  • [01] CYPRIOT PRESIDENT MOLLER REPLACEMENT

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos expressed hope here Wednesday that the UN Secretary- Generals Special Representative in Cyprus and Chief of Mission, Michael Moller will not be replaced.

    Invited to comment on reports by CNA that UN chief Ban Ki-moon gave way to pressure exerted by Ankara and it is likely that he will replace his special representative on the island, Papadopoulos replied that these reports have been circulating for about six months now.

    We have no say, of course, President Papadopoulos said pointing out that it is the Secretary General who decides on the matter.

    Cypriot President added that what is at risk is not the individual but the principle, explaining that because one of the two sides, in this case the Turkish side which is disaffected to Mr. Moller, does not want a certain interlocutor this does not mean he or she should be replaced.

    I hope he is not replaced, the President remarked.

    According to the CNA correspondent in New York, Ankara believes that Moller favours Greek Cypriots and he is responsible for the 8 July Agreement, which Turkey has always disagreed with.

    Ban, with the help of UN Deputy Secretary General Lynn Pascoe, has drawn up a list with three candidates, all female, to replace Moller.

    [02] US HOUSE 8 JULY AGREEMENT SUPPORT

    The US House of Representatives passed Tuesday unanimously a resolution supporting the implementation the UN-brokered 8 July, 2006, agreement on Cyprus.

    The resolution was authored by Representatives Gus M. Bilirakis, a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues, who said that the passage of the resolution demonstrates the House of Representatives commitment to the implementation of the July 8 agreement as a means of achieving the ultimate goal of a unified Cyprus.

    As a valued friend and ally of the United States, it is the hope of this body that the July 8 framework be utilized to work out differences in order for Cyprus to once again enjoy a peaceful and sovereign existence, he added.

    The resolution acknowledges the key terms of the July 8, 2006 agreement, particularly the formation of a bi-communal, bi-zonal federation with territory allocated to the Greek and Turkish communities within a united Cyprus.

    The resolution also calls on the US government to fully support the immediate implementation of the July 8 agreement ``in its entirety and without deviation from that process``.

    [03] COMMISSION CYPRUS LIVESTOCK CULLING

    The European Commission will look into ways to minimize the impact on Cyprus of the order of the Court of Justice of the European Communities for as many as 116 thousand sheep and goats on the island to be culled over scrapie fears. In response to a question by CNA on the ruling of Court of First Instance, the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus said the Commission plans to appeal this order by the Court of First Instance to suspend the application of the regulation pending the final Court judgment.

    In addition, it said, the Commission will look into ways to minimize the impact of the Court order on Cyprus.

    [04] CYPRIOT FM KYRGYZSTAN VISIT

    Cypriot Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou Marcoullis completed her visit to Kyrgyzstan, the first ever official visit by a Cypriot FM in the country.

    During her visit, Marcoullis held meetings with high ranking Kyrgyzstan officials and decisions were taken to promote cooperation in the fields of health, culture, commerce, economy and education, with the aim to deepen the relations of friendship between the two peoples.

    Marcoullis met Foreign Minister Ednan Karabaev and exchanged views on strengthening cooperation between the two ministries. They also examined international issues related to EUs cooperation with Central Asia countries.

    On her part, the Cypriot Minister informed all officials on the latest developments on Cyprus and was assured that Kyrgyzstan will continue to promote the reunification of Cyprus based on international law and UN Security Council resolutions, which it respects and implements.
