    EU accession accelerated education projects, says Minister

    by Argyro Aggelidou

    Nicosia, May 23 (CNA) -- Accession to the European Union has helped accelerate the funding and implementation of big education-related projects and offers Cyprus the chance to become a regional centre for education serving as a link between the EU and the countries of the Middle East, the Arab Gulf and North Africa, Education and Culture Minister Pefkios Georgiades has said.

    In an interview with CNA to mark one year since accession, the Minister said that since January this year the ministry has set up a permanent fiscal commission to oversee proposals for EU funding from structural funds.

    Cyprus President: Up to UN Chief to decide upon new initiative

    Nicosia, May 23 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said here today that it is up to the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to conclude his consultations and meetings and decide if the necessary conditions exist for a new initiative on Cyprus.

    Quoting the UN, he said that the Greek Cypriot side, during the discussions in New York between his envoy, Ambassador Tasos Tzionis, and UN officials, elaborated its positions clearly and in detail.

    ''Our objectives were to persuade the Secretary General that the Greek Cypriots had rejected his plan for good and valid reasons because it did not provide for the actual reunification of the island and to encourage him to start a new process'', Papadopoulos added.

    House President hopes new UN initiative to be a success

    Limassol, May 23 (CNA) -- Cyprus House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias has expressed hope that a fresh UN initiative for a political settlement would be successful, stressing that it must be well prepared and take place without tight deadlines and arbitration.

    In his address to a meeting of the Legal Affairs and Human Rights Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, he called on the Turkish Cypriot leadership to avoid any moves that consolidate division and to cooperate in good faith for a solution.

    He pointed to the need for Turkey to comply with decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, in particular with regard to the humanitarian issue of missing persons that concerns both Cypriot communities.

    Cyprus encourages EU agreement on resources

    by Nicos Bellos

    Brussels, May 23 (CNA) - Cyprus encourages the efforts of the Luxembourg presidency of the EU to reach an agreement in June regarding the resources of the Union for the period 2007-2013 but is finding it difficult to relate to the content of the existing negotiating framework, given that its contribution to the budget is increasing.

    This was the main remark Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Iacovou made during last night's ministers' conclave, which took place in Brussels.

    Greek Cypriot consultations with UN considered positive

    Nicosia, May 23 (CNA) - Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides has described as positive the results of the consultations of the Greek Cypriot side in New York with UN Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs Sir Kieran Prendergast.

    In a written statement today, the Spokesman says that President Tassos Papadopoulos had a meeting yesterday with his Special Envoy to the UN Secretariat General, Ambassador Tasos Tzionis, during which the President ''was thoroughly informed'' as to the consultations that took place in New York Sir Kieran.

    President Papadopoulos considers that, following the conclusion of the consultations, ''it can no longer be asserted that those who should be informed of our positions continue to be unaware of them,'' the Spokesman notes.
