The Cyprus government is organising a series of events to mark the 30th anniversary since Makarios death.

President Papoulias, who arrived Saturday in Cyprus to participate in events commemorating the anniversary of the death of the late Archbishop Makarios III, the Republics first elected president after independence in 1960, had this afternoon a private meeting with Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos.

  American Hellenic Institute | The Cyprus Problem:
President Clerides has reaffirmed that representatives of the Turkish Cypriot community are welcome to participate in these negotiations as members of a unitary delegation of the Republic of Cyprus.
Given that Cyprus will accede to the EU as a single state, it is greatly to be preferred that the Cyprus problem is solved so that the whole of Cyprus can enjoy the undisputed political, security, social and economic benefits accruing from EU membership.
Although this proposal was cancelled by the Cyprus Government on December 29, 1998, the belligerent saber-rattling instigated by the Turkish military underlines the fact that Cyprus remains an international flashpoint.

President Denktaþ has declared that he was under no pressure to initiate the present face-to-face talks, though critics inevitably claim that Ankara was anxious not to be seen to be supporting a leader commonly held to be 'intransigent'.
The UN had envisaged in Resolution 1251 (29 June 1999) a 'State of Cyprus with a single sovereignty, an international personality and a single citizenship', but President Denktaþ objected to this formula, stating (8 January 2002) that 'these are characteristics of a unitary state that do not conform to the idea of a new partnership'.
