  • [01] The European Parliament requests the upgrading of pre-accession financial support towards Cyprus
  • [02] UN Secretary-General issues a report on the financing of UNFICYP

    [01]

    The European Parliament approved yesterday a report by which the pre- accession financial support towards Cyprus and Malta is upgraded, in the framework of economic and technical assistance for candidates for accession to the European Union countries.

    By adopting the report of German EuroMP, Elmar Brok, the European Parliament furthermore supports the need to register the funds for Cyprus and Malta in Chapter 7 of the bloc's budget, which refers to its pre- accession strategy.

    The European Parliament requests that the funds for Cyprus and Malta are greater than the 95 million euros proposed by the European Commission, with which the European Council agrees.

    [02]

    In a recent report to the UN General Assembly, the Secretary General of the United Nations presents the financial performance of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) for the period from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999.

    According to the report, the General Assembly, by its resolution 52/241 of 26 June 1998, appropriated the amount of $45,276,160 gross ($43,536,860 net) for the maintenance of UNFICYP for the period from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999, inclusive of an amount of $2,267,160 for the support account for peacekeeping operations. The Government of Cyprus provided one third of the cost of the Force ($14,512,300), and the Government of Greece provided $6, 500,000 through voluntary contributions. An amount of $24,263,800 gross ($22,524,560 net) has been assessed on Member States.
