  • [01] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS - UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias wraps up his official programme at the UN General Assembly with his speech later in the day, which will be preceded by a press conference and a meeting with Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov.

    President Christofias will also address an event at the New York University in the context of celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus, and will present awards at the annual gala of the Cypriot Federation of America.

    In his speech before the General Assembly, President Christofias is expected to refer to the course of negotiations with the Turkish Cypriot side to solve the Cyprus problem, and the package of proposals he has submitted, which aim at creating the appropriate climate to promote the process, and is also expected to express regret that Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot side have dismissed the package.

    He will also refer to the issue of Famagusta and point out the need to implement the provisions of UN resolution 550.

    President Christofias will call on Turkey to put its words into practice, and to meet with him to share his vision for a solution.

    Furthermore, he will refer to the basis of the solution, as defined in resolutions, high level agreements and the acquis communautaire, and will reiterate his offer to convene an international meeting as soon as an agreement is in view, under the auspices of the UN Secretary General and in the presence of the permanent members of the UN Security Council, the EU, the Republic of Cyprus and the two communities on the island, to discuss the international aspects of the Cyprus problem.

    Cyprus, which joined the EU in 2004, has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    [02] CYPRIOT FM NEW YORK CONTACTS

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs Marcos Kyprianou continued on Thursday his contacts on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

    Kyprianou met with the Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki, with whom he discussed issues of mutual interest. Kyprianou briefed Al-Maliki on the developments on the Cyprus problem, while the Palestinian official briefed Kyprianou on the developments on the Palestinian issue.

    The Cypriot FM attended the opening of the 65th UN General Assembly and he also participated in the Fifth Biennial Ministerial Meeting in support of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.

    [03] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS - EXHIBITION - SMITHSONIAN MUSEUM

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias will inaugurate Tuesday in Washington a unique exhibition, entitled Cyprus: Crossroads of Civilizations.

    The exhibition will be on view at the Smithsonians National Museum of Natural History in the US capital, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Cyprus, to highlight Cyprus own distinctive history and culture.

    The exhibition will be open to the public 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.

    The items cover nearly 11,000 years of history, from the Cypriot-Archaic through the Venetian period.

    The exhibition is expected to be displayed at other US museums and in Canada, which have already expressed an interest in hosting it.
