  • [01] GAROYIAN - TURKEY - CYPRUS ISSUE

    President of the House of Representatives Marios Garoyian has said that Turkey must respect international law, thus allowing the achievement of a viable, just and functional solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Garoyian, who received Tuesday a delegation of Egyptian journalists, currently visiting Cyprus, said that the Greek Cypriot side pursues a solution of the Cyprus problem based on the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the values and principles of the EU.

    He also noted that Ankara has the key for the solution of the Cyprus problem, stressing that Turkey ``must respect international law, thus allowing, through direct negotiations, the achievement of a viable, just and functional solution of the Cyprus problem that would reunify Cyprus, its people, its institutions and its economy``.

    The House President expressed his appreciation for Egypts stance regarding the Cyprus issue emphasizing on the positions held by his Egyptian counterpart.

    [02] SPOKESMAN - SHIP

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said that the Republic of Cyprus is carefully handling the issue regarding the Cypriot-flagged ship Monchegorsk, which is anchored near Limassol Port.

    Asked if it would be wise to send the ship to another EU member state, Stephanou said ``the wisest and most politically correct move was to continue to be as responsible as we have been so far and this is a stance which, I must say, has received positive comments from the international community.``

    He added that this shows that the Republic of Cyprus is maintaining a responsible stance, in the framework of international law and UN resolutions.

    It has been alleged that the Cypriot-flagged ship, which originated from Iran, was carrying arms and it was forced by a US military vessel to dock at Limassol Port to have its cargo inspected, in order to establish whether there has been a breach of UN Security Council sanctions, as claimed.

    [03] RAF AKROTIRI AIR CRASH

    The British Bases in Cyprus announced that an investigation will take place to determine the cause and circumstances under which a Harrier aircraft from 20 Squadron crashed into the runway at RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus

    The press release says that during a training flight on Monday 9th February 2009, a Harrier aircraft from 20 Squadron crashed into the runway at RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus and both aircrew ejected from the aircraft and have been discharged from hospital following treatment.

    There were no other military or civilian personnel involved in the accident it is clarified. It is added that an air crash investigation team will be assembled and a full investigation conducted to determine the facts and further details will be released on completion of the investigation.

    The investigation will seek to determine the circumstances and cause of the crash and it is inappropriate at this time to speculate any further. The RAF Harriers are based in RAF Wittering in the UK and are currently on a training detachment at RAF Akrotiri.
