  • [01] FM REHN MEETING

    Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou has met the EU Commissioner for Enlargement, Olli Rehn, in the framework of regular contact between the two sides. During the meeting, they reviewed the latest developments in the UN-led direct talks to solve the Cyprus problem, currently underway between the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, with a view to finding a negotiated settlement that will reunite the country, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    Kyprianou and Rehn also discussed the course of implementation of the financial regulation to help develop further the Turkish Cypriot community.

    In Brussels, the Cypriot Minister represented Cyprus at the EU General Affairs Council.

    [02] PRESIDENT 2008 TOP ATHLETES

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias has stressed that the state will continue and intensify its efforts to support any coherent planning towards real progress in athletics.

    Addressing the award-giving ceremony of Cyprus top athletes for 2008, organised here Monday by the Cyprus Sportswriters Union, President Christofias said that 2008 was probably the most important year in the history of Cypriot sport. He added that a series of special successes and international distinctions achieved by our male and female athletes, both in individual and team athletic events, is testimony to this.

    These successes have caused feelings of emotion to all of us and filled us with pride, he pointed out. He also noted that it has been proven in practice, once again, how important the role of athletic successes is as far as promoting Cyprus is concerned.
