  • [01] CYPRUS TALKS MEETING

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat will meet here Tuesday, in the framework of the direct negotiations with a view to reach a settlement of the problem of Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion in 1974.

    The meeting will begin at 1000 local time and will take place in the official residence of the UNFICYP Chief of Mission Taye-Brook Zerihoun.

    Speaking after the last meeting on March 4, UN Secretary-General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer had said that the leaders had a substantial discussion about the economy, the economic chapter, and various aspects of that.

    During Tuesdays meeting, the leaders, according to Downer, will discuss the economy, but also European Union matters.

    [02] PRESIDENT - CYPRUS ISSUE

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has said he is committed to working very hard for a solution of the Cyprus problem, pledging to seek what is feasible and not what is desired.

    Addressing an event, on Monday evening to mark the 60th anniversary since the foundation of the Neocleous Lyceum, President Christofias, a graduate of the Lyceum, expressed the wish that a political settlement can be achieved during his term in office.

    President Christofias pledged to do his utmost to achieve "the feasible and prevent the continuation of chasing the desirable, which, as he pointed out, "has led us from bad to worse".

    The goals of the desirable outcome are noble but the desirable solution has proven a lot of times to be not feasible, he noted.

    He expressed the wish that one day Cyprus will be reunified, on the basis of principles.

    I wish that one day we can live with our Turkish Cypriot compatriots without any occupation or foreign interventions, he went on to add.

    [03] PAPHOS YACHT DEAD POLICEMAN MISSING WOMAN

    One policeman died and a Russian woman was missing as a yacht faced rough seas when it was trying to approach Paphos harbour in the early hours here Tuesday.

    Police Spokesman Michalis Katsounotos confirmed that Andreas Georgiou, 30, from Limassol, who was involved in the rescue effort drowned when the inflatable raft he was on together with another policeman overturned. Georgiou was thrown off the raft while the second policeman managed to hold onto the engine and was later rescued.

    The port police had rushed to the scene after a 30 year-old Russian man had swam to shore calling for help when his yacht had overturned west of Cyprus, as it was heading for harbour. The mans two children, aged 10 months and three years were rescued but the 31-year old mother was still missing. The family had set sail from Turkey.

    Police chief Michalis Papageorgiou and Justice and Public Order Minister Loucas Louca went to Paphos early morning to inspect the scene and offer their condolences to the relatives of the late policeman, Katsounotos told journalists in Paphos.
