  • [01] CYPRIOT PRESIDENT - HOUSE RESOLUTION - BASES

    Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said that he considers a possible effort to claim by the British government the money it owes to Cyprus for the use of the Sovereign Bases Areas would be ``difficult and legally complex``.

    Invited to comment a resolution adopted unanimously by the House of Representatives on Thursday calling on the government to make all necessary representations towards Britain to pay its debts to the Republic of Cyprus, Papadopoulos said that the government will examine the House`s decision, as well as the speeches made during the plenary session.

    Replying to a question whether the arrest of Cypriot Member of the European Parliament (MEP), Marios Matsakis by the SBA Police was the reason for Cyprus claiming the money Britain owes to the Republic, Papadopoulos said that he was not sure that the two issues are linked.

    ``And I am not sure that everybody knows what this claim actually entails, which for many may seem simple but has very serious legal, practical and surely political complications,`` Papadopoulos concluded.

    Britain has retained two sovereign military bases in Cyprus since the island gained its independence from British colonial rule in 1960.

    [02] HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES - BRITISH BASES

    The Cypriot House of Representatives unanimously adopted a resolution calling on the government to make all necessary representations towards Britain to pay the sums it owes to the Republic of Cyprus, hoping that the island will in the future be rid of any military presence or bases on its territory.

    The resolution was adopted after the House plenary discussion of the issue ``The financial obligations of Britain towards the Republic of Cyprus, as these emanate from the Treaty of Establishment, and the necessity to take every available legal measure to claim that owing.``

    The House says that it will monitor the issue closely and requests that the government ``examines the further relevant conducts and taking measures, in case of a continuation of the refusal of the British authorities to respond to their obligations.``

    [03] RUSSIAN MINISTER - INTERVIEW

    Russian Minister of Agriculture Alexey Gordeev is in Cyprus on a three-day visit, during which he will be received by President Tassos Papadopoulos and hold talks with Cypriot Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment Photis Photiou, as well as European Commissioner for Health Marcos Kyprianou.

    In an interview with CNA, Gardeev said ``Russia and Cyprus can successfully complement each other in agricultural produce,`` adding that during his talks on the island ``we will discuss in detail how to strengthen commercial and economic relations, our relations in the sector of agricultural science and education.``
