    Leaders or representatives of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot political parties met here today at their regular meeting, in the UN-controlled buffer zone, and discussed the issue Cyprus cultural heritage and its protection, as proposed by the host party of todays meeting Greek Cypriot party for the Restructuring of the Centre.

    In a joint statement, issued after the meeting, read by Slovak Ambassador Anna Turenicova, the political parties condemn the destruction and the desecration of cultural and religious sites of all periods.

    We condemn the stealing of cultural artifacts or works of art and their illegal sale and trading. We also condemn vandalism against cultural sites, it said.

    Political parties call on all responsible persons to take all necessary measures to protect cultural property, restore sites and buildings and recover such treasures from home and abroad.

    [02] BRITISH RESERACHER - EATING DISORDERS

    Fake images of human body in the media, modern eating habits where food has been disembedded from social activities, as well as genes are some of the most important factors that lead to eating disorders today, according to a top British researcher on eating disorders.

    In an interview with the Cyprus News Agency, Janet Treasure, Professor of Psychiatry at Kings College, London and one of the top researchers about eating disorders worldwide, speaks about the causes of disorders like anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder, while at the same time explaining the best treatments for each of them.

    Treasure, who was in Cyprus for a series of seminars for the public and health professionals, points out the importance of setting a team of professionals, a pool of expertise for eating disorder who will help Cyprus deal with the problem.

    She maintains that eating disorders can be recognized in early stages when someone seems to have a paradoxical behavior about food, maybe avoiding meals, or not eating when going out with friends and yet seeming to be interested in food, perhaps in recipes. As she explains, sometimes anorexia is apparent because there is a lost of weight, but in bulimia there may not be loss of weight but someone could notice unusual behavior about food

    [03] HOUSE COMMITTEE - MISSING PERSONS

    The House Refugee Committee has been assured that the process of exhumation of remains of missing persons - at four places in Cyprus northern Turkish occupied areas and two in the southern government-controlled areas - will be intensified, Committee Chairman Aristophanis Georgiou has said.

    The Committee met behind closed doors to discuss the latest developments concerning the issue of missing persons and as Georgiou said it was briefed about the ongoing process, conducted with the Committee on Missing Persons. To date, the remains of 186 missing persons have been identified, of whom 44 are Turkish Cypriots, he said. Georgiou said that excavations have taken place at 309 places, but at 159 no skeleton remains have been found.

    He noted that during the coming months the results of scientific examination regarding 40 other cases of Greek Cypriot missing persons are expected to be ready.
