    In New York with the ’60s in luggage

    With the proposal to return to the Constitution of 1960 in response to Tatar, Anastasiades will come to the informal trilateral meeting with the Ersin Tatar and Antonio Guterres.

    At the same time, he will repeat, as he has also said in the informal five-day conference in Geneva, that he accepts the appointment of a special adviser on the Cyprus issue, and reiterated it in the letter he sent to the UN Secretary-General on 30 August. Diplomatic sources said that Anastasiades will try to convince once again of the readiness to restart the process, always within the framework of the UN resolutions.

    It is recalled that Ersin Tatar has repeatedly proclaimed in recent days that he is going to New York with the well-known position of the two states, again making it a condition of recognizing separate sovereignty.

    It is against this claim that Anastasiades will submit his proposal. A position which he reiterated in an interview with ALPHA TV on saturday before his departure for New York.

    As he characteristically mentioned in his interview, the message he wants to convey with his proposal is that what the Turkish Cypriot side accuses the Greek Cypriot side of unwillingness to share power is answered through a return to the provisions of the Constitution of the ’60s.

    Which gives the right to participate in decision-making. At the same time, Nicos Anastasiades explained that further dialogue is needed on how this system works based on the new data.

    On the sidelines of the General Assembly, Anastasiades will have a series of contacts. Anastasiades arrived in New York yesterday, accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Christodoulides, the Government Spokesman Marios Pelekanos and officials and attended an event held at the residence of the Permanent Representative of South Cyprus to the UN Andreas Hadjichrysanthou, during which he honored the Executive Director of the American Jewish Committee, David Harris.

    Anastasiades awarded Mr. Harris the Order of the Grand Commander of the Order of Makarios III, which is one of the highest honorary distinctions awarded by South Cyprus, for the role that Mr. Harris plays in upgrading relations between eastern Mediterranean countries, in strengthening the strategic cooperation between Cyprus and Greece, Israel, as well as for its support to the struggle of South Cyprus to find a comprehensive and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.

    In the evening, Anastasiades attended a dinner with representatives of the leadership of the Federation of Cypriot Organizations of America(Greek Cypriots Only), whom he briefed on the developments on the Cyprus issue.

    Today Anastasiades will go to Ground Zero, where in a special ceremony he will lay a wreath at the memorial to the victims of the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

    He will then have a meeting with the Director General of UNESCO, Audrey Azulei, in which he will discuss, among others, issues related to the agenda of the 41st Session of the UNESCO General Conference to be held in Paris next November and issues related to the protection of cultural heritage, including the relevant Nicosia Convention which is a tool for the protection of cultural heritage and provides protection through criminalization. the acts of illegal excavations, thefts and others.

    After the press conference, Anastasiades will receive a delegation from the American-Jewish organization AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), with the members of which he will discuss the upgrading of the strategic relationship between Cyprus and Israel and will inform them about the developments in the efforts to resolve the Cyprus problem.
