Nicosia, Apr 8 (CNA) - Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides said today that the government was making continuous efforts in the direction of the permanent and non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, so that the Security Council resolution on Cyprus would reflect the content of the UN chief's report and contain a more favourable wording for the Greek Cypriot side.

Asked if the government was aware of the draft resolution on Cyprus, Chrisostomides said ''the government has information at its disposal regarding the content of the resolution that is expected from the Security Council''.|

He said ''continuous efforts are being made in the direction of the permanent and non-permanent members of the Security Council, so that its resolution reflects the content of the Secretary General's report''.

Asked if the information on the resolution met the government's expectations, Chrisostomides said ''the information is being discussed in detail and the government's goal is for the Security Council resolution to determine on one hand the responsibilities regarding the course so far and on the other the continuous involvement of the Security Council and the Secretary General in the effort for a final settlement of the Cyprus problem''.

Invited to say what moves the government was making in view of the resolution, the Spokesman said contacts were being made so that ''the Security Council resolution will contain a more favourable wording regarding our side''.

He described these contacts as ''very useful'', adding that ''preventive policy is always very important''.
