    Cypriot members of Parliament have stressed the need to implement UN resolutions on all international issues, including Cyprus, during the 5th Plenary Session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM), which concluded Saturday in Rabat, Morocco.

    During the discussion at the ad hoc committee on the Middle East, the Cypriot delegation condemned the role of Turkey in Cyprus and referred to the 1974 Turkish invasion, the continuing occupation and its consequences. The delegation pointed out that the Cypriot people and their leadership have been fighting for 36 years to find a viable and functional solution that serves the interests of all Cypriot citizens and promote peace and security throughout the Eastern Mediterranean.

    These views caused the reaction of the Turkish delegation, which put forward the Turkish positions on the Cyprus problem.


    The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, President Demetris Christofias and Dervis Eroglu, to New York for a meeting on November 18.

    Upon the invitation of the Secretary-General, a meeting is scheduled to take place between the Secretary-General and the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities on 18 November in New York.
