    The UN is obliged to defend both the agreed process as well as the agreed basis for a solution to the Cyprus problem, Director of the Office of the President of the Republic Christos Christofides has said.

    Addressing a ceremony for the burial of Ioannis Savvides, who died in a ambush by Turkish troops in 1974 and his remains were identified with the DNA identification process, Christofides warned that the toleration of attitudes that undermine the solution basis ``is like giving the green light to Turkey to continue its unacceptable and illegal division of the island, since the ongoing talks cannot reach their aim for a solution to the Cyprus problem.``

    ``Our side is more than ready for a solution to the Cyprus problem but not any solution. We are not ready to accept a bad solution which would essentially constitute the closure of the Cyprus problem with negative consequences on the future of our people,`` Christofides went on to say.

    He pointed out that Turkish provocation is clearly manifested with regard to Cyprus` exploratory drilling in its Exclusive Economic Zone.


    Marina Yiannakoudakis, UK MEP, member of the European Parliament`s High Level Contact Group with the Turkish Cypriot Community, has called on the Cypriots to step in and assist the efforts to reunify Cyprus.

    In a statement following a visit of the Contact Group to Cyprus, Yiannakoudakis said that there is a long way to go in the UN-backed settlement talks, but as long the two sides keep talking there is hope.

    ``However politicians need to take a leaf out of the book of the two communities who are already working together,`` she pointed out. She referred to projects such as the Committee for Missing Persons and the Crisis Management Committee, noting that these ``show how well Greek and Turkish Cypriots can work together.``

    ``Nevertheless, time is running out and the losers will be the Turkish Cypriots. I fear that the Turkish Cypriots will suffer as the minority in their own country not because of the Greek Cypriots but because of the Turkish occupying forces,`` Yiannakoudakis pointed out. Turkish and Greek Cypriots can live together, it`s the interference of Turkey that has caused the problem, Yiannakoudakis concluded.


    Cyprus, along with Germany, France, Austria, Finland and Switzerland, will be the first Council of Europe member state to ratify the International Treaty on counterfeit medical products (MEDICRIME Convention).

    Adopted on 8 December 2010, the Convention will be open for signature as of 26 October on the occasion of a high-level conference to be organised in Moscow, Russia.

    The Convention establishes as offences the manufacturing, supplying and trafficking of counterfeit medical products.
