  • [01] CLINTON - TURKEY - CYPRUS ISSUE

    The United States do not believe that the status quo on Cyprus benefits anyone, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Saturday, noting that both sides would benefit from a settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking at a joint press conference in Constantinople with Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmet Davutoglu and replying to questions, Clinton said "we want to see a bizonal, bicommunal federation, and we would like to see it as soon as possible, we would like to see it by 2012."

    "The United States very actively promoted the referendum that was presented to the population of Cyprus back in 2004. And we were disappointed by the outcome, because we thought that that would have resolved a lot of the issues that are still being very difficult to overcome. We dont think the status quo on Cyprus benefits anyone. Its gone on for far too long," she said.

    She added that "we believe both sides would benefit from a settlement, and we strongly support the renewed, reenergised efforts that the United Nations is leading and that the Cypriots themselves are responsible for, because ultimately, theyre the ones who have to make the hard decisions about how to resolve all of the outstanding issues."

    "We want to see a bizonal, bicommunal federation, and we would like to see it as soon as possible. We would like to see it by 2012. And that is something that the UN has said. Thats something I know Turkey believes. Its something we believe. And were going to do everything we can to support this process and finally try to see a resolution," Clinton pointed out.

    Davutoglu noted that, among other issues, they discussed "the Turkey-EU relations and also the latest point reached in the negotiations about Cyprus."

    [02] OCCUPIED AREAS - POWER - TSO

    The provision of electricity from the Turkish occupied areas of the Republic of Cyprus began on Saturday at midnight local time, to cover part of the gap in power after the island`s main power station at Vassiliko was destroyed by the shock wave from the explosion of munitions at the Evangelos Florakis Naval Base.

    Director of the Cyprus Transmission System Operator (TSO) Christos Christodoulides told CNA that "the connection was made after many efforts and things are running smoothly, we are receiving a load of around 20 MW."

    Christodoulides noted that the situation would be assessed and further moves would be decided.
