  • [01] SYRIAN PRESIDENT - MESSAGE TO CYPRIOT PRESIDENT

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a message to Cypriot President Demetris Christofias has confirmed the need to maintain the excellent relations between the two countries.

    In his message, conveyed by Deputy Foreign Minister Fayssal Mekdad, President Assad also expresses wishes to newly elected President Christofias for success, as well as for cooperation regarding the problems our region is facing nowadays.

    Responding to question regarding the illegal sea routes between Latakia and the closed port of Famagusta in the Turkish occupied north the Syrian official said that his Government knows that this is an issue dear to the Cypriot people, noting that there are a lot of ways to solve all these controversies.

    We hope that not only on this but on many other issues this will never separate the spirit of friendship between the countries, Makdad said concluding there are solutions for everything.

    Famagusta has been declared by the government of Cyprus a closed port following the 1974 Turkish invasion of the island.

    The UN has branded the illegal regime in occupied Cyprus legally invalid and called on all states not to recognise or facilitate it in any way.

    The Republic of Cyprus entered the EU in May 2004. Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern third.

    [02] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - RETURN FROM GREECE - SATISFACTION

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias returned home Thursday evening fully satisfied with his visit to Greece, expressing the belief that his meetings with the Greek political leadership will contribute to the tightening of the already excellent relations between Cyprus and Greece.

    Referring to his forthcoming meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, to take place 17 to 24 of March, Christofias said that before this meeting Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou will meet with Talats advisor Ozdil Nami to ascertain whether all issues are settled with a view to move forward with the meeting with Talat.
