  • [01] AUSTRALIA - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    If all sides show good will it is possible to have a Cyprus settlement soon, Australian Special Representative for Cyprus Jim Short has said.

    In statements at London Greek Radio (LGR), Short said the main aim now is the reactivation of the 8 July Agreement that will allow the resumption of substantive talks between the two communities.

    Short refrained from commenting on the singing of the agreement of strategic partnership between Britain and Turkey, but underlined that from his visits to Washington, Ankara, Athens and London he has the impression that there has been now a change of policy and that no one is seeking to upgrade and recognize the Turkish Cypriot pseudostate.

    Short said that Australia continues to persist to the implementation of the UN resolutions on Cyprus.

    [02] CHRISTOFIAS - PORTUGAL

    President of the House of Representatives Demetris Christofias received Portuguese Ambassador to Cyprus Antonio Jorge Jacob Carvalho, to whom he expressed disappointment regarding the current deadlock in the Cyprus problem.

    He said this is due to the refusal of the Turkish side to implement a UN agreement, reached in July last year between the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, and the Turkish aim to upgrade the Turkish Cypriot regime in the occupied areas of the island.

    According to an official press release, Christofias reaffirmed the sincere will and readiness of the Greek Cypriot side to work towards the implementation of the agreement, which would lead to substantive talks aimed at reaching a solution of a bizonal, bicommunal federation.

    [03] FOREIGN MINISTER - LONDON

    Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas has said that Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou Marcoullis will visit London.

    Palmas said that during her visit Marcoullis will visit Cypriot organisations in the UK but he could not say at this stage whether she would have any other contacts.

    The Spokesman said that due to the signing of an agreement of strategic partnership between Britain and Turkey, a Cyprus-British Forum, that was scheduled to take place this weekend, as part of the London-Nicosia structured dialogue, has been postponed.

    [04] CYPRUS - EU - UNEMPLOYMENT

    Cyprus recorded the third best performance in the EU regarding unemployment, with 3.7% of the active population, during September 2007, while in the sub-categories it had the best performance in unemployment of males.

    According to Eurostat figures, unemployment in Cyprus in September was 3.0% for men compared to 3.1% in August, and 4.5% for women in September, compared to 4.7% in August.

    Furthermore, unemployment of young persons under 25 years of age was 8.4%, while the EU average was 15.1%.
