  • [01] BULGARIAN AND ROMANIAN FMs - KOSSOVO - CYPRUS

    Foreign Ministers of Bulgaria and Romania have stressed that any future recognition of Kossovo can by no means lead to the recognition of the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus.

    In statements to CNA, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Ivailo Kalfin and his Romanian counterpart Adrian Gioroianu underscored that the situation in Cyprus and the one in Kossovo are two entirely different matters, which cannot be linked.

    ``I would like to underline once again that the case of Kosovo is unique and in no way sets a precedent. We do not see any logic that could link the status of Kosovo with recognition of the occupied areas of Cyprus``, the Bulgarian Minister told CNA.

    His Romanian counterpart said that ``we do not see the result of the Kosovo status process as precedent for any other conflict and, in any case, the two situations are completely different``.

    [02] CYPRUS FM - EU - INFORMAL MEETING

    Cypriot Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou - Marcoullis underscored the importance of organising the 5th Informal Meeting of the Foreign Ministers of ten European Union Mediterranean countries in Cyprus, which begins tonight in the coastal town of Paphos.

    In statements to CNA Marcoullis, who will chair the meeting, said that apart from the important issues to be discussed during the two-day deliberations in Paphos, EU Foreign Ministers will be briefed about the Cyprus issue and get an insight into the situation in Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    Foreign Ministers of Cyprus, Slovenia, Greece, Malta, Romania, Bulgaria, France, Spain, Italy and Portugal will discuss regional and international issues. The agenda includes items such as the Middle East process, migration, natural disaster response mechanism, Kosovo and the establishment of a Mediterranean Union.

    [03] QATAR - CYPRUS QUESTION

    New Ambassador of Qatar to Cyprus Mubarak A. Al-Nassar reaffirmed the support of his country to UN resolutions on Cyprus, during a meeting he had Thursday with Cyprus House President Demetris Christofias.

    A House of Representatives press release said that Christofias briefed Al Nassar on the latest developments in the Cyprus question, underlining the responsibilities of the Turkish side for the lack of progress towards the settlement of the problem.

    [04] BAGHDATIS - AUSTRALIAN OPEN

    Cypriot tennis player Marcos Baghdatis advanced to the third round of the Australian Open after beating 3-2 set Russian Marat Safin (6-4,6-4,2-6,3-6,6-2).

    Baghdhatis slammed 4 aces and Safin 12. The 16th seeded Cypriot player produced 4 double faults and 53 unforced errors while his opponent produced no double faults and 57 unforced errors.
