    Cyprus Government welcomes approval of UN resolution 1548

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Jun 12 (CNA) - The Cyprus government welcomed the adoption by the UN Security Council of resolution 1548, renewing the mandate of the peacekeeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) for another six months.

    Speaking to the press after the adoption of the resolution, Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis thanked the members of the Security Council for their support and understanding adding that ''the presence of the peacekeeping force is necessary because the conditions on the ground defined by the presence of the occupation army and the existence of the buffer zone and all other problems we have on the ground have not changed.''

    Mavroyiannis added that the Council Resolution refers to the existing problems on the ground, to the restrictions imposed by the occupation army, to the problem of Strovilia, to the lack of cooperation on behalf of the occupation authorities and expressed hope that in the coming months it will be possible to take up all these issues.

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    New York, June 12 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan discussed the Cyprus questions and ways of sustaining the dialogue on the issue, at a meeting they had in Boston on Thursday during a graduation ceremony of ''JFK School of Government''.

    A UN official told CNA the meeting lasted about 25 minutes and Erdogan thanked the UN Secretary General for commending, in his report for his good offices' mission for Cyprus, Turkey's role as regards the acceptance of his peace plan and to the whole procedure of talks.

    He also thanked him for calling on the international community to ease the isolation of the Turkish Cypriots.

    During the meeting it was stressed that the current status quo can not last, since events on the ground have changed the situation.

    Anan and Erdogan agreed to keep in touch.
