    [01] Government Spokesman: so-called "framework agreement for a customs union" is merely an extension of continuing illegality

    The signing of a so-called "framework agreement for a customs union" between Turkey and the Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus is merely an extension of the continuing Turkish illegality in Cyprus and an attempt to by-pass European norms, the Government Spokesman Mr Kypros Chrysostomides has noted. Speaking to reporters last Saturday, the Government Spokesman said that the Turkish illegal occupation was continuing and the Denktash administration was nothing more than a subordinate administration to the occupation force, that is, an extension of the illegal power exercised by Turkey in the occupied areas. Mr Chrysostomides also recalled the UN resolutions on Cyprus condemning the declaration of the pseudo-state as well as the Turkish invasion and occupation. "In this framework of illegality", he added, "Turkey, which is responsible for what is happening in the occupied part of Cyprus, has basically signed an agreement with itself." The Government Spokesman further expressed the position that the signing of the "framework agreement" would constitute a serious obstacle to Turkey's relations with the European Union and its aspiration to begin accession negotiations by next year. "It is demonstrated once more that the Erdogan government fully supports the Turkish Cypriot leader and acts in accordance to the latter's wishes and the instructions of the Turkish military establishment", Mr Chrysostomides said and expressed regret that no change in Turkish policy on Cyprus was foreseeable in the near future.

    [02] Ambassador Mavroyiannis presents credentials as Cyprus' Permanent Representative to UN

    Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis presented last week his credentials to the UN Secretary-General, Mr Kofi Annan, as the Permanent Representative of the Republic of Cyprus to the United Nations. Presenting his credentials, Mr Mavroyiannis expressed the readiness of the Greek Cypriot side to negotiate in the context of the Annan plan for a comprehensive political settlement of the Cyprus problem. He further conveyed to the UN Chief the warm greetings and gratitude of President Tassos Papadopoulos and the Cyprus people for the UN efforts throughout the years and Mr Annan's personal attempts recently to reach a settlement based on UN resolutions on Cyprus. Accepting the credentials, the UN Secretary-General asked Ambassador Mavroyiannis to convey to President Papadopoulos his warm greetings and reaffirmed his continuous interest in Cyprus and his dedication to the peace efforts.
