  • [01] CYPRIOT FM BRUSSELS

    Cypriot Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou begins a series of meetings in Brussels with his European counterparts on the sidelines of the General Affairs and External Relations Council which will take place on 10 March in Brussels, chaired by the President of the Council, Slovenian Foreign Minister Dr Dimitrij Rupel.

    Kyprianou, on his first trip back to Brussels since his appointment to the head of the Foreign Ministry after serving as the islands first EU commissioner, told CNA that he will have bilateral contacts with his Swedish counterpart and with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband. During the meetings various issues will be discussed, including the Cyprus problem which is in the priorities.

    He also said that with Miliband they will discuss newly elected President Demetris Christofias visit to London although the date has not yet been decided.

    In Brussels, Kyprianou will also meet Javier Solana, European Union High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), and hold a working lunch with Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn.

    Kyprianou will remain in Brussels until Wednesday when President Demetris Christofias will travel to the Belgian capital for the European Council meeting on 13-14 March.

    According to the Cypriot FM, Christofias will meet European Parliament President Hans-Gert Poettering and President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso as well as EU leaders. Christofias meeting with Barroso, conveys an important message because it is the first official meeting which the new president will have after his consultations in Athens, said Kyprianou.

    [02] US STATE DEPARTMENT - CYPRUS

    The United States believe a resolution of the situation in Cyprus is very important, said Deputy Spokesman and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the United States Department of State, Thomas Casey.

    Invited to give the US position on statements by the Secretary General Special Representative in Cyprus, Michael Moeller, that the status quo in Cyprus is unacceptable and the settlement is in the interest of all Cypriots, Casey said our perspective on Cyprus remains the same.

    We believe it`s very important that there be a resolution of the situation in Cyprus. We think it is important that the leaders - the Government of Cyprus as well as the leaders of the Turkish Cypriot community have expressed an interest in speaking to one another and engaging in dialogue on this issue. I think that`s very important, he noted.

    [03] IOANNOU - IAAF - BRONZE MEDAL

    Cypriot high-jumper Kyriacos Ioannou made his homeland proud once again after winning the bronze medal during the 12th IAAF World Indoor Championships mens high jump final.

    Osaka bronze medalist Ioannous attempt at 2.30m in the IAAF Valencia games gave him the bronze medal, which he will also share with 2002 World Junior Champion Andra Manson (USA).
