    [01] Cyprus government - UNFICYP mandate renewal

    Nicosia, May 31 (CNA) - The government has indicated it is not prepared to accept any attempt by the UN to seek the consent of the Turkish Cypriot side for the renewal of the mandate of the UN peace-keeping force, as this would constitute a change in the policy followed so far.

    "Diplomatic moves are underway and measures are being taken to promote our political positions," Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou told his daily briefing today in view of the Secretary General's report renewing UNFICYP's mandate, expected to be issued in the next few days.

    [02] UN report - Letter

    Nicosia, May 31 (CNA) -- A UN report, on the renewal of the mandate of the UN peace-keeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP), is not expected to include an addendum, as requested by the Turkish Cypriot side in a bid to edge closer to having the UN acknowledge the presence of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime in occupied Cyprus.

    According to reliable sources, the Turkish side has been working over the past weeks with a view to persuade UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to include a stipulation in the report to the effect that it is necessary to secure the consent of the Turkish Cypriot side with regard to the renewal of the six- monthly mandate of UNFICYP.
