    by Maria Myles

    New York, Dec 7 (CNA) -- A draft resolution on Cyprus, consisting of eight paragraphs and expected to be adopted by the UN Security Council, includes the bare minimum of provisions necessary for the renewal of the UN peace-keeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) mandate and the renewal and support of the UN Secretary-General's good offices mission on Cyprus.
