    [01] President Clerides - US Embassy

    Nicosia, Sep 17 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government pledges to cooperate with the US government and all the other governments engaged in the battle against terrorism, Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides assured today, expressing at the same time Cyprus people's sympathy with the victims of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington last Tuesday.

    Speaking after signing a book of condolences opened at the US Embassy in Nicosia, for those killed during the attacks, President Clerides said "the government of the Republic of Cyprus and the people of Cyprus condemn unreservedly the barbaric terrorist attack against the United States, which caused thousands of Americans citizens and others to be dead or missing."

    He said the government and the people of Cyprus express "sympathy with the victims and the relatives of the missing persons and pledges to cooperate with the government of the United States and all the other governments engaged in the battle against terrorism."

    US Ambassador to Cyprus Donald Bandler expressed gratitude for the sympathy and support received from the Cyprus government and people and expressed his condolences "to Cypriots who have lost members of their family and friends in this tragic and senseless attack."

    Bandler read a passage written by Pericles in 429 B.C. in ancient Greece, on freedom and democracy, pointing out that his words are as valid today as they were then.

    Concluding, Bandler said "it is a moment of profound sadness but also a moment in which the American people, following a sense of shock, have a sense of common purpose and dedication to making the world a livable place" as well as "a strong sense of unity" in the nation. "This is not a problem for Americans but a problem for the civilised world", the US diplomat added.



    [02] Spokesman - Cyprus problem

    Nicosia, Sep 17 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government will make every possible effort so that the Cyprus question would regain the dynamic attached to it before the terrorist attacks against the US, government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today adding the government discreetly proceeds to various contacts on the Cyprus question.

    Papapetrou told his briefing that the National Council (Cyprus' top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus problem) would decide on how we would proceed in the Cyprus question. CNA/RM/MK/2001
