  • [01] CYPRIOT FM FINNISH INITIATIVE

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas expressed the hope that the Finnish presidency`s initiative over Turkey`s EU accession negotiations will yield results.

    Speaking at Larnaca Airport on his return from Brussels, where he took part in the General Affairs and External Relations Council, Lillikas repeated that Nicosia would like this initiative to be productive and for this reason worked very closely and constructively with the presidency.

    ``I hope that they will not play a game of impressions or blame our side for Turkey`s accession course,`` the Minister said, adding that ``the presidency assured us that it has no intention to play such game.``

    Lillikas said Finnish Minister of Foreign Affairs Erkki Tuomioja informed the EU partners for the first time over his country`s initiative and referred to the demands of many member states to begin a discussion on Turkey`s accession course the soonest.

    [02] CYPRIOT PRESIDENT CHINA VISIT

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos will be visiting China from 3 to 8 December 2006.

    The President will be accompanied by a group of businesspeople and journalists.

    According to the President`s preliminary programme, the first stop is Shanghai, followed by Beijing.

    Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) Legal Affairs and Human Rights Committee Rapporteur on ``The situation of the inhabitants of the Sovereign British Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia`` Andreas Gross described as ``second class citizens`` the SBA inhabitants.

    The CoE official called on the British authorities to provide these people with the kind of treatment which corresponds to the British standards of human rights and democracy.

    Speaking after meeting House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias, Gross said that he visited Akrotiri and spoke with the citizens there and the village council. Gross is due to prepare a report on the issue.

    Gross remarked that ``the people are suffering and the speaker gave us the same message,`` noting that they have to improve their legal position.
