    The US will offer any assistance Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and the Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat may need, in their efforts to find a negotiated settlement in Cyprus, US Senator Richard Durbin has said.

    Speaking after a meeting with President Christofias at the Presidential Palace, Durbin noted that the US have not a specific offer to give, but it is up to the two sides to decide what that help might be. We are going from here to Athens and then to Ankara to encourage both leaders and both governments to join us in this offer for assistance, he added. The US official pointed out that President Christofias is showing exceptional courage in moving forward with the peace negotiations to try and bring Cyprus back together, and expressed hope the people of Cyprus supports the two leaders.

    This is a historic opportunity and I wish them (the two leaders) all the success, he said, noting that it takes great courage for them to keep working. Pointing out that this is not an official visit to Cyprus and that he is not here as a representative of President Obama, Durbin said that he will stress to the US President as well as the Secretary of State that the US will consider this (the process for the solution of the Cyprus problem), as an opportunity of history that we should not miss. We should do everything we can if we are asked to call on to make this work, he added.


    Two members of the Cyprus House of Representatives Christos Stylianides and Athina Kyriakidou depart on Wednesday for Vienna, to participate in the 8th Winter Meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), on 19-20 February 2009.

    According to an official announcement, the Cypriot members of the House and members of the Cyprus delegation to the Assembly will participate in the Joint sessions of the three General Committees, the Committee on Political Affairs and Security, the Committee on Economic Affairs, Science, Technology and Environment and the Committee on Democracy, Human Rights and Humanitarian Questions.

    Stylianides will also participate in the Standing Committee Meeting, which will discuss the OSCE missions and the Parliamentary Assemblys future activities. The Joint Session of the three General Committees will focus on the new initiatives on European security architecture put forward by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, as well as French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
