  • [01] Political developments in Cyprus included in declassified British archives

    The declassified British archives of the Prime Ministerial Office referring to Cyprus over the period 1980-1983 include references to subjects relating to the political developments in the island.

    British government records of the time frequently detail the position of the USA on the negotiations over the Cyprus problem and the unilateral declaration of independence (UDI) of the so-called ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus' by Rauf Denktash on 15/11/83.

    Two days after the UDI a State Department official informed British diplomats in Washington that the US administration would coninute to publicly call for a reversal of Denktash's declaration, even though he admitted there were few chances he would be convinced to oblige. The view in the State Department was rather that there should be an examination of whether the declaration was presenting new negotiating possibilities.

    [02] Boosting development main parameter for recovery, says Archbishop

    Cyprus Archbishop Chrysostomos II said he was optimistic about the course of the country's economy, while noting that the main parameter for its recovery lay in boosting development.

    The Primate of the Church of Cyprus also revealed that investors from Russia were planning to visit the island after August 15, in order to discuss possible investments with the government, mainly in the area of tourism and energy. The Archbishop said he had met with investors during a recent visit to Moscow, to attend celebrations for the 1025th anniversary of the introduction of Christianity in the country.

    Speaking on Saturday, during a memorial service for the First President of the Republic, Archbishop Makarios, at the Monastery of Kykkos, Chrysostomos II said his optimism concerning the economy was founded on people's ability to work tirelessly in order to survive.

    [03] Cyprus and Greece redesign defence cooperation

    Defence relations between Cyprus and Greece are very close and will remain so, Minister of Defence Photis Photiou said on Saturday.

    Speaking from the Limassol, in the southern coast of Cyprus, while visiting the Greek Navy vessel "Samos" that anchored in the city's port, Photiou said that the Greek presence in the Mediterranean will be strong. "We will not follow, however, in Turkey's games to create tension" the Cypriot Minister added.

    He said moreover that the two countries were redesigning their defence cooperation, "on the basis of new strategic developments in the region and while taking into account the exclusive economic zones.
