[01] President Clerides: Government will not give in to threats and blackmail

The Cyprus Government is ready to accept any initiative from any Security Council or EU member state that would assist in the efforts for a settlement of the Cyprus problem, but also weighs up their interests in relation to Turkey, President Glafcos Clerides stated yesterday.

In a written statement, read by Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides President Clerides also defended the government's decision to purchase the S300 anti-aircraft missiles by pointing out that the system would increase the country's defence capability.

"We knew there would be reactions to the missile defence system and we are facing these with responsible handlings without giving in to threats and blackmail", the President stated.

[02] Parliamentarians of Greek origin undertake enlightenment campaign.

The World Parliamentary Union of Greeks will promote Cyprus' national cause by undertaking a campaign to enlighten the Parliaments and Governments of the countries they come from, on the need for a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.

The delegation of the World Parliamentary Union of Greeks, which comprises of 76 deputies from 24 countries, was on a one day visit to the island in the framework of the Second Annual Congress of the Union (19-27 July) in Athens, Thrace, Chios and Cyprus.

The delegation was received yesterday by Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides and had meetings with Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides and other Cypriot politicians.

Before departing yesterday the delegation visited the capital's demarcation line and the Nicosia Municipality.
