    Nicosia, Jun 2 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government described as "positive approach" the reference to Cyprus in the conclusions of the EU/US Summit which took place in Queluz, Portugal on Wednesday.

    Its Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said the reference "shows the earnest interest of the EU and the US in Cyprus", adding that it is especially important because it talks about finding a settlement consistent with UN Security Council resolutions.

    [08] Missing persons relatives - UN chief report

    Nicosia, Jun 2 (CNA) - The Committee of Relatives of Missing Persons has expressed surprise with the UN Secretary General's reference to the issue of missing persons in Cyprus, in his report recommending the renewal of the UN peace-keeping force (UNFICYP) on the island, describing it as "unfortunate, in the least".

    In a press release issued today, the Committee calls on the government to react "immediately and concretely to the unacceptable attitude of certain circles at the UN in Nicosia dealing with the issue, who in the past few years appear to aim solely towards closing the matter by proclaiming all missing persons dead without proper investigation."
