  • [01] GAROYIAN - EU - TURKEY

    President of the House of Representatives Marios Garoyian said on Monday that Cyprus` partners in the EU cannot continue to caress Turkey and implement a double standard policy.

    Commenting on the second letter sent by Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat to the UN Secretary General, Garoyian said it ``once again reaffirms the longstanding aims of Turkish policy.``

    ``Mr. Talat is insisting on virgin birth, on the Annan plan, on two peoples, two states, two different religions, on the unacceptable Turkish demands for the continuation of the guarantees, but at the same time is concealing the huge issue of settlers in Cyprus,`` he added.

    Garoyian pointed out that ``certainly with such positions these negotiations cannot move forward and I understand the reactions of President Christofias, who with his proposals, his positions, is proving every day the willingness of our side to reach a viable and functional solution the soonest possible, that will safeguard the interests and rights of the whole of the Cyprus people.``

    [02] SLOVAK MINISTER - CYPRUS

    Deputy Prime Minister for Legislation and Minister of Justice of the Slovak Republic, Stefan Harabin, has expressed his countrys support towards the UN Security Council resolutions on Cyprus and underlined that Turkish troops, which occupy part of Cyprus since 1974, must withdraw.

    The Slovak official, who met here Monday Cypriot Minister of Justice and Public Order, Kypros Chrysostomides, said that Slovakia is in favour of the implementation of the UNSC resolutions on Cyprus, the withdrawal of the Turkish occupation army and is against the illegal exploitation of properties in the northern Turkish occupied part of Cyprus.

    Harabin added he is well informed about the Cyprus issue and the thousands of Turkish soldiers, who occupy the northern part of Cyprus.

    The Slovak Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice noted that Slovakia, as an independent country but also in the past as part of Czechoslovakia, has always been supporting positions of principle regarding the Cyprus issue as well as the territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus.

    [03] CYPRUS AIRWAYS - FLIGHTS

    Cyprus Airways have announced the cancellation of their flights to and from Athens, Thessaloniki, and Heraklion - Rhodes scheduled for December 10th, due to the 24-hours strike that will take place on that particular day in Greece.

    A Cyprus Airways press release says that air traffic controllers of Greece will also participate in the strike, which will affect air traffic in all Greek airports.

    In total, 12 flights are being cancelled, eight to and from Athens, two to and from Thessaloniki, and two to and from Heraklion - Rhodes.
