    Security Council adopts resolution on UNFICYP

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Jun 11 (CNA) - The UN Security Council adopted unanimously here Wednesday resolution 1486 on the renewal of UNFICYP's mandate, extending it until December 15, 2003.

    In its resolution the Council expresses concern at the recent, further violations by the Turkish Cypriot side and the Turkish forces at the southeastern village of Strovilia and urges them to restore the military status quo which existed there prior to 30 June 2000.

    The Security Council notes the limited steps taken by the Turkish Cypriot side to ease some of the restrictions imposed on 30 June 2000 on the operation of UNFICYP but urges the Turkish Cypriot side and the Turkish forces to rescind all remaining restrictions on UNFICYP.

    It also endorses the increase of the UNFICYP civilian police component by no more than 34 officers in order to meet the increased workload resulting from ''the welcome partial easing of restrictions on island-wide freedom of movement, which has been met by goodwill from Greek and Turkish Cypriots''.

    Furthermore it reaffirms all its relevant resolutions on Cyprus and in particular resolution 1251 of 29 June 1999 and subsequent resolutions.

    It also welcomes the report of the Secretary General of 27 May 2003 on the United Nations operation in Cyprus and in particular the call to the parties to assess and address the humanitarian issue of missing persons with due urgency and seriousness.

    The full text of the resolution is as follows:
