  • [01] CYPRUS EU ENVIRONMENT CAMPAIGN

    Rainfall in Cyprus is decreasing, the mean temperature is rising while the CO2 emissions per head remain high, said Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Minister Timis Efthimiou during a press conference on the EU awareness raising campaign over climate changes.

    It is the first such campaign in the EU with the slogan You control climate change.

    Head of the EU`s Representation in Cyprus Themis Themistocleous said that the 20th century has been the warmest century to date while the 90s decade was the warmest in the last one thousand years, and this was due to the increased concentration of `greenhouse gases` that are released by human activities.

    He said the campaign, which was launched in Nicosia today, aims to inform EU citizens on the problem and show that they too can contribute to handling it.

    Themistocleous said that 16% of the households are directly responsible for the EUs greenhouse gas emissions while private vehicles are responsible for around half of the emissions related to transport.

    With some changes in our daily lives, we can conserve energy and cut down gas emissions significantly, he added.

    [02] CYPRUS DECLARATION AIDS

    Cyprus permanent Representative to the UN Andreas Mavroyiannis declared the governments readiness to work with all forces and the international community to fully implement the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS.

    Addressing the special United Nations General Assembly meeting to assess the progress made in combating AIDS since it issued its Declaration of Commitment to a comprehensive battle against the pandemic five years ago, Mavroyiannis said Cyprus unites its voice with the international community and renews its pledge to cooperate on an international, regional and national level, even the political level, to make real the aims of the declaration.

    In his speech, Mavroyiannis said five years after the declaration, the efforts of the international community to curb the pandemic are at a critical stage.

    He said that although many things have been achieved, the epidemic continues to win over the international effort and stressed that 2005 marked an increased number in infections and deaths from AIDS.

    [03] BULGARIAN DEPUTY PM - VISIT - CYPRUS

    Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivailo Georgiev Kalfin arrived in Cyprus on June 5 for a two-day official visit, at the invitation of Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Iacovou.

    Kalfin and Iacovou will be meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and talks will be held between delegations of the two countries.

    During his stay, Kalfin will be received by President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos and House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias.

    The Bulgarian official`s agenda includes meetings with Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism George Lillikas and Minister of Labour and Social Insurance Christos Taliadoros. After the meeting with Taliadoros, an agreement on social insurance between the two countries will be signed.
