  • [01] UNSG-Downer meeting over Cyprus postponed for Friday

    The meeting between the UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon and his Special Advisor for Cyprus Alexander Downer to review developments in the Cyprus issue will take place on Friday, April 20.

    The reasons for the meeting's postponement, initially scheduled for Thursday, have not been revealed. Due to the rearrangement, Downer's meetings with representatives of the parties involved have been rescheduled for next Monday.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern third. Peace talks are currently underway to find a negotiated settlement that will reunite the country, under a federal roof.

    [02] Cyprus thanks Serbia for its support

    Cyprus has thanked Serbia for its long standing support in efforts to find a negotiated settlement of the Cyprus issue and said it supports Serbia's European aspirations to join the EU. Acting Defence Minister Stavros Malas has thanked the Minister of Defence of Serbia Dragan Sutanovac for the strong support his country affords the people of Cyprus in their efforts to reunite their country, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    Malas met on Wednesday with Sutanovac at the Ministry of Defence on the occasion of the Serbian Minister's visit to Cyprus to inspect the Serbian contingent of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus.

    Speaking to the press after the meeting, Malas said he briefed him on the latest developments in the Cyprus problem and the fact that unfortunately the ongoing UN-led direct negotiations between the two community leaders are not going in the right direction due to the stance of the Turkish Cypriot side and Turkey which "unfortunately has a partitionist vision and not a vision that expresses the desires of all the people of Cyprus".
