    [01] Cyprus - Egypt - Oil exploration

    Nicosia, Sep 25 (CNA) -- Cyprus, Egypt and Syria are to set up a tripartite ministerial committee with a view to handle matters relating to the construction of an underwater pipeline which will bring natural gas to Cyprus from Syria, it was officially announced here today after talks between Cyprus and Egypt.

    Cyprus and Egypt also decided to establish a technical committee which will deal with oil and gas reserves exploration and exploitation, taking into account the Law of the Sea Convention, and which will delimitate the continental shelf of each country and each country's exclusive economic zone.

    There will also be a third committee between Cyprus and Egypt to work on technical questions on geophysical issues concerning the two countries.

    Cyprus' Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Nicos Rolandis said after his hour-long meeting with Egyptian Minister of Petroleum Sameh Fahmy that Cyprus will have to use natural gas in the future instead of oil and Fahmy said Egypt would put at the disposal of Cyprus its expertise in the framework of its cooperation with Nicosia.

    [04] Spokesman - Terrorism

    Nicosia, Sep 25 (CNA) -- Cyprus aligns itself with European Union decisions on the effort to fight terrorism and believes that reprisals are not the order of the day and points out that what is needed is action to uproot the scourge of terrorism, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today.

    He said that Cyprus also believes that a wide-ranging attack in retaliation to the terrorist attacks against the US would not lead anywhere and added that any information that comes to light relating to terrorism is assessed, noting that both the US and the EU take a keen interest in any such data.

    The spokesman said Cyprus' position with regard to terrorism is based on principles and serves the interests of the country.

    "The targets of the American response to the terrorist attacks of 11 September should be specific. We subscribe fully to the EU position which means that we believe that any general strike would lead nowhere," Papapetrou said at his daily press briefing, adding that "what is needed is not reprisals, but such action that will uproot the scourge of terrorism."

    [05] Council of Europe Secretary General - Cyprus - Turkey

    by Gregoris Savva Strasbourg, Sep 25 (CNA) -- The mere existence and functioning of the Council of Europe is leverage on its member states, including Turkey, to respect Council rules and regulations, values and standards, and comply with decisions taken by its various organs, Council Secretary General Walter Schwimmer said here today.

    He reiterated the Council's position that the solution of the Cyprus problem is a bizonal, bicommunal federation, whose structure and content will be decided by the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities, whom Schwimmer invited to "be ready for talks".

    [07] House President - Address - Council of Europe

    Nicosia, Sep 25 (CNA) -- House President Demetris Christofias has urged European institutions and the world community to act as a catalyst in the UN peace effort to help find a political settlement in Cyprus and called on parliamentarians to exercise influence and pressure on the Turkish side to participate in peace talks in good will.

    Addressing the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, the first time in years a House President speaks before the Assembly, Christofias referred extensively to the repercussions of the continuing occupation by Turkey of one third of the island, but expressed the conviction that peace can prevail to serve the interests of both Greek and Turkish Cypriots.

    Christofias said Cyprus' prospective accession to the European Union paves the way for the start of a new era and reminded Assembly members that the EU decision to accept Cyprus as a member should apply, if by the time of accession there is no political solution on the island.

    [08] European Parliament - Letter - Turkey

    Brussels, Sep 25 (CNA) -- Nicole Fontaine, the President of the European Parliament, has sent a strongly worded letter to Turkey's Foreign Minister Ismail Cem, denouncing categorically Ankara's critical remarks about the character of the Parliament's rapporteur on Cyprus Jacques Poos and the work he has done with regard to the Cyprus question.

    Fontaine describes Cem's public remarks on Poos as set out in a press release "inappropriate" and expresses the hope that they were a misunderstanding and that such incidents should not be repeated.

    [09] Cyprus - UN

    Nicosia, Sep 25 (CNA) -- Acceptance by the international community of what the Turkish side calls "the realities in Cyprus" would create a "very dangerous precedent" that is bound to have an adverse fallout on state sovereignty, territorial integrity and international law and order, Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Sotos Zackheos has warned.

    In his address to the UN Assembly, Zackheos also said that Turkish policy on Cyprus contradicts the principles of tolerance and multiculturalism and reminded his audience that the reality on the island is reflected in the presence of some 36,000 Turkish occupation troops, massive human rights violations, repression of Turkish Cypriots by the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime and a deliberate policy to change the country's demographic character.
