  • [01] SPOKESMAN - US OFFICIAL - VISIT

    Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said on Friday that the Cypriot government had responded positively to the wish of US Undersecretary at the State Department Nicholas Burns to visit Cyprus and it remained to set a date for the visit. Palmas added that Britain and the US play a substantive role in the Cyprus problem and their involvement was welcome, in cooperation with the other permanent members of the UN Security Council.

    ``It is a fact that Mr. Burns expressed the wish to visit the region and Cyprus. The Cypriot government responded positively and it remains to set a date for the arrival of Mr. Burns to Cyprus,`` Palmas said.

    Replying to questions, the Spokesman noted that ``both Britain and the US have over the years played a very substantive role in the Cyprus problem and of course their involvement and re-engagement in the proper framework is welcome, in cooperation with the other members of the Security Council, where this government managed to get them re-engaged, and engaged with regard to various initiatives on the Cyprus problem.``

    [02] NICOSIA - LONDON - REPRESENTATIONS

    ‘he government has made representations immediately on being informed of a complaint by a Greek Cypriot refugee that the British High Commission in Nicosia had advised him to apply to the so-called compensation commission for Greek Cypriot properties in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus.

    Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas noted that the official position of the High Commission was that contained in a statement on Thursday, which says that it advised no one to apply to the so-called commission. He added that the government expected the High Commission to deal with the case of its member of staff, with whom the refugee spoke. Replying to questions, Palmas said the statement clearly says the position of the High Commission and the United Kingdom remains unchanged and that the employee had acted on a personal level.

    Referring to complaints voiced in the House of Representatives that Greek Cypriots were selling properties in the Turkish occupied areas belonging to refugees, the Spokesman said the government was aware of certain facts and that the Attorney General was handling the case. He said the government would be fully informed when those who know details presented them to the Ministry of the Interior.
