  • Description

    The United Nations Security Council has voted to extend the time for peace keeping forces to remain in Cyprus. They will remain for another six months after 15 June. The vote was 14 to nil with one abstention. It was taken Wednesday (29 May). In a speech to the Council, the Cyprus Ambassador to the United Nations, Mr. Zenon Rossides expressed the hope that Cyprus could move towards a workable Government which would include the minority Turkish Cypriot community. The Turkish Ambassador, Mr. Osman Olcay said that it was a grave mistake to think the Turkish side ever accepted a unitary state as a framework for discussion. This film contains the vote with the President of the Council, Mr. Maina announcing the result and speech by the Ambassadors from Cyprus and Turkey. A transcript follows.
