    The Australian Government will donate 10,000 Australian dollars to the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) in Cyprus, as a contribution to the CMP project on the exhumation, identification and return of remains of missing persons, which was launched in August 2006, CMP announced today. The Australian Special Envoy for Cyprus, Jim Short, advised the CMP of the grant during his visit today to the CMP Anthropological laboratory in the United Nations Protected Area in Nicosia.

    Commending the work of the CMP, Short said ``that the grant was made on humanitarian grounds and to assist reconciliation efforts in Cyprus.`` The CMP expressed its gratitude to the Australian Government for its generosity, which will help its bi-communal teams of scientists to continue their work throughout the island on behalf of the families of missing from both communities.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied 37 per cent of its territory. The CMP comprises three members, one from each community and a UN appointed official.
