  • [01] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - EUROPEAN COUNCIL

    President Demetris Christofias has departed for Brussels to represent Cyprus at the European Council, which will focus on the economy, growth and jobs.

    EU heads of state and government will also take stock of the situation in Libya and the EU`s southern neighbourhood, and discuss assistance to bring relief to the affected population in Japan.

    The leaders are due to agree on a comprehensive package of measures to safeguard financial stability and to promote sustainable growth and employment. This includes final approval of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), a new fund that in 2013 will replace the present temporary one to support eurozone countries in the event of major economic difficulties.

    The Council is also expected to adopt the Pact for the euro, which will strengthen economic policy coordination with the aim of improving competitiveness.

    As regards international issues, the summit will discuss the latest developments in Libya and, more generally, in the EU`s southern neighbourhood. It will also consider the situation in Japan and the lessons to be learned in the field of nuclear safety.

    [02] ARCHBISHOP - VATICAN

    Cyprus Archbishop Chrysostomos II will fly to Rome on Sunday for an audience with Pope Benedict XVI and the Prime Minister of the Vatican.

    In statements to the press, Chrysostomos said that he will discuss with the Pope issues concerning the Church of Cyprus, Orthodoxy and Christianity in general.

    The Archbishop noted that the 21st century is the century of dialogue, adding that ``we must hold discussions and we are determined to talk to everyone, Christians and Muslims, and everybody concerned.``
