  • [01] CYPRUS MILITARY EXERCISE

    National Guard Commander, Lieutenant General Constantinos Bisbikas, assured that he will continue to work tirelessly and modestly to increase the operational readiness of the National Guard.

    Bisbikas made the statement while announcing that the National Guard (Cyprus army) annual military manoeuvres, code-named ``Nikiforos``, will be held from 9-14 October.

    Nikiforos is a wide-scale manoeuvre, directed by the General Command of the National Guard. Formations and all groups of the National Guard participate in the manouevres as well as thousands of reservists and militiamen.

    [02] CY PILOTS WORK STOPPAGE

    Cyprus Airways pilots went on an impromptu work stoppage on Friday to protest the abrupt indefinite suspension by the national carrier of a colleague, affecting the airlines afternoon flights.

    In statements to CNA, press spokesman for the pilots union PASIPY George Charalambous, said that the work stoppage, from 1400 until 2000 (1100-1700 GMT), was decided after a provocative action by Cyprus Airways to suspend a colleague without explaining the reasons behind its decision.

    He said this was the icing on the cake together with the longstanding problems the national carrier is facing.

    Charalambous said that all afternoon flights including those to Athens and London will be affected.
