  • [01] PRESIDENT PAPADOPOULOS - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    The government of Cyprus has already conveyed to the United Nations its positions regarding the provisions it can accept in the framework of a future solution of the Cyprus problem, said President of the Republic of Cyprus Tassos Papadopoulos.

    We know very well which provisions we are ready to accept and which not. With the same certainty, we know which provisions the solution should include so that it is just, viable and functional. We have repeatedly expressed our positions which we have conveyed to the UN, he noted.

    Speaking in Paphos at the inauguration ceremony of a Resistance Park to commemorate those who lost their lives defending democracy in Cyprus, President Papadopoulos said that the government of Cyprus has determined the substantive issues that should be discussed in the framework of the July 8th agreement so that a basis is created for a solution of the Cyprus problem, in line with the High Level Agreements of 1977 and 1979, the UN principles, the International Law and the principles and values on which the EU is founded.

    The Cypriot President stressed that ``those who pretend they are not aware of our goals and the kind of solution we pursue, are just trying to present their unconfessed position that the only solution plan, on the basis of which negotiations can begin, is the plan that the overwhelming majority of Greek Cypriots have rejected during the 2004 referenda, namely the Annan plan.

    [02] JULY AGREEMENT - MEETINGS

    No date has been set for a meeting between representatives of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, in the context of a UN-brokered agreement in July last year, Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas has said.

    Palmas said there is no scheduled meeting either between the Director of the Diplomatic Office of the President of Cyprus Tasos Tzionis and the aide of the Turkish Cypriot leader Rasit Pertev or between Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    Palmas was responding to comments by Talats spokesman Hasan Ercakica that a meeting between Papadopoulos and Talat could take place if the Greek Cypriot side wants it.

    [03] CY PILOTS - STRIKE

    Cyprus Airways pilots have announced they will go on a five-hour work stoppage on Saturday (July 21), which will affect about 1200 passengers on four flights to and from Paris, London, Manchester and Athens.

    Cyprus Airways has condemned the strike, called to protest ``the violation of the terms of the collective agreement``, according to the pilots trade union PASIPI. CY has assured passengers that it would do all it can to make alternative arrangements for the passengers concern to avoid any hassle.

    PASIPI President Andreas Georgiou maintains that for the past two years Cyprus Airways ``has been violating unilaterally the collective agreement``, which he said must be respected. He told CNA that CY has been duly notified about Saturdays strike, recalling that the decision to take measures against the violation of the agreement was taken unanimously at the trade unions AGM four months ago.

    [04] GREEK EDUCATION MINISTER - VISIT

    Marietta Yiannakou, Greek Minister of National Education and Religion, arrives in Cyprus on Thursday on a five-day official visit, to represent the Greek government in commemorative events to mark 33 years since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. The visit takes place at the invitation of her Cypriot counterpart Akis Kleanthous, who will have talks with Yiannakou on matters of mutual interest on two consecutive days.
