    [04] Communications Minister - Cyprus as a maritime centre

    Nicosia, May 31 (CNA) - The harmonisation of Cyprus' legislation and administrative practices in the maritime sector with those of the European Union is well on its way and an action plan has been prepared and closely followed, Communications and Works Minister Averof Neofytou said today.

    Speaking at a panel discussion organised by the Cyprus Shipping Council, Neophytou also said the Cyprus maritime flag still faces image problems, even though the measures taken so far have brought results, and noted the need for better control on the ships.

    [05] Cyprus - Greece - Loizidou case

    Athens, May 31 (CNA) - Cyprus and Greece today underlined that all Council of Europe (CoE) member states have the legal obligation to implement the European Court of Human Rights rulings, otherwise the international organisation looses its credibility and shatters its principles.

    The positions of the two countries were underlined at a meeting between Cypriot and Greek officials in Athens to coordinate efforts so that the Court decision in the case of Greek Cypriot Titina Loizidou against Turkey is implemented.

    [06] British EuroMP - Cyprus question

    Nicosia, May 31 (CNA) - A political settlement in Cyprus is not a precondition for the Republic's accession to the European Union (EU), British Conservative European Parliament MP Tereza Villiers has said in an interview with the London Greek Radio.

    Villiers, who is expected to visit the island in late June, appeared optimistic that a breakthrough will be achieved in the new UN effort to reach a settlement in Cyprus, divided since Turkish troops occupied 37 per cent of the island's territory in 1974, and expressed the hope that the Turkish side will follow a constructive approach.
