  • [01] SPOKESMAN - LEDRAS - BRIDGE
  • [02] ARCHBISHOP - T/C DIRECTOR OF RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS
  • [03] SPOKESMAN - 8 JULY AGREEMENT
  • [04] BUNDESTAG PRESIDENT - CYPRUS QUESTION

  • [01] SPOKESMAN - LEDRAS - BRIDGE

    Cypriot Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis said Friday that the Turkish Cypriot side should decide whether it would bring down the bridge on Ledras street or not, adding that possibly Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat faces serious problems to implement his declared intention to bring down the bridge.

    Pashiardis comments came in the wake of press reports that the Turkish Cypriot side was digging a tunnel at Ledras Street, to create a crossing point between the Turkish occupied northern part of Nicosia and the government-controlled areas.

    Pashiardis said he could not confirm the information that the T/c side is digging a tunnel in the area, noting that the only thing that he could confirm is `the uncertainty as regards the demolition of the bridge.``

    Noting that Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat is in Ankara to meet with Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul and Turkish Armed Forces Commander Yiasar Buyukanit to discuss almost exclusively the issue of Ledras Street, Pashiardis said ``if the Turkish militaries disagree with the demolition of the bridge I don`t think that there is anyone, including Talat, who believes that the bridge can be brought down.``

    The Spokesman also recalled that when Talat had announced his decision to bring down the bridge he pledged that the demolition works would commence the very next day, while the work did not resume due to the Kurban Bayram (a religious feast).

    ``The Bayram is over and the bridge still stands,`` Pashiardis noted.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37 per cent of its territory.

    [02] ARCHBISHOP - T/C DIRECTOR OF RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS

    The primate of the Church of Cyprus, Archbishop Chrysostomos II, will meet this coming Monday with the Director of Religious Affairs of the Turkish Cypriot community Ahmet Yunluer, the Holy Archbishopric announced officially here today.

    The meeting, scheduled for 1200 noon local time (1000 GMT), will take place at the Holy Archbishopric in Nicosia, and will be attended by three senior Greek Orthodox clergy and another three aides to Yunluer.

    [03] SPOKESMAN - 8 JULY AGREEMENT

    Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis said here today the Greek Cypriot side has shown genuine will and interest in the implementation of the 8 July agreement.

    President Papadopoulos and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat agreed on July 8th 2006, during a meeting in the presence of UN Undersecretary General for Political Affairs Ibrahim Gambari, to begin a process of bicommunal discussions on issues that affect the day-to-day life of the people and concurrently those that concern substantive issues, both contributing to a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem.

    [04] BUNDESTAG PRESIDENT - CYPRUS QUESTION

    President of the German Parliament Bundestag Norbert Lammert believes that there must be progress towards the resolution of the question of Cyprus, something that will benefit the country and the European Union.

    Speaking after a meeting with House President Demetris Christofias, he said they discussed problems which the current EU presidency, Germany, will have to tackle in the next six months and efforts to settle the Cyprus problem.
