  • [01] CHINESE AMBASSADOR - UNSC FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS - CYPRUS QUESTION

    Chinas Ambassador to Cyprus, Zhao Yali confirmed that the five permanent members of the UN Security Council insist on the implementation of the July 8 Agreement, rejecting reports that one of them is backing out of this position.

    The statement was made by General Secretary of the Ecologists-Environmentalists Movement, member of the House of Representatives George Perdikis after a meeting with Zhao and comes a day after the Cyprus News Agency reported that the five ambassadors met on Wednesday with UN Secretary Generals Special Representative Michael Moller where they reviewed the latest developments on the Cyprus problem, following last weeks meeting between President Tassos Papadopoulos and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    What he assured is that the five permanent members insist on the implementation of the July 8 Agreement and hope that in mid October, following the meetings President Papadopoulos and Mehmet Ali Talat will have with the UN Secretary-General, the July 8 procedure will further proceed, said Perdikis.

    He also said the ambassador rejected reports that one of the five has second thoughts on the implementation of the UN brokered agreement.

    Perdikis pointed out that from his meeting with the embassies of Russia, the US and China, it seems that all acknowledge that the obstacle in the implementation of a number of agreed measures, is the Turkish army.

    The meeting with the Chinese ambassador was held in the framework of promoting the joint proposal of the Ecologists Environmentalists Movement and the Turkish Cypriot New Cyprus party for demilitarization of Nicosia and the return of Famagusta to its lawful inhabitants, according to UN resolutions.

    [02] MARITIME CYPRUS 2007 CONFERENCE

    The new image of international shipping is the focal point of the Maritime Cyprus 2007 Conference, to be held in Limassol on September 23-26.

    This is the tenth conference since the meeting was established in 1989 and according to the organisers the international shipping community awaits it with great anxiety since it is considered one of the three most important maritime events worldwide.

    Shipping contributes 4% of the GDP, while the cash inflow to the state coffers from the shipping industry in 2005 amounted to 500 million Cyprus pounds. Shipping authorities in Cyprus believe that there is a need for a Shipping General Directorate to facilitate the decision-making process on maritime matters.
