  • [01] GREEK CYPRIOT SIDE - NAMI REMARKS

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou stressed that the Greek Cypriot side will not discuss the Cyprus problem on the basis of a UN-proposed solution plan, which it rejected in a referendum four years ago.

    Commenting on remarks by Ozdil Nami, adviser to Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, that negotiations for a solution will be on the basis of the Annan plan, Stephanou said the position of the Greek Cypriot side is well known.

    ``The position of our side and that of the government is well known. We are not engaging in talks on the basis of the Annan plan. Our side is participating with its own positions in the dialogue which has begun at the working groups and the technical committees,`` he pointed out.

    ``We are beginning a process. There will be discussions, dialogue. We have said that it is very likely to have problems in this dialogue, given the differences in our positions,`` he said, adding that ``we should be patient, the dialogue will continue.``

    Six working groups and seven technical committees, comprising experts from the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, are currently engaged in discussions of substantive issues as well as day to day concerns that affect the people. The purpose of the exercise is to prepare the ground for substantive negotiations between the leaders of the two communities, who have agreed to meet in three months time to review the progress achieved by these preparatory discussions.

    In an interview with the daily newspaper ``Phileleftheros``, Nami said the aim of the Turkish Cypriot side was for negotiations to be held on the basis of the Annan plan.

    [02] SPOKESMAN - ECHR - CYPRUS

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou said that the Cyprus problem cannot be solved in the courts but through comprehensive negotiations that will lead to a mutually accepted settlement.

    Commenting on decisions by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in two cases concerning Greek Cypriot property in Turkish occupied Cyprus, Stephanou said the government, in cooperation with the Attorney General, will study in depth all the aspects of the judgment in Greek Cypriot Michael Tymvios` case.

    [03] HOUSE PRESIDENT ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

    President of the House of Representatives Marios Karoyan has reiterated the support of the House to the demand of the Armenian people for the recognition of the Armenian genocide of 1915.

    In an address, at an event organised by the Committee in Memory of the Armenian Genocide, to mark the 93rd anniversary of the genocide, Karoyan noted that ``tonight we recall the huge crime, we honour the victims of the Armenian genocide and we condemn once again the atrocious crime and the criminals.``

    Karoyan called on Turkey to recognise and admit its crime and to apologise to the Armenian people and humanity as a whole.
