  • [01] CYPRIOT FM - SPAIN - FRANCE

    Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou stressed that there can be no solution in Cyprus which does not conform to European principles and UN resolutions.

    The Minister advocated a wait and see approach as far as the positions the Turkish Cypriot side outlined at Wednesdays launch of direct negotiations for a solution, which reiterate long-standing Turkish positions for two states in Cyprus and the maintenance of Turkeys role as a guarantor power.

    It is incomprehensible to agree to a solution of the Cyprus issue which will not conform to European principles or which is not based on UN resolutions, Kyprianou said, in statements before departing for talks in Madrid with his Spanish counterpart.

    Commenting on yesterdays start of direct talks between President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, Kyprianou said Cyprus and the international community believe that problems can be resolved through dialogue.

    [02] CHILDRENS RIGHTS COMMISSIONER ENOC

    Cypriot Commissioner for Children`s Rights Leda Koursoumba outlined the basic areas of her priorities for 2008, which include children in care institutions, childrens participation rights in decision taking within the family, adoptions in Cyprus, children and the judicial system, the public secondary education schools regulations, and children with special needs.

    Speaking at the 12th European Network of Ombudspeople for Children (ENOC) annual conference in Dublin, Koursoumba expressed certainty that the conference would ``greatly contribute towards the realisation of our common vision, to make enjoyment of childrens rights a reality for every child in our respective countries.``

    Koursoumba referred to the institution of the Commissioner for Childrens Rights of the Republic of Cyprus, noting that she was appointed first Commissioner in August 2007 and officially assumed her duties in February 2008. She said ``the Office is now fully operating, though additional staff is expected to be recruited.``

    She furthermore referred to her mission, which is ``to protect and promote children`s rights,`` as well as the laws safeguarding children and the independence of the Commissioner.
