    Nicosia, Sep 11 (CNA) -- Cyprus has denounced today's terrorist attacks against the United states while a Swiss Air aircraft carrying President Glafcos Clerides from Zurich to New York has been diverted to Montreal, Canada.

    Cyprus Acting President Demetris Christofias presided over an extraordinary meeting this evening in Nicosia, attended by Members of the Cabinet and other officials, who looked into the situation and measures the Cyprus authorities were taking to protect US and Israeli interests in the government-controlled areas of the island and prevent possible terrorist attacks.

    Speaking after the Presidential Palace meeting Christofias expressed on behalf of the Cyprus government, the parliament and the people of Cyprus strong condemnation of all those terrible terrorist acts against the US which caused a lot of victims among innocent civilians.

    "The Cyprus government denounces unreservedly these actions and expresses its deep grief and sympathy to the US administartion and the american people," he added.

    Christofias said Cyprus competent authorities were on alert and security measures had already been taken in Nicosia and the Republic's ports and airports.

    Regarding President Clerides' trip to New York, where President was scheduled to meet tomorrow UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, Christofias said Swiss Air aircraft carrying the Cypriot President has been diverted Canada. (It has already landed at Monteal airport).

    Invited to say whether Clerides will return to Cyprus, Christofias said this was up to the President to decide.

    Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides flew to New York yesterday.

    Speaking to CNA from New York, Kasoulides said he would send a message to his American counterpart Colin Powell, to denounce "the unprecedented abhorrent terrorist attacks."

    An official press release in Nicosia said earlier this afternoon that Christofias contacted the US Charge D' Affaires in Nicosia to express on behalf of the people of Cyprus strong condemnation of the terrorist attacks and sincere condolences for the innocent victims.
