  • [01] OVERSEAS CYPRIOTS - WORLD CONGRESS

    Cypriots, living abroad, will gather here this week to discuss the latest developments in the Cyprus problem and be briefed on the issue by the islands political and religious leadership.

    The 16th Annual Conference of the Central Council of the World Federation for Overseas Cypriots (POMAK) and the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA), and the Conference of the Executive Council of the World Organisation for Young Overseas Cypriots (NEPOMAK) will be held in Nicosia, from 24-28 August.

    President Demetris Christofias will address the opening ceremony on Monday evening.

    The opening ceremony will be addressed by the House President Marios Garoyan, the Archbishop of the Church of Cyprus Chrysostomos II, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Markos Kyprianou, the Presidents of POMAK, PSEKA, and NEPOMAK Haris Sophoclides, Philip Christopher and Christos Karaolis respectively, the President and the World Council of Hellenes (SAE) Stefanos Tamvakis, and the Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Theodoros Kassimis.

    During the conference, representatives of several Ministries will brief delegates on issues that concern them. President of the Committee of Cyprus Occupied Municipalities, Mayor of the Turkish occupied city of Famagusta Alexis Galanos, President of AHEPA Nicholas Karacostas and the American Senator Robert Menendez will also deliver a speech during the conference. Participants will also be briefed on media and communications related issues by Eleonora Gavrielidou, Director of the Press and Information Office (PIO).

    On Tuesday, President Christofias and his spouse Elsi will host a reception at the Presidential Palace, in honour of the conference attendees.

    This years meeting takes place as President Christofias prepares to begin the second round of UN-led negotiations with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, in early September. The government has said that some progress has been achieved at the talks, which began a year ago, but not sufficient. The objective of the talks is to find a negotiated settlement, acceptable to both communities, based on past agreements which provide for a bizonal bicommunal federation -UN resolutions and the acquis communautaire.
