  • [01] SPOKESMAN - SECURITY - CYPRUS

    Security issues are part of an overall agreement in the settlement of the Cyprus question, said here Monday Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou.

    Invited to comment on statements by British Foreign Secretary David Miliband that Britain is waiting for the two sides in Cyprus to reach agreement and subsequently it will see how to facilitate the talks, Stephanou said we have a position on this.

    It is not our issue to interpret what Mr. Miliband says. It is clear that security issues, which are included in matters under the issue of guarantees, are part of an overall Cyprus settlement, Stephanou added.

    Turkey insists that Ankara should retain its role as one of three guarantor powers (the other two being Greece and Britain). The Greek Cypriot side objects to this.

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have been engaged in direct negotiations since September last year with a view to reach a settlement of the problem of Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.

    [02] CYPRUS - EP ELECTIONS

    More than 500,000 Cypriots, in addition to some 6,000 nationals of other European Union members, will go to the polls on Saturday to elect six Euro MPs who will represent the Republic of Cyprus at the European Parliament.

    The six seats are being contested by 47 candidates, most of whom represent the six parliamentary parties, while the rest running as independent or for other political movements.

    The total number of Cypriot voters in Cyprus is 526.060 and according to official figures, voters in the Nicosia district reach 209.392, Famagusta district 28.616, Larnaka district 86.764, Limassol district 144.367, Pafos district 47.293 and voters abroad 9.628.
