    Australian envoy conveys message of encouragement to Cyprus

    Nicosia, Jun 5 (CNA) - Australia's special envoy for Cyprus Jim Short met this morning in Nicosia with Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos, to whom he conveyed a message of encouragement to see a just and equitable solution at a date as soon as it can be done.

    In statements after the meeting, Short expressed hope that all parties involved want a solution, noting however that the question is how one can best bring them together to reach an agreed solution.

    President says parties interested in Cyprus should clarify stance

    Larnaca, Jun 5 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said that all those who have been declaring they are interested in a Cyprus settlement and the reunification of the island, should now indicate ''whether they mean a solution and reunification or if what they aimed at was to bring back the solution plan'' proposed by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, having been rejected by the overwhelming majority of the Greek Cypriot community in April last year, with a few ''decorative changes.''

    The President said the aim of those supporting the lifting of the ''isolation'' of the Turkish Cypriots was political and noted that what they want is to upgrade the status of the occupied areas to the level of an almost legal entity, apart from the diplomatic recognition that they cannot offer them.

    Speaking at Larnaca Airport on return from Luxembourg, President Papadopoulos said the opening of Turkish ports to ships flying the Cyprus flag and permission to Cypriot aircraft to fly over Turkey, was an obligation of Ankara towards the EU.

    Cypriot President satisfied with Luxembourg summit

    Larnaca, Jun 5 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos returned to Cyprus last night from Luxembourg, satisfied with the results of the EU heads of state and government meeting, which was held at the invitation of the country's Prime Minister and president of the EU Jean Claude Junker, to discuss the fiscal framework of the EU for the period 2007 to 2013.

    Speaking on arrival at Larnaca Airport, President Papadopoulos expressed certainty that ''we made a very good presentation of our positions and I am quite satisfied, without yet being sure if what we have asked for will be met.''

    He added that in the context of his trip to Luxembourg he met with the country's Minister of Foreign Affairs to discuss the proposed EU regulations to financially help the Turkish Cypriots and exchanged views with him.

    President congratulates Cyprus' team in GSSE

    Nicosia, Jun 5 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos, in a letter to President of the Cyprus Olympic Committee and the members of the Cypriot team that participated in the 11th Games of the Small States of Europe (GSSE), which took place in Andorra, expresses congratulations to the members of the mission for the first place Cyprus clinched in the Games, by winning 38 gold, 27 silver and 25 bronze medals.

    ''The total of 90 medals our athletes secured, as well as the general presence of the Cypriot mission, made us all proud and proved once again that our country has the potential to excel and stand out internationally,'' the President says.
