  • [01] CYPRUS FM - FINNISH PROPOSALS - FAMAGUSTA

    Cypriot Foreign Minister George Lillikas said he has received assurances that the issue of the return of the fenced-off city of Famagusta to its legal inhabitants is still included in the ideas of the EU Finnish Presidency, aiming to avert an EU - Turkey crisis.

    The Cypriot FM reiterated that for Cyprus ``the key to any agreement was and remains the return of the inhabitants of Famagusta.``

    [02] CYPRUS UN MONASTERY

    Cyprus has strongly protested to the UN, the intention of the Turkish government to finance a project that aims to transform the annexes of the historic Apostolos Andreas Monastery into a 120-room hotel.

    In a letter dated 14 November 2006 addressed to the Secretary-General, Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the United Nations Andreas Mavroyiannis says such developments aimed at destroying the character of a highly important religious and cultural landmark of Cyprus.

    In his letter, Mavroyiannis refers to the report in the Turkish Cypriot newspaper Kibris of 30 October 2006, which said the so-called Chairman of the Aid Mission of the purported Embassy in the occupied area of the Republic of Cyprus, has announced that Turkey is ready to provide 1.5 million new Turkish lira in financial aid for the restoration and reorganization of the surroundings and annexes of the Apostolos Andreas Monastery, in order to promote religious tourism in the area.

    The Government of the Republic of Cyprus strongly protests such developments aimed at destroying the character of a highly important religious and cultural landmark of Cyprus, the Cypriot Representative said.
