  • [01] Belgium supports efforts for renewed negotiations for Cyprus issue

    Belgium very strongly supports the preparation process for renewed negotiations under the UN auspices, with the ultimate aim of establishing a peaceful, stable, efficient and prosperous bi-zonal and bi-communal federation, new Ambassador of the Kingdom of Belgium, Alphonse Creusen, said on Monday.

    According to an official press release, Creusen outlined this position at a formal ceremony at the Presidential Palace, where he presented his credentials to the President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades.

    Belgium and Cyprus have a longstanding tradition of strong and trusted bilateral relations, he said, adding that he will contribute to the consolidation and further deepening of this warm relationship in the political, economic, social and cultural fields.

    [02] Ireland supports renewed impetus for Cyprus solution

    Ireland will continue to support the renewed impetus in the negotiating process for a Cyprus settlement and to encourage progress towards the achievement of a bi-zonal bi-communal federal state, Ireland`s new Ambassador in Nicosia Nicholas Twist said on Monday, presenting his credentials to President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades.

    Receiving the credentials, President Anastasiades said the aim was a fair, viable and mutually acceptable settlement, which would serve the legitimate interests and be to the benefit of the Cypriot people, as a whole, and not for any third country, pointing out that the negotiations must be properly and thoroughly prepared in order to ensure that the objectives are shared and the chosen procedure will bear fruit.

    Presenting his credentials, Twist referred to the close and friendly relations between Cyprus and Ireland, especially in the EU framework, noting that the Irish Government was particularly proud of the role played by the Irish members of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) almost continuously since 1964.

    [03] Estonia hopes talks for Cyprus solution will progress soon

    Estonia hopes that the negotiations for a solution will progress soon with a view to achieving a fair, comprehensive and viable settlement, new Ambassador of the Republic of Estonia in Nicosia Margus Rava said on Monday, presenting his credentials to President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades.

    Replying, President Anastasiades said the primal goal was the re-launching of negotiations under UN auspices that will be properly and thoroughly prepared and unequivocally conducted on the basis of the UN resolutions providing for a bizonal, bicommunal federation, adding that these objectives must be jointly and clearly shared in order for the negotiating process to bear fruit.

    Presenting his credentials, Rava referred to bilateral relations and economic cooperation, noting that both countries have suffered from serious macroeconomic imbalances, though at different times and different circumstances.

    [04] President: The Greek Cypriot side has submitted constructive proposals

    President Nicos Anastasiades said on Sunday the Greek Cypriot side has submitted constructive proposals with regard to the efforts to solve the Cyprus issue and the representatives of the UNSG could use them to achieve a joint statement which will clear up issues of principle before resuming the dialogue.

    Replying to questions on the sidelines of an event at the Archbishopric, President Anastasiades said that he does not wish to comment on the actions and stance of the UNSG's Special Adviser to Cyprus. He said he will have the chance to talk about all this during Alexander Downer's visit to Cyprus. "There is a lot that needs to be clarified once and for all", the President underlined.

    Asked when he will meet with the Special Adviser, the Cyprus President said that a meeting has been scheduled for November 6. He underlined that this was not going to be a joint meeting between Downer and the leaders of the two communities.
