  • [01] Government committed to a Cyprus settlement, Interior Minister says

    The Cypriot government remains firmly and irrevocably committed to finding a solution to the Cyprus problem on the basis of international law, Minister of the Interior Socratis Hasikos said Friday, stressing that it is up to Turkey to prove that it indeed seeks a just and comprehensive settlement to the problem.

    Hasikos was the speaker in an event organized by the Committee of Occupied Municipalities to condemn the illegal unilateral declaration of independence of the pseudostate on November 15 1983. The UDI came nine years after the Turkish occupation of Cyprus that resulted in the occupation of 37 per cent of the island`s territory.

    "The sad anniversary of the UDI in the areas of the Republic under Turkish occupation and the preservation of this form until today manifests Turkey`s continued intransigent stance to comply with the UN Security Council resolutions 541 and 550," he said, describing the 15th of November 1983 as an unfortunate day for refugees and the Republic alike.

    [02] Deficit at 317,5 million in July - September 2013

    Deficit on the General Government accounts was at € 114,6 million in the quarter July - September 2013, compared with a deficit of € 31,4 million in the corresponding period of 2012, according to data released Friday by the Statistical Service of Cyprus, with the revenue to decline by 11.2% and expenditure by 6.7%.

    In the first nine months of 2013 (January-September), the deficit increased to € 317,5 million from 202.9 million in the first half of the year. According to the Memorandum of Understanding, the primary deficit for 2013 (excluding debt servicing costs) should be €395 million.

    Based on the preliminary data on the General Government accounts for the period July-September 2013 prepared in accordance with the European system, the total revenue amounted to € 1.681,1 million (11.2% decrease from the corresponding period of 2012 ) and total expenditure to € 1.795,7 million (6.7% decrease).

    [03] Clerides was a true patriot and war hero, says PSEKA President

    President of the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) Philip Christopher described the former President of the Republic of Cyprus Glafcos Clerides as "a true patriot and war hero".

    PSEKA extended on Friday their heartfelt sympathies to the family of the former President who passed away Friday, November 15 at the age of 94.

    "President Clerides was a true patriot and war hero," said President of PSEKA.
