    [02] National Guard - Annual exercises

    Nicosia, Oct 19 (CNA) -- Live ammunition was used today during the National Guard's annual exercises, in their fourth day, in all arms, the Ministry of Defence said in a press release, adding that helicopters also participated in the manoeuvres.

    Defence Minister Socratis Hasikos paid tribute to the reservists and the participating soldiers saying that they train to ensure the Republic's armed forces are ready for battle and can be a deterrent which would help Cyprus' negotiating tactics for a peaceful settlement of the Cyprus question.

    [03] Health Minister - Anthrax - Precautions

    Nicosia, Oct 19 (CNA) -- Cyprus Health Minister Frixos Savvides announced today that microbiologists are now manning district hospitals in Cyprus to help diagnose early any possible infection from the anthrax virus.

    The minister said Cyprus already has supplies of medical drugs to treat the anthrax virus, and added that if the World Health Organisation gives instructions to vaccinate people against smallpox, the ministry will proceed with vaccination.

    "As of yesterday, district hospitals are manned with microbiologists who can carry out the necessary medical tests promptly to see if a person has been infected by the anthrax virus so that the appropriate medication is dispensed," Savvides told journalists.| CNA/MM/RM/2001


    [04] Foreign Minister - Brussels - European Conference

    Paphos, Oct 19 (CNA) -- Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides believes that the US and Europe realise today, more than ever before, that disputes Greece and Cyprus have with Turkey have got to be resolved to enable all three countries to concentrate their efforts on the fight against terrorism.

    Speaking prior to his departure for Brussels, to attend tomorrow's European Conference on terrorism, Kasoulides said that had Cyprus not sided with the coalition of countries fighting terrorism the way it has done, it would have offered no good service to itself or to the values and principles it lives by.

    [05] Cyprus - International Conference on Tourism

    Nicosia, Oct 19 (CNA) -- The rate of growth in the tourist industry is set to record positive figures, in spite of the worldwide reduction in tourist arrivals, as a result of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, Deputy Secretary General of the World Tourism Orgnisation (WTO) Dawid de Villiers said here today.

    Addressing a one-day international conference on tourism, entitled "The Cyprus Tourism Industry in the 21st century, Challenges in the new Millenium", he said the tourist industry is still in its primary stages and only seven per cent of the world's population is in a position to travel, adding that Europe ranks first in this respect.

    [06] President Clerides - Ambassador of Oman - Credentials

    Nicosia, Oct 19 (CNA) -- Cyprus insists on the full implementation of all UN resolutions on the Middle East and Cyprus, a position that marks one of the pillars of foreign policy, President Glafcos Clerides said here today, receiving the credentials of the new Ambassador of Oman Abdulaziz Bin Zaheer Al-Hinai.

    Noting that bilateral cooperation is closer and more friendly, the President told Ambassador Al-Hinai that the international community cannot allow the self- styled Turkish Cypriot regime in Turkish occupied Cyprus to win political recognition as this would set a dangerous precedent.| CNA/MM/RM/2001


    [07] President Clerides - Ambassador of Qatar

    Nicosia, Oct 19 (CNA) -- President Glafcos Clerides has warned that the Middle East could find itself engulfed in a wider conflict with unforeseen consequences, if the present situation in the region is allowed to continue and expressed his commitment to assist in any way possible the Middle East peace process.

    Receiving the credentials of Qatar's new Ambassador to Cyprus, Mohamed Bin Hamad Mubarak Al Khaa, President Clerides said there are similarities between Cyprus and the Middle East problems, and added that no country will feel safe while secession, be it for political, economic, cultural, linguistic, religious even ideological reasons, is encouraged. The President said that soon the Republic's first resident Ambassador to Qatar will be accredited in Doha. CNA/MM/RM/2001


    [08] Defence Minister - Greek Deputy Defence Minister

    Nicosia, Oct 19 (CNA) -- Cyprus and Greece act in concert and are in full agreement as far as defence matters are concerned and intend to continue their cooperation along these lines.

    Cyprus Defence Minister Socratis Hasikos and Greek Deputy Defence Minister Demetrios Apostolakis gave assurances to this effect after a meeting here today, stressing that there is no change in the joint defence pact between the two countries, agreed in November 1993. CNA/MM/RM/2001
