    [01] UN - Cyprus

    Nicosia, Dec 18 (CNA) -- The UN Secretary-General's Spokesman Fred Eckhard yesterday said an addendum to a report on the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) does not signify a change in UN policy but outlines the positions of the sides involved.

    At the same time UN Under-secretary for peace-keeping Bernarnd Miyet told Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides that the organisation adheres to its resolutions and assured the UN will make no move that may in any way constitute recognition of the illegal regime in the areas of Cyprus occupied by Turkey since 1974.

    [02] Cyprus government - UN - Clarifications

    Nicosia, Dec 18 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government appears satisfied with clarifications given by the UN on an addendum to a report on the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP), used by the Turkish Foreign Ministry to support that the organisation is moving towards recognition of the illegal regime in the Turkish occupied areas of the island.

    Invited today by CNA to comment on statements on the issue by the UN Secretary-General's Spokesman, Cyprus Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou described them as "a move that clarify the situation".

    [03] Cyprus - Christmas tree - Missing persons

    Nicosia, Dec 18 (CNA) -- A christmas tree with 1617 yellow ribbons dedicated to the Greek-Cypriots and Greeks missing since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus stands at the Ledra Palace checkpoint in Nicosia as from today, symbolising the hope that their fate will be established.

    Relatives of the missing persons, members of the Cyprus Anti- occupation Movement and refugee associations as well as students tied the yellow ribbons on the tree with the names of the missing persons written on them.
