Christofias Say Cyprus Would Share Gas, No Answer on UNSC Abstentions

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 26 -- After Demetrio Christofias' last UN General Assembly speech as president of Cyprus, he told the press that he had met with and thanked the five permanent members of the UN Security Council.

 What about the Elected Ten members of the UNSC, Inner City Press asked him, particularly the two of them which abstained on the Cyprus resolution in July, Azerbaijan and Pakistan?

  Inner City Press also asked about the stated intention of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus leader Dervis Eroglu, in his meeting with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this Saturday, to present a plan for gas exploration and hydrocarbon exploitation?

  Christofias never answered the Security Council question about Pakistan and Azerbaijan. But on gas and oil, he said he made it clear he was willing to share this natural bounty, but Eroglu wouldn't negotiate.

Inner City Press asked Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky what Ban thinks of the issue. Nesirky said to wait until Saturday, but until then to look at the statements of Ban's envoy Alexander Downer.

  Eroglu will be at the event this evening at the Roger Smith Hotel. Watch this site.
