    Commonwealth supports unity of a reunited Cyprus

    Nicosia, Mar 5 (CNA) -- Commonwealth leaders have reaffirmed their support to UN Security Council resolutions on Cyprus and a solution to the Cyprus problem that would ensure the independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of a reunited Cyprus.

    In a reference on Cyprus in their final communique issued today, at the end of the Commonwealth Summit held in Australia, the Heads of Government welcomed the resumption of talks on the Cyprus question held between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides, under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General, "within the framework of his mandate of good offices mission as described in Security Council resolution 1250."

    The Commonwealth leaders noted that progress could only be made at the negotiating table and encouraged all concerned to co-operate fully with the Secretary-General and his Special Adviser "to show flexibility and negotiate to the conclusion of a just and lasting settlement consistent with relevant Security Council resolutions."

    Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides, who represented the President of the Republic at the Commonwealth summit, expressed satisfaction with the reference on Cyprus in the final communique, adding that it fully covers those parameters, which are important for the Greek Cypriot side.

    Kasoulides noted that the communique takes into consideration the fact that the direct talks on the Cyprus question were being held and sets out the principles for a solution of the problem, "which are the UN resolutions and the principle of the territorial integrity of one state of Cyprus and the support of the independence and sovereignty of that state."

    The full text of the Cyprus reference in the final communique of the Commonweaslth summit reads as follows:

    "Recalling and reaffirming previous United Nations Security Council resolutions and reaffirming their previous communiques on Cyprus, Heads of Government welcomed the resumption of talks between the two sides under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General within the framework of his mandate of good offices mission as described in Security Council resolution 1250.

    They noted that progress could only be made at the negotiating table and encouraged all concerned to co-operate fully with the Secretary-General and his Special Adviser to show flexibility and negotiate to the conclusion of a just and lasting settlement consistent with relevant Security Council resolutions.

    Heads of Government reiterated their support for a Cyprus settlement that ensures the independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of a reunited Cyprus."

    US: democratic principles respected in Cyprus

    Nicosia, Mar 5 (CNA) -- Democratic principles generally are respected in both the government-controlled areas of Cyprus and in the Turkish Cypriot community, US State Department report on human rights for 2001 says.

    The report reiterates that Washington does not recognise the self-styled Turkish Cypriot regime in the island's Turkish-occupied areas, that it considers the judiciary in both communities "generally independent" but points out that the treatment of Greek Cypriots in occupied Cyprus "still falls short of Turkish Cypriot obligations" under a 1975 agreement it has signed.

    The 25-page report makes a special reference to a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that found Turkey guilty of human rights violations in Cyprus stemming from the 1974 "Turkish military intervention" as it calls Turkey's invasion of 20 July 1974.
