Video message by the President of the Republic on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

I am greatly honoured to be a part of this high-level Forum on the occasion of the first annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. I would have much preferred to be able to participate in the Forum and be among you. Regrettably, prior commitments, in particular related to the ongoing negotiations for a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem, have prevented me from traveling to New York. I wish to thank the organizers of this event, including the Royal Academy of Science International Trust and its Executive Director, Her Royal Highness, Princess Dr. Nisreen El-Hashemite, and recognize their immense contribution to promoting the participation of women and girls in science. Despite positive developments, progress toward achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls has been slow and uneven. As regards education, there has certainly been great progress since the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the twenty-third special session of the General Assembly on the enrolment of girls and women at all levels of education. - 11.02.2016

Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the satellite launch conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus condemns the satellite launching, via using ballistic missile technology, which was conducted on 7 February 2016 by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). This action, as well as the recent nuclear test, dated 6 January 2016, violate the international obligations of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as determined by the relevant resolutions of the Security Council of the United Nations and constitute a threat to international peace and security. The Republic of Cyprus, in line with the EU High Representative’s Statements issued on 6 January and 7 February 2016, urges the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to engage in a constructive dialogue with the international community, in particular in the framework of the Six-Party Talks, aiming at the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. -09.02.2016

Draft transcript of the statements of the UNSG’s Special Adviser on Cyprus after his meeting with the President of the Republic

Draft transcript of the statements of the UNSG’s Special Adviser on Cyprus after his meeting with the President of the RepublicI had a good conversation with Mr Anastasiades. As you know the leaders’ meeting that was originally scheduled for yesterday has been postponed to this Saturday. What we did yesterday instead was to have a negotiators meeting and there will be another one on Wednesday. Let me highlight a couple of things. Last week, the two negotiators were jointly in Brussels. That was a historic visit. It has never happened before in this format, they were received at the highest possible level, including by President Junker and they had very solid, good discussions together, presenting the views not of either side but of the two sides jointly towards the European Commission and they were reassured, as I have been, of the full commitment of the European Union and the European Commission to the work that is going on here, not only as a political statement, but on several technical issues, preparations for the full implementation of acquis in the northern part of Cyprus, as one example, with also several other aspects as the European dimension is integral to the entire settlement we need the full support of the EU, who works together with me, with the UN, with the IMF and the World Bank on a number of technical issues that are now of high importance. We are also emphasizing in this phase several lines for work, which are not necessarily divergent in nature, but which has to be done, in order to make solid preparations for a phase, where the final political agreement can be made. So that some of these technical work is behind us rather than ahead of us at that time. -09.02.2016
