    The Republic of Cyprus celebrates the 49th anniversary since independence and will mark the occasion with a military parade.

    The Defence Ministry has announced that infantry units, artillery and naval forces, members of the Greek military contingent - stationed in Cyprus in accordance with the 1960 Treaty of Establishment of the Republic - the police, the fire brigade, the forestry and the civil defence forces will participate in the parade.

    President Demetris Christofias will take the salute of the parade, in the presence of the political, military and religious leadership.

    On behalf of the Greek government and after an invitation by the Cypriot Defence Minister, his counterpart, Evangelos Meimarakis will be at the military parade.

    [02] DEFENCE MINISTER - EU MEETING

    Maritime surveillance is of strategic importance to Cyprus, Minister of Defence, Costas Papacostas, has stressed, speaking at the informal meeting of EU Defence Ministers in Sweden, which took place between 28 and 29 of September.

    According to a Ministry announcement, Papacostas said that the issue of maritime surveillance has a strategic importance for Cyprus because annually a large number of ships come in and out of the Republics designated research and rescue area.

    Besides security matters, humanitarian issues are also of concern. Cyprus unreservedly advocates maritime surveillance, he said.

    Regarding civilian-military cooperation, the Cypriot Minister voted in favour of safeguarding the institutional framework that secures the autonomous decisions of the EU.

    Papacostas congratulated the commanders and the staff serving in the Atlanta operation, among them two Cypriots, on their difficult and dangerous job.

    [03] CYPRIOT MP PACE EDUCATION

    The Council of Europe, as a defender of human rights, has an important role in the dissemination of cultural education, as well as the preservation and support of cultural diversity in Europe, said Cypriot MP Fidias Sarikas, speaking at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) during its session about cultural education.

    Sarikas pointed out that art and culture can enrich education and can contribute, through many forms of creative expression, to personal spiritual development and social cohesion.

    He added that cultural education should be included in other educational sectors and activities, so that both art and culture become accessible and tangible concepts for younger generations.

    Sarikas also said that the promotion of institutions and regulations relating to cultural education can greatly help in addressing various social problems such as racism, xenophobia, discrimination based on ethnic origin, social marginalization, school failure or even violence in schools.
