  • [01] Cyprus protests - UN - Turkish military exercise

  • [01] Cyprus protests - UN - Turkish military exercise

    The Republic of Cyprus` Permanent Representative at the UN, Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis, protested in a letter to the UN Secretary General about the military exercise, conducted illegally by the Turkish forces south of Cyprus using sea and air means, between 2 and 5 May, 2007.

    Turkeys military exercise violated the rules and regulations of the Air Traffic Control. Moreover, the Turkish army did not inform the competent Cyprus Republics authorities about its intentions to conduct the exercise, Mavroyiannis says in his letter.

    The exercise falls within the Turkish tactic to create a climate of tension in the region, Mavroyiannis indicates in his letter, stressing that the exercise, which was conducted very near the Republics airports and ports, endangered the safety of the passengers.

    The government of Cyprus deems that the continuous provocative Turkish actions and the military exercise that was conducted recently, seek to exert pressure Mavroyiannis notes, adding that the Turkish actions aim at questioning the legal rights of the Republic of Cyprus to exploit its natural resources.

    The Cypriot UN Permanent Representative also refers to the violations of the UN Charta by Turkey, a member of the international organization, adding that such actions jeopardize the regional safety in the Eastern Mediterranean.

    The Republic of Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Cyprus became a full EU member state in May 2004.


    Cypriot Paraolympic Games gold medalist (ATHENS 2004), Carolina Pelendritou, broke Friday the world record in women`s 100 metres Breaststroke, during Eurowaves Open Cup For All Europeans 2007, held in Czech Republic.

    Pelendritou, who is accompanied by her Greek trainer Yiannis Alexakis, changed the world record time to 1:19:30.

    This is the second time in 15 days that Pelendritou breaks the world record. Her previous record time was 1:19:31.
