  • [01] President: Turkish positions obstruct efforts for a settlement

    President Nicos Anastasiades has said that the positions of Turkey, which occupies part of Cyprus for 40 years now, obstruct efforts for a political settlement, and expressed hope that 2014 will be an inflection point for the island's economic recovery and the modernization of the state.

    In statements to the press, at the Epiphany Day Celebrations in Zygi fishing shelter, at the south coast of Cyprus between Limassol and Larnaca, Anastasiades said he wished that justice, values and principles, as well as rational thinking will prevail among the nations and their leaders, especially those nations that carry the burden of creating prospects for peace."

    "I am particularly referring to Turkey, which for 40 years now occupies our homeland and due to its positions hinders a peaceful settlement that will allow Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots to co-exist and be able to create together and live in a modern European state," Anastasiades noted.

    [02] No comment from UN and Turkish Cypriots on rejection of President's proposal

    "We will not comment on negotiations," was the response of UNFICYP spokesman Michel Bonnardeaux, when asked to comment on the rejection of the proposal by the Turkish Cypriot side.

    The office of the Turkish Cypriot negotiator Osman Ertug declined to comment on the matter.

    The lecture on "The true story about the geopolitical role of Cyprus: David or Goliath? will be presented by professor Kevin Featherstone.

    [04] UN envoy returns to Cyprus in January for renewed effort

    Alexander Downer, UN Secretary General's Special Advisor on Cyprus, arrives on the island on January 12, in order to continue the efforts for an agreement between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities on a joint declaration for the resumption of direct talks.
