  • [01] CYPRUS- EU PROPOSALS

    The European Union Finnish Presidency initiative to avert a crisis in EU-Turkey relations cannot bear fruit if it does not envisage the return of the fenced-off town of Famagusta to its legal inhabitants, Cypriot Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis has said.

    Speaking to Greek Cypriots in London, Pashiardis said that Turkey cannot claim that the return of Famagusta must be part of a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem, when Ankara itself demands the opening of the town`s port before a final settlement.

    ``Turkey is obliged to fulfil the commitments it has assumed. If it cannot do so or refuses to do so, why should Cyprus pay a price to facilitate Turkey`s EU bid?`` Pashiardis wondered. He reiterated that the Greek Cypriot side`s objective is a functional and viable solution in line with UN principles and EU values and the agreed basis of a bizonal and bicommunal federation, which would truly reunite the people and the country and that would establish peace, security and prosperity for all the people, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots.

    [02] RALLY TROODOS - QATAR DRIVER WINS

    Qatar`s Nasser Al-Attiyah has won the 2006 Troodos Rally, the penultimate round of the 2006 FIA Middle East Rally Championship (MERC), securing his second consecutive MERC title.

    Attiyah with a Subaru Impreza secured an easy victory, since he scored the fastest times in eleven of the twelve special stages of the two-day event. This is his fourth consecutive victory in the Troodos Rally.

    Cypriot Andreas Tsouloftas aboard a Mitsubishi Lance EVO IX finished second, while UAE`s Suhail AL Maktoum, Attiyah`s arch-rival in the Middle East Championship, aboard a Subaru Impreza, finished third.
