  • [01] FM ISRAEL

    The Minister of Foreign Affairs Markos Kyprianou concluded his visit to Israel, where he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Liberman.

    According to an official announcement, the Minister discussed during his contacts the Cyprus problem and the Middle East peace process, as well as regional and international issues of mutual interest. Moreover, ways of promoting Cyprus-Israeli relations were also discussed, along with the issue of EU-Israeli relations.

    The objective of Kyprianous visit, it is noted, was to prepare the ground for the forthcoming visit of President Christofias to Israel in March.

    [02] NGOs CYPRUS -CIVICUS

    The prospects and potential for a positive contribution of Civil Society in the Greek Cypriot community appear stronger in the past six years, according to a CIVICUS report, the World Alliance for Citizen Participation, in which Cyprus participates.

    The report, presented on Thursday, notes that there has been an improvement in the dynamic of NGOs in public affairs, compared to 2005, when a similar poll was conducted. The viability prospects and cooperation of NGOs as well as their participation in decision taking have improved, reaching 77.1% of the capabilities of these organizations.

    This is expected to lead to a mass participation of citizens in the public affairs of the Greek Cypriot community and in civil society organizations.

    At present, the participation of citizens in NGOs reaches only 5% while the majority, 97.5% of the public states that it does not participate in any voluntary social work.
