The United Nations General-Assembly on Wednesday (9 November) passed a resolution for the U.N. Security?
The United Nations General-Assembly on Wednesday (9 November) passed a resolution for the U.N. Security Council to keep the Cyprus question under constant review. It also resolved to adopt 'all practical means' to have its past resolutions of the strife-torn Mediterranean island implemented. The resolution was passed with 116 votes in favour and six against. The General Assembly also wants the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities representatives to resume their two-year-old talks, which broke down last spring. In the Assembly, Greece's UN Ambassador Constantin Stavropoulos gave wind-up speech before the vote was taken.
