[01] Simitis: idea of confederation will never be accepted

The Greek government's aim is for a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, which envisages a bizonal bicommunal Republic of Cyprus with a single sovereignty, based on the United Nations resolutions.

The above was stated by the Prime Minister of Greece Mr Costas Simitis, in his speech at the meeting of the Parliamentary Group of the Greek Socialist Party Pasok on 4 October.

Mr Simitis also stressed that the Greek and Cyprus governments will never accept the idea of confederation.

The Prime Minister said that the Greek government would always provide support to President Clerides in his negotiating efforts. He also added that relations between Athens and Nicosia are and will continue to be very strong.

[02] Cyprus and Egypt sign cooperation agreement

Cyprus and Egypt have signed a cooperation agreement in the fields of public health and medical science.

The agreement was signed on 4 October in Cairo by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health Mr Symeon Matsis on behalf of the Republic of Cyprus, and the Egyptian Health Minister Mr Ismail Sallam on behalf of Egypt.

The agreement provides for the exchange of information and specialists in various fields of medicine, the development of cooperation between the two countries' foundations and organisations, and the coordination of action by both governments at an international level and especially with regard to the World Health Organisation.
