Cyprus: visit of the Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for
the Protection of National Minorities

A delegation of the Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for
the Protection of National Minorities will visit Nicosia, from 12-15
October 2009 in the context of the monitoring of the implementation of
this convention in Cyprus.

This is the third visit of the Advisory Committee to Cyprus. The
Delegation will have meetings with the representatives of all relevant
ministries, public officials, the Ombudsman, as well as persons
belonging to national minorities. 

The Delegation includes Ms Ilze BRANDS-KEHRIS (First Vice-President of
the Advisory Committee and member elected in respect of Latvia), Ms
Iulia MOTOC (member of the Advisory Committee elected in respect of
Romania) and Mr Dalibor JILEK (member elected in respect of the Czech
Republic). They will be accompanied by Ms Artemiza-Tatiana CHISCA of 
the Secretariat on the Framework Convention for the Protection of
National Minorities.

Note: Cyprus submitted its third State Report under the Framework
Convention in April 2009. Following its visit, the Advisory Committee
will adopt its own report (called Opinion), which will be sent to the
Cypriot Government for comments. The Committee of Ministers of the
Council of Europe will then adopt conclusions and recommendations in
respect of Cyprus.
