  • [01] ELDERS CYPRUS ISSUE

    The group of Elders, Desmond Tutu, Lakhdar Brahimi and Jimmy Carter who visited Cyprus on 8-10 December observed that the UN-led talks for a settlement to the Cyprus problem ``are making slow but steady progress.``

    During their stay on the island, the Elders met with Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, while they held a public meeting to discuss issues of trust and truth-seeking in divided societies, a press release issued today by the Elders Foundation writes.

    Elder`s Chair, Archbishop Desmond Tutu said ``Cyprus needs an honest and open dialogue about the past if people are to walk together into a shared future,`` pointing out however that this ``is not easy.``

    ``Reconciliation is a process, and it takes a long time,`` he added and went on ``What I have seen this time on the island makes me more hopeful. I think Cyprus can be a beacon of hope for the whole world.``

    [02] EP PRESIDENT CLIMATE CHANGE EU AID

    President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek has called upon the leaders of the EU to determine the funding for the aid required by developing countries to help them deal with climate change.

    In his address at the European Council, Buzek said that today, the most important policy issue currently facing us is climate change.

    ``This is true for this meeting as well. Finding a solution in Copenhagen is not an easy task. Time is against us. The world`s eyes are on Copenhagen and on true global leadership. We are looking for swift, binding, global decisions``, he said.

    Buzek recalled that the EU has called on the developed countries to reduce emissions by 25 to 40% by 2020, and expect developing countries to achieve cuts of between 15 and 30%.
