  • [01] UN - PARTIES
  • [02] AIR CRASH - POSTHUMOUS AWARD

  • [01] UN - PARTIES

    Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot political party leaders and their representatives were briefed on the Cyprus issue on Wednesday by Michael Moller, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and UNFICYP Chief of Mission.

    A joint communique issued at the end of their regular meeting at Ledra Palace in the buffer zone, under the auspices of the Slovak embassy, and read by Slovakias Ambassador to Cyprus Anna Turenicova said the leaders evaluated their bicommunal activities and initiatives during the past year in the process of rapprochement.

    In the second part of the meeting, the leaders have been briefed about the discussion on the Cyprus issue in the Security Council in December 2007 by Mr. Moller, and exchanged views on this issue with him, Turenicova added.

    The next meeting will be held on 19 March, at 1030 Ledra Palace.

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

    [02] AIR CRASH - POSTHUMOUS AWARD

    An air steward, who tried desperately to save an HELIOS aircraft from crashing in August 2005, will receive a posthumous award, following a decision by the US-based Flight Safety Foundation (FSF).

    The award will be received by Andreas Prodromous father during a special ceremony in late March in the village of Agros, to mark the establishment in Cyprus of a branch of the Flight Safety Foundation of Southeastern Europe.

    Speaking to CNA, the Greek investigator into the air crash, which killed all 121 passengers and crew on board on a mountain north of Athens, Akrivos Tsolakis said the FSF had accepted his proposal to honour Prodromou for his brave efforts to save the fatal Boeing 737-300, which left Larnaca for Prague, via Athens on 14 August 2005.

    Having completed my investigations into the cause of the crash, I informed the Cypriot authorities of my intention to give Cyprus a boost in flight safety matters with the establishment of a local branch of the FSFSE, he said, adding that this will highlight Cyprus location as a regional centre for air safety in the Eastern Mediterranean.
