  • [01] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS UN SECRETARY GENERAL - MEETING

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias currently in Paris to attend the Summit for the Mediterranean will meet on Sunday morning UN Secretary General Ban Ki moon, to discuss developments in efforts to solve the Cyprus problem.

    President Christofias will also have a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Bachar Al-Assad.

    Foreign Minister Marcos Kyprianou and Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou accompany President Christofias to Paris.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory. On July 25, President Christofias will meet with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, for the fourth time after Christofias election as President of Cyprus in February 2008, to review the work done by the technical committees and working groups set up by the two sides, with a view to prepare the ground for the beginning of direct fully-fledged negotiations.

    [02] PARIS UNION FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN

    France will host on Sunday the Paris Summit for the Mediterranean which is the inaugural summit for the launching of the proposed Union for the Mediterranean, with a view to give a fresh impetus to the Barcelona Process.

    Launched a little over a year ago by the French Head of State Nicolas Sarkozy, the Union for the Mediterranean project, which aims to strengthen and deepen the cooperation between both sides of the Mediterranean, will be officially inaugurated today at the Paris Summit for the Mediterranean. The will bring together 43 European and Mediterranean States, the Community institutions and the regional organisations. Cyprus will be represented by its President Demetris Christofias. Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi has already rejected the proposal to set up the Union saying that it would be an ``international minefield`` as it would increase illegal immigration, terrorism and extremism.

    The Union for the Mediterranean project is based on three simple principles: a political mobilisation at the highest level through Summits of Heads of State and Government every two years, a governance on an equal footing, in the form of a North-South co-presidency and a permanent secretariat with equal representation, a prioritising of concrete projects with a regional dimension that create de facto solidarity.
