especially in view of the accession of a unified Cyprus in the European Union."

    [05] Foreign Minister - EU enlargement

    by Maria Koniotou Gothenburg, Jun 15 (CNA) - Cyprus' Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has suggested that European Union enlargement could take place in stages, if candidate countries set to join in 2004 are not all ready at the time.

    He also expressed the hope that the EU summit that began today in Gothenburg will send stronger messages with regard to enlargement than those the previous summit had sent from Nice. CNA/MM/RG/2001


    [06] Greek Prime Minister - EU - Cyprus

    by Maria Koniotou Gothenburg, Jun15 (CNA) - Greece will use all means at its disposal so that Cyprus will be among the countries that will accede to the European Union during its next enlargement, Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis has said in the sidelines of the EU Summit that began here today.

    Speaking at a press conference, Simitis noted that EU enlargement was not reversible and that in the case of Cyprus, Greece was interested to see negotiations intensified in order for them to conclude soon.



    [07] UN resolution - UNFICYP - Cyprus

    Nicosia, Jun 15 (CNA) - The UN Security Council today renewed for a further six- month period the mandate of the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).

    Resolution 1354 "reaffirms all its resolutions on Cyprus, and in particular resolution 1251 (1999) of June 29, 1999 and subsequent resolutions".

    The Security Council in its resolution 1251 "reaffirms its position that a Cyprus settlement must be based on a state of Cyprus with a single sovereighty and international personality and a single citizenship, with its independence and territorial integrity safeguarded and comprising two politically equal communities as described in the relevant Security Council resolutions, in a bicommunal and bizonal federation, and that such a settlement must exclude union in whole or in part with any other country or any form of partition or secession."

    Today's resolution welcomes the report of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, dated May 30, 2001, on the UN operation in Cyprus, and "in particular the call to the parties to assess and address the humanitarian issue of missing persons with due urgency and seriousness".

    It "urges the Turkish Cypriot side and Turkish forces to rescind the restrictions imposed on June 30, 2000, on the operations of UNFICYP, and to restore the military status quo ante at Strovilia".

    The Turkish occupation forces illegally put up a checkpoint in the southeastern area of Strovilia as part of measures against UNFICYP in retaliation to the non- inclusion of an addendum in a report by UN chief Kofi Annan for an earlier renewal of the Force's mandate with a Turkish demand for separate discussions with UNFICYP.

    The Security Council notes that "the government of Cyprus has agreed that in view of the prevailing conditions in the island, it is necessary to keep UNFICYP beyond June 15, 2001", and "decides to extend the mandate of UNFICYP for a further period ending December 15, 2001".

    In its resolution, the Security Council "requests the Secretary-General to submit a report by December 1, 2001, on the implementation of this resolution", and "decides to remain actively seized of the matter".

    It also welcomes and encourages UN efforts "to sensitise peacekeeping personnel in the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS and other communicable diseases in all its peacekeeping operations".

    The UN has some 1.200 peacekeepers in Cyprus, who patrol a 180-kilometre- long buffer zone across the island, divided since Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37 percent of its territory in the summer of 1974.

    Some 200.000 Greek Cypriots, making one third of the island's population were forcibly uprooted from their homes and properties by the Turkish invasion troops. Hundreds of people have been missing since then. CNA/RG/GP/2001


    [08] Cyprus - Dominica - Burkina Faso - Diplomatic relations

    Nicosia, Jun 15 (CNA) - Cyprus has signed protocols to establish diplomatic relations with Dominica and Burkina Faso, providing for the development of cooperation on the basis of respect of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of the countries.

    The documents were signed in New York by Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN Sotos Zackheos, and the Permanent Representatives of Dominica Simon Paul Richards and of Burkina Faso Michel Kafando. CNA/RG/GP/2001


    [09] Spyros Kyprianou - Health

    Nicosia, Jun 15 (CNA) - The probable primary site of the metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pelvis, which was found in former President of the Republic of Cyprus Spyros Kyprianou, may be the lung, according to the Director of the Bank of Cyprus Oncology Centre Demetris Andreopoulos.

    Andreopoulos said that the detailed clinical, radiology and istopathology reports, confirmed the diagnosis, adding that Kyprianou was already having local radiotherapy in the pelvis, and that next week he would undergo systematic chemotherapy, as an outpatient. CNA/RG/GP/2001


    [10] Swedish Prime Minister - EU Summit - Enlargement

    by Maria Koniotou Gothenburg, Jun 15 (CNA) - Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson has said here today that the 15 member states of the European Union have not yet decided on the wording of their conclusions concerning the enlargement process and are just now negotiating in order to find a wording acceptable by all of them and which will send a message to the applicant countries that they want the enlargement process to go ahead.

    Speaking at a press conference, Persson said he was quite optimistic that the members would be able to find a wording "that unites us and that will also satisfy tomorrow's guests, the prime ministers and presidents of the applicant countries". CNA/MK/RG/2001
