    [01] Athens and Nicosia share identical views on the Cyprus problem, says President Papadopoulos

    The President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Tassos Papadopoulos, has noted that during his meeting with the Greek Prime Minister and current European Council President, in Athens, it was ascertained that the Greek and Cyprus governments shared identical views and assessments regarding the Cyprus problem. Speaking last night at Larnaca Airport upon his arrival from the Greek capital, President Papadopoulos told reporters that Athens and Nicosia had agreed on the next steps regarding the Cyprus issue and underlined their readiness for immediate talks and negotiations when the UN Secretary-General would deem as the appropriate time to pursue a solution based on his solution plan. Referring to his meetings with Mr Costas Simitis, Mr Papadopoulos said that they were "very useful and constructive", and expressed his satisfaction with the issues discussed and the decisions taken. He pointed out that in their first meeting they had discussed issues pertaining to the Thessaloniki European Council meeting in June and, in particular, the matters concerning the Convention on the Future of Europe. Invited to comment on a statement by the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mr Gul, who said that a solution could be reached by May 2004, the Cyprus President pointed out that the Erdogan administration had been putting forward generalisations which did not indicate any serious change of policy by Ankara. "Mr Erdogan's position is fully in line with that of Mr Denktash, as the former explicitly said it during his illegal visit in the occupied areas", he added.

    [02] Cyprus and Libya sign air transport agreement

    Cyprus and Libya have signed an agreement in the field of air transport, providing the framework within which airlines from the two countries could cooperate. The agreement was signed yesterday by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Communications and Works, Mr Simeon Matsis, and the Deputy Director of the Libyan Civil Aviation Authority, Mr Mohamed Shlebik. In a short address during the signing ceremony, Mr Matsis said that the agreement would contribute to the improvement of air transportation between the two countries and to the further enhancement of the friendly ties of the two. The head of the Libyan delegation, Mr Shlebik, said on his turn that the friendly ties between Libya and Cyprus would become tighter after the signing of the agreement.
