    The Permanent Mission of Spain to the United Nations, in a document attached to a letter sent on 11 August 2003 to the President of the UN Security Council assessing the work of the Security Council during the presidency of Spain in July 2003, made reference to Cyprus and in particular, to the discussion on Cyprus at the Security Council, on 24 July, regarding the threats by the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to settle the fenced-off area of Varosha. The paragraph of the document referring to Cyprus is the following: "On 24 July the President briefed members of the Security Council on the concern expressed by the Government of Cyprus about the latest developments in the island, especially the situation of Varosha. The Council reiterated its position on Varosha (resolution 550 (1984) ) and urged the parties to resume a negotiation aimed at reaching a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus question on the basis of the Secretary-General's plan, as stated in resolution 1475 (2003)."

    The Government Spokesman, Mr Kypros Chrysostomides, announced yesterday during the daily press briefing that the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Dr Jan Peter Balkenende, and the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Mr Vladimir Chizhov, would be visiting Cyprus at the beginning of October and end of August, 2003, respectively. Mr Chrysostomides said that the Dutch PM would pay a two-day official visit to the island on 6 and 7 October 2003 and that he would meet with the President of the Republic, Mr Tassos Papadopoulos, to discuss bilateral and international issues, as well as issues concerning the European Union. Mr Balkenende would also hold talks with the President of the House of Representatives, Mr Dimitris Christofias. Announcing also the visit of the Russian Deputy FM, the Government Spokesman said that Mr Chizhov would arrive in Cyprus on 31 August and that he would meet with the Permanent Secretary of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Mr Sotos Zackheos, to discuss bilateral agreements and their compatibility with the EU acquis communautaire. The Spokesman noted that as of 1 January 2004, visas would be reintroduced for visitors from Russia, adding that the issue would be discussed during Mr Chizhov's visit in order to find the best possible solutions.

    [03] The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns the recent bomb blasts in Mumbai

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns the recent bomb blasts in Mumbai that left dozens of innocent people killed and many others wounded. These bomb blasts are despicable acts of terrorism, which should remind the international community of its commitment to intensify its efforts to eradicate this menace. Such acts should meet the resolute rejection and condemnation by all nations with commitment to freedom, tolerance and democracy. At this difficult time for India, the Government and people of Cyprus would like to extend their deep sympathy and condolences to the Government and people of the friendly country of India.
