  • [01] LEBANON - EVACUEES

    More than 2,500 foreign nationals arrived in Cyprus on Friday night to Saturday morning aboard ships coming from war-battered Lebanon.

    French armoured vehicle carrier ``Sirocco`` docked at Larnaca Port with 600 French citizens, who spent the night on the vessel and disembarked on Saturday morning.

    At around midnight, Cypriot cruise ship ``Princesa Marissa`` arrived with 497 passengers and ``Blue Dawn`` with 101 passengers, mostly Canadians.

    In the early hours of Saturday morning, cruise ship ``Serenade`` docked at Larnaca Port with 405 foreign nationals, mainly Canadians, followed by helicopter carrier ``Mistral`` with 1.371 French citizens.

    Furthermore, French navy frigate ``Jean de Vienne`` arrived from Lebanon on Saturday morning with some 200 passengers.

    [02] PAPADOPOULOS - COMMITTEES

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said no annotations would be submitted on Monday at the meetings of the technical committees, which will deal with preparing the ground for talks on the Cyprus problem, adding that ``we will give the issues we think should be discussed by the experts.``

    Speaking in Paphos yesterday and asked about Turkish remarks that the Cyprus problem would not stand in the way of Turkey`s EU accession course, President Papadopoulos said this was a standing position of Ankara.

    ``We say that Turkey has obligations towards the EU and must meet its obligations,`` he pointed out.

    [03] BAKOYIANNIS - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Dora Bakoyiannis said that the solution of the Cyprus problem remains the main objective of Athens` policy, and that the reunification of the island with a just, viable and functional settlement will be to the benefit of all, including the stability, peace and prosperity of the region.

    Addressing a gathering of overseas Greeks, Bakoyiannis said that in the context of its policy to strengthen ties between the countries of the region and Europe, Athens is supporting Turkey`s EU accession course.

    Bakoyiannis pointed out that ``Greece`s position is that, if Turkey manages to meet the European criteria and preconditions and fully adapt to the acquis communautaire, then the conclusion of its effort should be its full accession to the EU.``
