  • [01] SPOKESMAN - CYPRUS - TURKEY

    Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis pointed out that it is the Republic of Cyprus` inalienable right to sign any kind of cooperation agreements with other countries, and it was not up to Turkey to give its consent.

    Invited to comment on Ankara`s reaction to the military cooperation between Cyprus and France, Pashiardis said he would not comment on issues of a military or defence nature.

    ``I restrict myself to saying that it is our inalienable right to enter cooperation agreements of any form with any country, and this right does not undergo the recognition or approval either of Turkey or any other side,`` he said.

    [02] CYPRUS - LEBANON - PEACE

    Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis has expressed here Wednesday Cyprus` readiness to facilitate in every possible way the international effort to end the crisis in Lebanon.

    Asked if the Republic of Cyprus would be participating in a peacekeeping force in Lebanon, Pashiardis said ``our final decisions regarding the practical form of these facilities will be taken after the adoption of the relevant Security Council resolution and when the mandate of the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon is finalised.``

    [03] CHURCH - LEBANON - AID

    The Church does not discriminate among different religious denominations when it comes to humanitarian aid, said here Wednesday Acting Primate of the Church of Cyprus, Bishop of Paphos Chrysostomos who went to Beirut on board a French military helicopter to hand over 60,000 dollars worth of aid.

    Speaking before departing, the Bishop said we believe that the moral support we give is far more important than material assistance.

    He recalled that Cypriots themselves have experienced similar situations and know first hand what war can bring, referring to the 1974 Turkish invasion of the island.

    We will see on site our brothers and offer our support. The Church does not discriminate, we treat everybody with the same love, he said.

    During his brief stay in Lebanon, Chrysostomos will meet representatives of the Orthodox and Catholic Church as well as Sunnis and Shi`a Muslims and will deliver 60,000 dollars for the relief of Lebanese people who are suffering.

    He returns in early afternoon.

    [04] RUSSIA - LEBANON - CYPRUS

    Russian humanitarian aid destined for Lebanon is scheduled to arrive in Cyprus on Wednesday.

    An Ilyushin transport aircraft of the Emergency Situations Ministry was due to leave Moscows Romenesco airport this morning for Larnaca International Airport.

    According to Itar-Tass news agency, this special flight is carrying blankets, mattresses as well as tents to shelter a large number of people.

    From Larnaca, the aid will be given to the UN and then sent to Lebanon by sea. Additional flights carrying aid will follow, two on 11 August (taking blankets, tents, cooking utensils and 25 tones of food) and another one on 15 August carrying power generators, 12 tones of baby food and 22 tones of pharmaceutical material.
