  • [01] BRITAIN - TURKISH CYPRIOTS

    The UK and its EU partners remain committed to lifting the so-called economic isolation of the Turkish Cypriots through targeted financial aid and trade liberation, Foreign Office Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State Lord Triesman has said.

    Replying to questions by Lord Kilclooney at the House of Lords, Triesman said the British government continues to review the legal position in respect of direct flights to Cyprus` Turkish occupied areas, assuring that the UK does not intend to take action that would be in contravention of international law.

    Asked what is being done in respect of the EU assurance to end the isolation of the Turkish Cypriots, Triesman replied: the UK and its EU partners remain committed to lifting the economic isolation of the Turkish Cypriots through targeted financial aid and trade liberation.

    [02] CYPRUS - CoE SEMINAR

    Cyprus will be hosting the sixth regional seminar to fight human trafficking and to promote the signature and ratification of its Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings.

    The seminar, which will be held on 15 and 16 February at Hilton Park Hotel in Nicosia, is organised by the Equality Division Directorate General of Human Rights of the 46-member Council of Europe in cooperation with the Cypriot Ministry of Interior and will focus on all three aspects of the Convention, namely Prevention, Protection and Prosecution.

    Up to 150 seminar participants, including Council of Europe speakers, national officials with expertise in human rights and criminal law and NGO representatives from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Moldova, Romania, and Ukraine, will examine methods of stopping this "modern form of slavery."
