    Cyprus problem discussed at Commonwealth Summit

    Nicosia, Mar 4 (CNA)-- The Cyprus problem was discussed at the Commonwealth Heads of State and Government Conference being held in Australia.

    The issue was raised by Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides, who represents the island at the conference, during the discussion on international problems. He asked for the support of the Commonwealth in achieving a solution to the Cyprus problem based on a bizonal, bicommunal federation.

    According to an official announcement issued in Nicosia, all representatives of the member states who took the floor supported a solution of the Cyprus problem on the basis of the UN relevant resolutions.

    The discussion on the Cyprus problem was taken up by the Committee of High Officials, which will draft a reference on Cyprus to be included in final communique.

    Referring to the ongoing direct talks in Nicosia between Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot Leader Rauf Denktash, for a solution to the Cyprus problem, Kasoulides said in his speech that the outcome of the talks will show whether the principles on which the Commonwealth is based will be justified.

    It will prove, he added, whether the principles of territorial integrity, independence and unity of states will be respected or the existence of different nationalities in one state is cause for secession or partition, or cause for further tightening of relations and unity in a multicultural state.

    Kasoulides pointed out that if the principle put forward by Turkey in Cyprus, for every nationality to have a separate state, is accepted, then the UN will consist of 8.000 members instead of the present 188.

    He said the Turkish position for "two independent and sovereign states" in Cyprus cannot lead to a solution of the Cyprus problem and basically is outside the parametres of the UN resolutions which provide for one state in Cyprus with one sovereignty, one international personality and one nationality.

    Kasoulides concluded by saying that this state will consist of two politically equal communities, as they are described by the UN Secretary General in his 1990 report, within the framework of a bizonal, bicommunal federation.

    Cyprus to hold international Congress on religions and civilisations

    Nicosia, Mar 4 (CNA) -- An international congress entitled "Encounter of Religions and Civilisations" will be organised in Nicosia by the Cultural Foundation of Kykkos Monastery, between 8 - 11 March.

    Personalities from all over the world in the field of religion, letters, art and politics will participate at this four-day congress in Cyprus.

    Speaking at a press conference held here today, the Bishop of Kykkos Nikiforos said the main motive for the organization of this congress is "the crisis that plagues the world after the terrorist attacks on September 11 in New York and Washington, the war that followed in Afghanistan and the continuing crisis in the Middle East."

    Nikiforos underlined the importance of the congress for our divided country, which will be shown "as a bridge of civilization, peace and communication among people and as an example of tolerance of cultural, national and religious difference and will contradict the allegations that Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots cannot live together."

    "The first obligation of religions", he said "is to rise above nationalism and lay the foundation for dialogue and cooperation in order to overcome the present crisis."

    This congress, he added, has as its aim inter-religious and inter-cultural understanding and cooperation in order to eliminate fanaticism and intolerance, and contribute to the reconciliation of people and the prevalence of peace, justice and freedom.

    The Bishop of Kykkos said that this international congress will bring together Patriarchs, Archbishops, Bishops, Cardinals, Rabbis, Imams, Hinduists, Buddhists, ministers, Parliamentarians, deans of Universities and academics from the USA, East and West Europe, India, China and Japan.
