  • [02] CYPRUS - TURKEY - UN
  • [04] PALMAS - TURKEY


    Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Boris Gryzlov assured on Monday that Russia would continue to support a solution of the Cyprus problem, on the basis of UN Security Council decisions and resolutions.

    Gryzlov, who is currently visiting Cyprus, met with House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias. Speaking after the meeting, they both said they found common positions on the Cyprus problem and the international political situation.

    Speaking through an interpreter, Gryzlov said ``we will continue to support the positions we have supported so far, which are positions for a Cyprus settlement based on UN Security Council decisions and resolutions.``

    Christofias said during their meeting ``we reaffirmed the commitment of both countries to principles, the principles of international law, the principles of the UN, on the Cyprus problem and the international political situation.``

    He furthermore expressed gratitude for Russia`s support to the struggle of the Cypriot people at the UN and other international organisations.

    Christofias said he was satisfied with the level of relations between the Republic of Cyprus and the Russian Federation and expressed the common wish to strengthen these ties.

    [02] CYPRUS - TURKEY - UN

    Cyprus` Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis, in a letter to the UN Secretary General, protested the new violations of international air traffic regulations and the national airspace of the Republic of Cyprus by Turkish military aircrafts recorded from 6 April to 31 May 2007.

    In his letter, which was circulated as a General Assembly document, Mavroyiannis notes that these violations ``blatantly endanger the safety of international civil aviation and contravene international law and air traffic regulations.``

    He also noted that these violations ``put at stake the peace and stability of the region,`` calling for ``their immediate cessation.``


    Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis said on Monday that a comprehensive, just and viable solution of the Cyprus problem, in line with UN and EU decisions, would contribute to the stability and development of the region.

    Speaking at a press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after a meeting in Constantinople, Karamanlis said Greece supports Turkey in its bid to join the EU, as long as the preconditions, set out by the Union, are met.

    ``I reiterated to Mr. Erdogan that Greece supports the continuation of the reform and the efforts the Turkish government is making,`` Karamanlis said.

    [04] PALMAS - TURKEY

    Cypriot Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said on Monday that Cyprus would never accept Turkey`s behaviour to act as a regional policeman and would never give up its rights emanating from international law.

    Asked what stance Cyprus would maintain in view of new chapters being opened in Turkey`s EU accession course, in the light of threats by the Turkish National Security Council against Cyprus, Palmas said ``we are evaluating each chapter separately and, depending on the chapter and its content, we determine our stance.``

    ``However, it is clear that the stance and the behaviour of the National Security Council of Turkey reflect once again the attitude and the expansionist disposition and aspiration of Turkey in the region,`` he added.
