    Famagusta municipality takes its case to Brussels

    by Nicos Bellos

    Brussels, Feb 18 (CNA) -- The municipal council of the Turkish occupied town of Famagusta took its case to Brussels this week in a bid to press on with their demand for the return of the town to its legal inhabitants.

    Famagusta Mayor Yiannakis Skordis said such a move would contribute to a climate of trust between the island's two communities and to moves for the restoration of the destroyed town, which needs to be rebuilt after 30 years of abandonment, when its Greek Cypriot residents fled the advancing Turkish troops in the summer of 1974.

    Valetta, Feb 18 (CNA) - Maltese Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi has expressed hope that there will soon be positive developments in the Cyprus problem, and offered his country's good offices, wherever necessary, to promote a Cyprus settlement.
