  • [01] CYPRUS GOVERNMENT - BASKETBALL INCIDENTS

    The Government of the Republic of Cyprus condemns the unacceptable events that took place in the basketball game between Cypriot team APOEL and Turkish team Pinar Karsigiaka in the context of the FIBA Mens EuroChallenge Cup.

    According to an announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ``the President of the Republic himself has already also condemned the incidents``.

    ``In exercising its duties in an effective manner, the Cyprus Police Force took right from the outset all necessary measures and provided full protection to the mission of the visiting team, which had not been put in jeopardy. The aforesaid is also confirmed by statements made by the head of the Turkish mission``, the announcement says.

    Regrettably, Foreign Ministry`s announcement says, such dismal events do occasionally occur at sporting events in European countries.

    ``Cypriot teams were treated similarly in the past while in Turkey, although the Government of the Republic of Cyprus has never tried to attach any political connotation to such incidents. It is also reminded that Turkish sports teams have competed many times in Cyprus without any problems whatsoever``, is added.

    [02] GAROYIAN WISHES

    The House President Marios Garoyian expressed on Wednesday the expectation that 2011 will be the year of Cyprus reunification. Garoyian was speaking after he had listened to Christmas carols by the Police band, the National Guard band and the band of the Greek military contingent in Cyprus (ELDYK).

    He also wished that the new year will bring economic growth both for Greece and Cyprus and will minimize repercussions of the financial crisis, creating the necessary social cohesion. Garoyian thanked the Greek military force in Cyprus for its longstanding contribution to strengthening the feeling of security in Cyprus.
