    Israel maintains a balanced position of principles on the Cyprus issue, President of the Cyprus House of Representatives Marios Garoyian said after a meeting with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, adding that there is room for improvement on the political, economic and cultural front.

    We had a really constructive discussion, it was a very useful and helpful meeting. We discussed the latest developments in the Cyprus problem, the Middle-East issue and other international concerns, Garoyian added.

    Garoyian said Israel maintains a balanced position on the Cyprus issue, based on a policy of principles which is expressed by the United Nations and other fora. We all need to look at some things from a different angle and there is room for improvement in our bilateral ties, he added.

    [02] HOUSE - RESOLUTION ON FAMAGUSTA

    The House of Representatives has unanimously approved a resolution calling on Turkey to exhibit the necessary will for the return of the fenced off area of the Turkish occupied town of Famagusta to its legitimate owners, on the basis of the 1979 High Level Agreement and the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council.

    This, the resolution pointed out, would be a gesture of good will and an actual contribution to the efforts for the solution of the Cyprus issue.

    Acting House President Dina Akkelidou recalled the relevant UN Security Council resolutions 550/1984 and 789/1992, which relate to Varosha, the fenced off area of Famagusta town, on the eastern coast.

    Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmed Aboul Gheit has been received in Nicosia by President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias, whom he briefed on the situation in the Middle East and listened to his views on the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking after the meeting, the Egyptian Minister said ``it was a very warm meeting,`` and that he conveyed to President Christofias ``the greetings and regards and support from President Mubarak, Egypt and the Egyptian people.``

    ``I briefed him on the situation in the Middle East and the current situation between the Palestinians and the Israelis. I listened to his views on how he intends to pursue establishing understanding with the Turkish Cypriots and to find a way out from the current situation,`` he added.
