  • [01] AUSTRIAN PRESIDENT CYPRIOT AMBASSADOR

    Cyprus new Ambassador to Austria, Marios Lysiotis, has presented his credentials to the Austrian Federal President Heinz Fischer.

    According to an official press release, the Austrian President reaffirmed the excellent level of bilateral relations, reflected in his official visit to Cyprus in May last year.

    Lysiotis briefed Fischer on recent developments in the Cyprus problem, and particularly on the beginning of direct negotiations, aimed at the reunification of Cyprus, which has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion. He also thanked Fischer for the consistent support of Austria towards a viable and functional settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    [02] ECJ - CYPRUS - TELECOMS

    The European Commission (EC) has decided to refer Cyprus and Poland to the European Court of Justice on infringement cases of EU Telecoms rules.

    According to a press release by the EC, the Cypriot case involves a failure to properly apply the procedure for granting rights to install facilities for the mobile sector on public property or to adopt additional measures to enable their correct implementation.

    Cyprus has not replied to the reasoned opinion sent by the Commission in February 2008, the press release adds.

    [03] EXCAVATIONS - COMPLETION

    The Department of Antiquities has announced the completion of the second excavation season by the University of Manchester team, under the directorship of Dr Lindy Crewe at Kissonerga-Skalia settlement.

    According to an official announcement, the second season of excavations at the EarlyMiddle Bronze Age settlement of Kissonerga-Skalia was carried out. The village of Kissonerga near Paphos has previously yielded archaeological evidence dating from the very first Neolithic occupation of Cyprus and also an important Chalcolithic settlement but this is the first time that a research project has extended the prehistoric settlement of Kissonerga into the Bronze Age. Evidence from the pottery and architectural styles from the first season had indicated that occupation around Kissonerga extended into the second millennium BC, before abandonment around 1700 BC.

    The test trenches of the first season in 2007 had revealed the presence of preserved houses and other structures of the Early-Middle Cypriot Bronze Age (from 24001700 BC) and during 2008 the aim was to further extend these trenches to expose more of the settlement.
