  • [01] PRESIDENT - UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias departs Saturday for New York, where he will address the UN General Assembly and hold a meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

    In the framework of his stay there, the President will hold bilateral meetings with heads of state and government including Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou and President of Serbia Boris Tadic.

    According to an official press release, the President will address the UN General Assembly on September 24th, while his meeting with the UN chief is expected to take place on Tuesday, September 21st.

    The Cypriot President will also make a speech at the Center of Archaeological Studies of the New York University and receive the leadership of the Cyprus Federation of America.

    During his stay there, he will attend a reception hosted by US President Barack Obama as well as a luncheon with the leadership of the American Jewish Committee.

    On September 24th he will give a press conference at the UN headquarters.

    The President will be accompanied by first lady Elsi Christofia, Minister of Foreign Affairs Marcos Kyprianou, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou and other officials.

    On September 28th, the Cypriot President will fly to Washington to inaugurate the exhibition Cyprus: Crossroads of Civilizations at the Smithsonians National Museum of Natural History, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Cyprus.

    The exhibition will be on view from September 29, 2010 until May 1, 2011 and it will feature about 260 items, many of which are being displayed for the first time in the USA, covering nearly 11,000 years of history.

    [02] SPOKESMAN PRESIDENTS PROPOSALS

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said that the Cypriot President has submitted proposals on how to speed up the Cyprus talks, noting that for the solution of the Cyprus problem both communities should show political will.

    The Spokesman said that President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has proved his political will for achieving a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Invited to comment on statements made by Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu, who said that this is the last opportunity to solve the Cyprus problem and that the pace of the Cyprus talks is slow, Stephanou said that history has shown that there are no last opportunities.

    [03] GREEK MFA SPOKESMAN CYPRUS ISSUE

    The Cyprus problem is a problem of invasion and occupation of its sovereign territory, to which a solution has to be found, Spokesman of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs Gregoris Delavekouras has said.

    Delavekouras expressed concern over the statements made by the Turkish Cypriot leadership on the Cyprus issue and the prospects of progress, saying that this has to change, and it is at this point that the role of Turkey is crucial.

    He also noted that Turkey continues to maintain 40.000 troops on the territory of the Republic of Cyprus and added that the proposals submitted recently by President Christofias are very important and very substantial and realistic.

    [04] IMF CYPRUS ECONOMY

    The International Monetary Fund deems that economic conditions in Cyprus have stabilized and the economy is projected to bottom out in 2010, giving way to a mild recovery in 2011 followed by stronger growth.

    In its staff report for 2010, prepared by the staff representatives for the 2010 consultation with Cyprus, the IMF says that economic conditions have stabilized, and the economy is projected to bottom out in 2010, giving way to a mild recovery in 2011 followed by stronger growth but notes that however, global financial risks remain elevated and muted growth prospects in trading partners weigh on the outlook.

    The government has taken steps to stabilize the fiscal deficit, but further measures will be needed to reach the official deficit target for 2012 of 3 percent of GDP, it is added.
