    Russia vetoes US-British backed resolution on Cyprus

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Apr 22 (CNA) -- Russia blocked last night a Security Council resolution on Cyprus, supported by the US and Britain, saying this was done for ''technical reasons'', meaning a disagreement on the procedure for the adoption of the resolution.

    The draft was put forward three days only before a referendum in Cyprus, among Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, on a UN proposal for a political settlement, the Annan plan.

    Russia justifies veto on Cyprus resolution

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Apr 22 (CNA) -- Russia, which vetoed a Security Council resolution on Cyprus ahead of a crucial vote on Saturday on a UN solution plan, said the matters included in the draft, such as an arms embargo and the operation of a renewed and strengthened UN operation, necessitated thorough discussion.

    The result of the voting was 14 in favour to 1 against (Russian Federation). The draft was not adopted, owing to the negative vote by a permanent member of the Council.

    Britain and the US, the co-sponsors of the resolution, expressed disappointment at this development, saying that the resolution would have provided security assurances to the Cypriot people that the proposed UN settlement would be in place before 24 April, when a referendum will take place among Greek and Turkish Cypriots.
