  • [01] UN CHIEF - DOWNER

    UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon informed the Security Council members on Friday of his intention to appoint former Australian Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexander Downer as his special adviser on the Cyprus problem.

    Furthermore, it was confirmed that the UN chief will be meeting in Paris on July 13 with President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and in Berlin on July 15 with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    [02] HOUSE - PRICES - EURO

    The plenary of the House of Representatives adopted yesterday a law proposal for the extension, until the end of December 2008, of the compulsory dual display (in Cyprus pounds and euros) of goods and services prices.

    The proposal, submitted by Marinos Sizopoulos, member of the Cyprus Movement of Social Democrats EDEK, was adopted by 21 votes in favour and 20 votes against.

    The extension of the compulsory dual display of prices is necessary for the better understanding of the market and the cost of the goods and services, despite the fact that consumers have significantly adjusted to the euro, Sizopoulos said.


    The Australian division of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) will be holding an extraordinary congress in Cyprus on July 14. The congress is being organised in cooperation with the Overseas and Repatriated Cypriots Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    The congress is being organised on the occasion of the 54th world congress of AHEPA, which took place in Athens from July 1 to 7.

    According to a press release, the purpose of Monday`s congress in Cyprus is to brief the members of AHEPA on Cyprus and its political problem, with the cooperation of all organisations involved in enlightenment, with an aim to further contribute towards the struggle for justice and the implementation of UN resolutions.
