  • [01] SPOKESMAN TURKEY ASSESSMENT

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said that the Greek Cypriot side is ready for all scenarios regarding the assessment of Turkeys compliance with its EU obligations, coming December at the European Council.

    Stephanou said that the strategic goal of the government of Cyprus is to exploit the opportunity ahead of the December Summit, so that Turkey changes its stance and cooperates for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    In statements Sunday in Larnaca, the Spokesman noted that Cyprus will make its decisions as to the position it will support at the December EU Council, judging by developments until then.

    [02] MORFOU ANTI-OCCUPATION MARCH

    The Turkish occupied Municipality of Morfou organised Sunday an anti-occupation march in the presence of President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias, members of foreign parliaments and other Cypriot and foreign officials.

    Among the officials who participated were ten British MPs from all British parliamentary parties, three British MEPs, the Greek Ambassador in Nicosia, representatives from the Parliaments of Slovenia, France and Malta, as well as Mayors from twin towns with Morfou.

    Addressing the event, President of the House of Representative Marios Garoyian has said that every year, from this very spot next to the barbed wire which encircles our ancestral land, the motherland, the people of Morfou declare their unwavering decision to continue their struggle until the blessed day when they return to their homes.

    Referring to the Cyprus issue and Turkey`s intransigent stance at the Cyprus talks, he said that ``the period of tolerance has come to an end``, adding that ``any further tolerance of this kind of behavior by the Turkish side leads to our humiliation, as well as to the humiliation of the European Union and the United Nations``.

    [03] VOLUNTEER DOCTORS CYPRUS INDONESIA

    Members of the Organisation `Volunteer Doctors Cyprus` will be traveling to Indonesia to offer medical assistance, carrying also medical supplies, for those who were affected by the disastrous earthquake, which recently hit the areas of West Sumatra.

    Speaking to the press, President of the Organisation `Volunteer Doctors Cyprus`, dentist George Georgiou, said that a team of the Organisation will stay for one week in Indonesia, to offer medical help. The team comprises also pathologist George Makrigiannis, Nurse Mary Vamvakopoulou, and Cyprus News Agency journalist Ralli Papageorgiou.

    Meanwhile, a second team of the Organisation, comprising members of the Board, dentist Olga Sophocleous and photo reporter Katia Christodoulou as well as contractor Petros Ioannou, is already in Kenya to supervise the construction of an orphanage, the work of which began last August.
