  • [01] CYPRUS TALKS ECONOMY

    Economy issues are likely to be discussed during Wednesdays meeting between of the leaders of the two communities on the island.

    President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat will meet in the United Nations Protected Area (UNPA) of Nicosia on Wednesday, 9 December at 1100 a.m.

    Speaking after their last meeting on 3 December, UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alexander Downer said the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus had a very constructive session where they had a broad discussion, in the framework of the ongoing UN-led direct negotiations for a solution to the Cyprus problem. They focused on the citizenship question and other issues.

    Downer also said the representatives of the leaders, who were going to meet in the meantime, would be talking about the economy and this was likely to be the issue when the two would meet on Wednesday.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    The leaders of the two communities have been engaged in UN-led direct negotiations since September 2008, with an aim to reunify the island.

    [02] BELGIUM TURKEY- CYPRUS ISSUE

    Most politicians in Belgium believe that Turkey cannot join the EU, if it does not resolved issues such as the Aegean, the Cyprus issue and the recognition of the Armenian genocide, President of the Belgium Senate Armand De Decker has said.

    Speaking during a meeting with President of the Greek Parliament Philippos Petsalnikos, de Decker agreed with the Greek positions on the Cyprus issue and the issue of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), and noted that parliamentary diplomacy should be activated to resolve them. For that reason, the Belgian official has invited Petsalnikos to visit Belgium.

    During the meeting, the President of the Greek Parliament stressed the need for a solution in Cyprus, based on European principles and values and the implementation of the acquis communautaire.
