The United Nations Security Council responded to a lawsuit filed by the Republic of Cyprus last week over Turkish threats over the siege of Famagusta.

According to credible sources quoted by the newspaper "Kathimerini", the Security Council will confirm Resolutions 550 and 789, which refer to Famagusta and characterize as unacceptable any attempts to settle any part of Varosia by people other than the residents and ask for transfer of this area to the administration of the United Nations.

The Security Council requested that in addition to the International Atomic Energy Agency's ongoing inspections in Iran, that it monitor Iran's compliance with "the steps required by the IAEA Board".
