  • [01] PRESIDENT APPOINTS FOUR NEW MINISTERS

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Tassos Papadopoulos appointed on Friday four new Ministers, after the resignation of four members of his Cabinet in the wake of the dissolution of the tri-party coalition due to AKELs decision to run for the presidential elections with its own General Secretary Demetris Christofias as candidate.

    President Papadopoulos appointed Maria Malahtou Papalli as Minister of Communications and Works, Costas Kadis as Minister of Health, Erato Kozakou Markoulli as Minster of Foreign Affairs and Christos Patsalides as Minister of the Interior.

    According to an official press release, the new Ministers will be sworn in on Monday at a special ceremony at the Presidential Palace.

    On Wednesday, AKELs Ministers submitted their resignations to President Papadopoulos.

    [02] PAPADOPOULOS - TALAT - MEETING -CANCELLATION

    Cyprus Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas has confirmed that Rasit Pertev, adviser to the Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, said that due to the postponement of an illegal football match between Turkish Cypriot team Centikaya and British Luton, which was due to take place Wednesday in Cyprus Turkish occupied areas, a meeting between Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos and Talat would not take place.

    Pertev announced the Turkish Cypriot side`s decision for the cancellation of the meeting between Papadopoulos and Talat during a meeting held Thursday between him, the Director of Cyprus President`s Diplomatic Office Tasos Tzionis and the UNSG Special Representative to Cyprus, Michael Moller.

    ``We hope that Talat will make second thoughts so that the meeting will take place and the 8 July agreement will begin,`` Palmas said.

    President Papadopoulos sent recently two letters to Talat, one on the issue of the missing persons and another on a UN-brokered agreement a year ago

    A UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) Spokesman told CNA ``we continue to stand by the 8th July agreement having warmly welcomed the agreement between Mr Papadopoulos and Talat to meet``.

    [03] G/C - T/C MISSING IDENTIFICATIONS - BURIALS

    The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus has so far notified the families of 28 persons, 15 Greek Cypriots and 13 Turkish Cypriots, listed as missing, whose remains have been exhumed recently in Cyprus.
