  • [01] CYPRUS PEACE TALKS CONTINUE

    President Demetris Christofias and the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Dervis Eroglu meet on Wednesday to continue their discussions on property, as part of the ongoing dialogue to find a negotiated settlement that will reunite Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    The property issue was also discussed by the advisors of the two leaders, George Iacovou and Kudret Ozersay on Friday.

    The leaders are scheduled to meet again on August 10.

    Speaking after last weeks meeting between the two leaders, Alexander Downer, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary General on Cyprus, said the atmosphere was very positive. They continued the discussions on property.``

    Asked about the course of the negotiations, Downer replied: This is one of those issues where the quality of the meetings inevitably varies from time to time, as you would expect in every single negotiation that ever takes place anywhere in the world.

    Peace talks began in September 2008 between President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat. Talks continue now with Eroglu, who succeeded Talat in April this year.

    Tomorrow he will have a tete-a-tete meeting with his Cypriot counterpart and hold bilateral discussions. The discussions will focus on Cypriot-Albanian relations, the Cyprus problem, EU-Albania relations and on international issues of mutual interest.

    During the visit Kyprianou and Metas will sign an Agreement on the Promotion and Reciprocal Protection of Investments between the Republic of Cyprus and the Republic of Albania.

    The 23rd meeting of the Central Council of the World Federation for Overseas Cypriots (POMAK) and the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) and the 5th international conference of the World Organisation for Young Overseas Cypriots (NEPOMAK) will be held in Nicosia from 24-27 August.

    An official statement issued here Tuesday said President Demetris Christofias will address the opening ceremony on 24 August and delegates will be welcomed by Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou.

    [04] `LA BOHEME PAFOS APHRODITE FESTIVAL

    The annual Pafos Aphrodite Festival (PAF) gets underway for the 12th consecutive summer this year, with the performance of Puccinis La Boheme by the Opera of the Slovak National Theatre delivering a cultural treat for opera lovers.

    Performances will take place on 3rd, 4th and 5th September with the medieval castle of Pafos as a stunning backdrop.

    An outstanding line-up of talent will take to the stage to bring `La Boheme` to life this summer, with separate performers tackling the roles on different evenings.

    As well as attracting star talent from overseas, La Boheme will also feature talented local performers, like Cypriot soprano Stella Georgiou and performer Kyriakos Sophocleous.
