  • [01] BRITAIN - CYPRUS QUESTION

    The omens for both sides in Cyprus negotiating in complete seriousness are very high and Britain will do everything it can, including on the issue of the British sovereign bases, to provide incentives to make such negotiations a success, British Minister of State of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Lord Malloch-Brown has said.

    Brown was replying to a question by former British special representative on Cyprus Lord David Hannay, who asked the Minister to confirm the importance in any resumed negotiations of the two Cypriot parties taking full ownership of the process from the outset up to and beyond its conclusion and that in the context of an emerging settlement the British Government will renew the offer made in 2003 to hand over a substantial part of the sovereign base areas to a reunited Cyprus.

    Brown said that ``we now have a new President in Cyprus with a new and fresh mandate who is committed to negotiations`` adding that Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat has been committed since he came to office to finding an agreement. ``The omens for both sides taking ownership of this and negotiating in complete seriousness are very high. Of course we will do everything we can-including on the issue of the sovereign bases-to provide incentives to make such negotiations a success,`` he noted.

    [02] VIETNAM - CYPRUS QUESTION

    Vietnamese representative to the United Nations Security Council said his country supports efforts to resolve the Cyprus question.

    According to Vietnamese news agency VietnamNet Bridge, Vietnams UN Security Council Ambassador Bui The Giang told the Council on April 15 that a recent agreement between Greek and Turkish communities on the island has been encouraging.

    We welcome some encouraging progress made at a UN-sponsored meeting on March 21 between leaders of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities, during which the two sides agreed to start fully-fledged negotiations within three months to resolve the prolonged dispute on the island, Ambassador Giang said.

    [03] FIBA EUROCUP - FINAL

    Belgian basketball team Dexia Mons will face Barons (Latvia) in the final game for the 2008 edition of the FIBA EuroCup, which takes place in the southern coastal town of Limassol in Cyprus.

    Dexia Mons beat Friday Cypriot team AEL in the second semi-final 70 -55, while earlier Barons secured its position in the final after eliminating Tartu Rock (Estonia) 88 - 82.
