The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

What can the peo­ple of the South say? Af­ter all, they are still wait­ing for the promised bet­ter days, not to men­tion the promised “new fron­tier” that Vieux Fort was promised to be­come by both ad­min­is­tra­tions. - Pi­cant

The Saint Lu­cia Gov­ern­ment will con­tinue sup­port­ing the ef­forts of the Cyprus Gov­ern­ment for the achieve­ment of a “just, vi­able and func­tional so­lu­tion of the Cyprus prob­lem,” Gover­nor MacDonald Dixon, Saint Lu­cia’s Deputy, stressed on Thurs­day.

Re­ceiv­ing the cre­den­tials of Vasilis Philip­pou, the new Cypriot High Com­mis­sioner sta­tioned in New York, Dixon thanked the Cypriot Gov­ern­ment for the schol­ar­ships it of­fered to the gov­ern­ment of Saint Lu­cia.

Ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial press re­lease, pre­sent­ing his cre­den­tials, Philip­pou in­formed Dixon about the cur­rent state of af­fairs re­gard­ing the Cyprus talks and pledged to work hard to en­hance bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, es­pe­cially in the fields of tourism, ed­u­ca­tion and mar­itime af­fairs.

In the frame­work of his visit, Philip­pou held a meet­ing with For­eign Min­is­ter Alva Ro­manus Bap­tiste and other gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials.
