  • [01] GREEK-TURKISH CYPRIOT PARTIES MEET

    Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot politicians and Slovak Foreign Minister Jan Kubis have evaluated the impact of meetings of political parties on the process of rapprochement between the island`s two communities.

    The leaders and representatives of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot parties have participated in a special bicomunal meeting, organised by the Slovak embassy here on the occasion of Kubis` visit to Cyprus.

    ``They have evaluated the impact of the meetings at Ledra Palace on the process of rapprochement of the politicians and both communities in Cyprus and exchanged views on this prospect,`` a joint communnique read out by the Slovak Ambassador to Cyprus Jan Varso said.

    The next meeting will be held on the 27th of June.

    [02] SPOKESMAN - UNFICYP - RESOLUTION

    Cypriot Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas has said that the government was ``constantly on the alert`` regarding a UN Security Council draft resolution on the renewal of the mandate of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP). The government, he noted, is monitoring developments on a reference to the so-called isolation of the Turkish Cypriots in a UN report on UNFICYP.

    ``The government is constantly alert. Cyprus` Permanent Representative to the UN, as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its various services, are monitoring the situation and doing all which has to be done in order to secure that which we consider should be secured,`` he added.

    The UN reference was in favour of ending what it called "the isolation" of the Turkish Cypriot community, through efforts by the international community. The government of Cyprus maintains that the "isolation" is the direct result of the continuing Turkish occupation of Cyprus` northern part and the division of the country, since 1974, when Turkey invaded.
