  • [01] ACTING PRESIDENT - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    Acting President of the Republic of Cyprus, President of the House of Representative Marios Garoyian said on Thursday that the Greek Cypriot side was interested in following the right course in efforts to solve the Cyprus problem, based on the principles and values of international law, the EU and UN resolutions.

    Garoyian noted that the policy of the Greek Cypriot side was not affected by the so-called elections in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus, and that he did not agree with the issuing of a joint statement by the leaders of the two communities, which would ``contain the so-called convergences.``

    ``I have reiterated many times that a joint statement should be a general announcement,`` he said, adding that ``in no case can we accept an announcement that will in a direct or indirect way refer to an interim solution, or even to procedures that may be misinterpreted by the international community and create fait accompli.``

    He added that ``our position is and remains crystal clear that there can be neither convergences nor anything else in this joint statement.``

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

    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, namely President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, have been engaged in UN-led direct negotiations since September 2008, with an aim to reunify the island.

    [02] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - BRUSSELS - EUROPEAN COUNCIL

    ‘he President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias arrived on Wednesday in Brussels to take part in the Spring European Council to be held on March 25 and 26.

    During the Council, the leaders of the European Union are expected to agree on the general framework of the Union`s new strategy for jobs and growth, namely EU2020 strategy.

    They will also review the efforts undertaken by the European Union and its member states in order to address the current financial crisis.

    [03] IACOVOU - JOINT STATEMENT - LIMNITIS

    Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou said on Thursday that the possibility of issuing a joint statement by President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat would be discussed during their next meeting, on March 30, in the context of talks to solve the Cyprus problem.

    He also said that the matter would also be on the agenda of the next National Council, top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus problem, on April 7.

    To questions concerning the Limnitis crossing point, Iacovou said all documents have been signed and the project should be completed within four months.

    Asked if President Christofias and Talat would be present when the works begin on March 29, Iacovou said he would be meeting the UN later on Thursday and any decisions would be announced.
