    Cyprus has made a proposal for the solution of the problem that lead to the conflict between Israeli army and Hezbollah, Cypriot Foreign Minister George Lillikas said.

    Without elaborating, Lillikas said that the proposal, submitted ten days ago, could not be promoted because the conflict continued. ``So far there is no mediation because the conflict continues, but if there is an end to hostilities, our proposal could be used``, he added.

    Lillikas also said that Cyprus is in favour of an immediate ceasefire ``because the continuation of the conflict does not offer anything more than the increase of the victims.``
