  • [01] LEADERS - NEW MEETING

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will be holding a new meeting on January 12, in the context of UN-led direct negotiations to solve the Cyprus problem.

    The meeting will be preceded by a meeting of the aides of the leaders of the two communities, George Iacovou and Kudret Ozersay, on January 5.

    In statements to CNA, Iacovou said that, according to Eroglu`s doctors, the Turkish Cypriot leader, who recently underwent heart surgery, will be well enough to attend the meeting on January 12.

    Iacovou noted that during yesterdays meeting with Ozersay they discussed issues concerning governance, adding that on January 5 they will be discussing issues relating to the economy and the EU, in preparation for the leaders` meeting on January 12.

    Asked if during the meeting with Ozersay he raised the interruption of the Christmas liturgy in the Turkish occupied areas, Iacovou said he did not, since representations had already been made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the UN.

    [02] GAROYIAN - NEW YEAR

    President of the House of Representatives Marios Garoyian expressed hope on Friday that 2011 would see the reunification of Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    He also expressed hope that economic development will create conditions of prosperity, adding that the challenges ahead must be met effectively and decisively.

    The people and the political leadership must unite to work together to pave the way for the future of our country. I wish you all a healthy and happy new year, he said, as he listened to New Years carols by the police, the National Guard and ELDYK (Greek military contingent in Cyprus) bands.

    He expressed hope that Greece and Cyprus will manage to overcome difficulties ahead and give hope and prospects to their people.
