  • [01] UNFICYP - CYPRUS TALKS - POSTPONED

    Tuesday`s meeting between President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu, in the framework of UN-led negotiations with a view to solve the Cyprus problem, has been postponed, due to Eroglu`s health.

    Instead, the aides of the leaders, George Iacovou and Kudret Ozersay, will be meeting on Tuesday at 1000 am local time (0800 GMT), in the UN Protected Area of Nicosia.

    The Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides have been engaged in direct negotiations since September 2008 to find a mutually agreed settlement that will reunify the country, divided since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.

    Eroglu underwent heart surgery and is recuperating.

    [02] SPOKESMAN RELIGIOUS SERVICE RIZOKARPASO

    The Cyprus government has protested to the United Nations and the European Union over an illegal act by the breakaway regime in the areas of the Republic occupied by Turkish troops to stop a religious service on Christmas day at the Turkish-occupied village of Rizoparpasso, where Christian Orthodox Cypriot live as enclaved.

    In a written statement issued today, Cyprus Government Spokesman Stefanos Stefanou says the occupation regimes act was completely unacceptable and condemnable. It constitutes a violation of one of the basic human rights as it is the exercise of religious duties.

    At the same time, the Spokesman adds that this act projects the oppressive substance of the occupation.

    Stefanou announces that the Cyprus government was making demarches and representations to the United Nations Organisation and the European Union.
