  • [01] HOUSE PRESIDENT SHIP - LIMASSOL

    The Government is taking all the necessary steps to overcome the issue of a Cypriot flagged ship, that has docked at Limassol Port, House President Marios Garoyian has said. It has been reported that the Russian-owned ship is carrying arms that originated from Iran. As a result, it was forced by an American military vessel to dock at Limassol Port.

    Speaking here Sunday, Garoyian noted that the issue requires patience, and careful handlings. For that reason, I would not like to say in detail what has to be done, he said, adding that the less we talk about this issue in public, the better.

    I know that the Government is making all the necessary moves. And not only the Government, but also several other people are trying to help in order the problem to be solved in the best possible way for Cyprus, he added.

    [02] T/C MEMBER OF CMP - OLGAC

    Any information given to the UN Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) in Cyprus is on voluntary basis, and as such the Committee is obliged to keep it confidential, Gulden Plumer Kucuk, the Turkish Cypriot member of the Committee has said.

    Speaking to CNA on Friday, and asked to comment on the information that she will contact Attila Olgac, the Turkish actor who confessed the killing of ten Greek Cypriots during the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, Kucuk referred to the announcement, issued by CMP last Tuesday.

    Kucuk also said that the Committee, during its last meeting on Thursday, has evaluated the information published in the media. The information to the Committee is given on a voluntary basis, and we guarantee to keep this information confidential, she said.
