    Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos and the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Mehmet Ali Talat have appealed to the international community for ``urgent and generous contributions`` to help the work of the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP).

    A CMP press release, issued after a meeting between Papadopoulos and Talat, said that their presence at today`s meeting was ``tangible`` proof of support and reaffirmation of their commitment to the work of the CMP.

    This was the first time Papadopoulos and Talat met after peace talks on a comprehensive settlement in Cyprus ended in failure in March 2004.

    ``The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) is pleased to announce that Mr Christophe Girod has officially taken up his duties as Third Member of the Committee, during a formal event held within the United Nations Protected Area,`` the press release said.

    ``The CMP was honoured by the presence at the event of their Excellencies, Mr. Tassos Papadopoulos and Mr. Mehmet Ali Talat. The Members of the CMP welcomed their presence as a tangible message of support and was gratified by the reaffirmation of their commitment to the progress of the work of the Committee,`` it added.

    Furthermore it pointed out that ``the CMP also noted with gratitude that the leaders jointly appealed to the international community for urgent and generous contributions to the work of the Committee.``

    The Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Michael Moller, who hosted the event, welcomed Girod.

    ``He emphasised the importance of the work being carried out by the CMP and hoped that his arrival as a full-time Member of the Committee will help accelerate the closing of this painful chapter in the history of Cyprus,`` the CMP press release said.

    The two Cypriot Members (a Greek Cypriot and a Turkish Cypriot) also welcomed Girod and stated that the strengthening of the Committee will contribute to the implementation of its humanitarian mandate for the benefit of the families of missing persons in Cyprus.
