    Minister of Foreign Affairs Markos Kyprianou will be received on Monday by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

    According to an official press release, Kyprianou, who is in Lebanon today, will also meet his counterpart Ali Al-Shami.

    Kyprianou, who was in Kuwait Sunday on an official visit, was received by the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah. The Cypriot FM conveyed to the Emir of Kuwait an invitation on behalf of President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias to visit Cyprus, which he accepted.

    Kyprianou also met with Prime Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Nasser Al Mohammed Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah and held official consultations with his counterpart Dr. Mohammad Ál Sabah Al Salem Al Sabah, whom he briefed on recent developments regarding the Cyprus issue.

    The Minister of Kuwait expressed his countrys full support towards ongoing efforts to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem, based on the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

    During their meeting they reviewed bilateral relations and examined ways to further develop their cooperation in the political, economic and commercial fields.

    The two Ministers discussed relations between the EU and the Gulf countries. The Minister of Kuwait expressed the gratitude of his country to Cyprus efforts to enhance those relations.

    They also discussed other international and regional issues, in particular the question of Palestine.

    President Christofias and the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Dervis Eroglu are engaged in talks with a view to find a negotiated settlement that will reunite Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.


    The government is committed to a political settlement that will terminate the Turkish occupation and stop the illegal influx of Turkish settlers in the northern occupied part of Cyprus, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has stressing, adding that the solution must also free the country of foreign supervision and secure human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Cypriots.

    In a speech at the funeral of Argyros Achilleos, killed during the 1974 Turkish invasion, whose remains have been located in a mass grave and identified with the DNA method, Stephanou said that we remain committed to the principles and the basis of a settlement. We continue to be consistent with a settlement of a bizonal, bicommunal federation with political equality as described by the UN, and we advocate one state with a single sovereignty, a single international personality and a single citizenship.

    We are working for a functional and viable settlement on the basis of the international and European law principles, UN relevant resolutions and the High Level Agreements of 1977 and 1979, he added.
