  • [01] PRESIDENTIAL COMMISSIONER - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    There has been progress at the negotiations for the Cyprus problem which however does not satisfy the Greek Cypriot side, since it has been expecting more progress, Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou has said.

    In statements to the London Greek Radio (LGR), as the first round of direct UN-led talks held between Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat has just wrapped up, Iacovou said that Christofias shares this view as well, and expressed hope that there will be a better spirit during the second round, so that the progress which we want is achieved.

    Iacovou, who is attending the talks as Christofias aide, said that despite the fact that many issues had been agreed during the preparation for the talks, Talat opened most issues from the beginning during the direct talks between the two leaders and so the whole process was delayed.

    [02] HELIOS AIR CRASH - RELATIVES OF VICTIMS - CANDLE LIGHTING

    Relatives of the victims of an air crash, in 2005, that killed all 121 persons on board, will light on Saturday night candles in all towns of the government controlled areas of Cyprus, in memory of their beloved ones.

    A press release issued by the Committee of relatives of the victims said the candles will be lit in Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paralimni at 2030 (1730 GMT).

    The relatives call on all those who honour the memory of the 121 victims to attend the ceremonies and light a candle, to keep their memory alive.

    The memorial service for the 121 victims will be held on Friday, August 14.
