[01] Cyprus condemns acts of violence in Palestinian Autonomous Areas

The Republic of Cyprus condemns recent acts of violence in the Palestinian Autonomous Areas, particularly the demolition of houses that belong to Palestinian people and the excessive use of armed force, which quite frequently results in the death of innocent people. This was the case with the Israeli attack of July 31 2001, as a result of which two young Palestinian boys died.

The Government of the Republic of Cyprus urges both sides to show maximum restraint, lest the situation gets out of control and escalates into uncontrolled violence with unpredictable results.

It also firmly believes that diplomacy should regain the upper hand and that differences which exist between the Israelis and the Palestinians should be resolved on the negotiating table. Once again, our fervent hope is that peace with justice, security, prosperity and stability prevail among all the people of the Middle East.

[02] Cyprus and Syria adhere to the respect and implementation of UN Resolutions

The President of Syria, Mr Bashar Al Assad has shown keen interest in the Cyprus question and the Republic's efforts to join the European Union during his meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Ioannis Kasoulides who handed him a personal message from the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Glafcos Clerides yesterday in Damascus.

Mr Assad also expressed his country's adherence to the principles of international law and order, respect for UN resolutions and the territorial integrity of states, values he said Cyprus shares as well.
