  • [01] CYPRUS AIRWAYS PILOS - STRIKE

    Cyprus Airways pilots are on strike for five hours on Saturday, from 10 am to 3 pm, to protest the violation of their collective agreement with the airline.

    The pilots trade union, PASIPI, is holding a General Assembly to discuss the next steps.

    CY spokesman Kyriacos Kyriacou has said the work stoppage affects 12 flights and about 2000 passengers, to and from six destinations - Paris, London, Manchester, Athens, Salonica and Zurich.

    He said the company has notified all passengers concerned about alternative arrangements relating to their flights and explained that all affected flights have been rescheduled either before or after the strike.

    PASIPI President Andreas Georgiou would not comment on any possible escalation of strike measures and said this is an issue of the trade union.

    He reiterated that for the past two years Cyprus Airways has been violating unilaterally the collective agreement, something the Ministry of Labor has also said, according to Georgiou.

    [02] USA - CYPRUS - ANTIQUITIES - MOU

    Cyprus and the USA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding renewing for another five years restrictions on the import of pro-classical and classical archaeological artifacts and Byzantine period ecclesiastical and ceremonial ethnological objects. For the first time, the Memorandum includes provisions on coins.

    Speaking at the ceremony, Nicholas Burns said Cyprus has a huge cultural heritage, which must be protected, adding that the US has undertaken to safeguard this heritage. He said many artifacts have been illegally imported to the US and other countries.

    Cyprus Ambassador to the US Andreas Kakouris thanked the US for renewing the Memorandum for a further five years, noting that the coins included in the renewed document cover the period from the end of the 6th century BC to 235 AD. He elaborated on Cyprus cultural and archaeological heritage and noted that the renewal of the Memorandum was yet another significant example of the cooperation between Cyprus and the US in many sectors, and reflected their common values and principles.

    Thirty three years after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus the need for finding a solution and the reunification of Cyprus is even more imperative, Greek Foreign Ministry has said, adding that the July 8 2006 agreement constitutes the basis for the a well-prepared recommencement of this effort.

    In a press release issued on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the Turkish invasion in 1974, the Greek FM said this day marks ``thirty three years of division and occupation of more than one third of the Republic Of Cyprus territory,`` adding that ``a wall, the last in Europe continues to divide the Cypriot people, depriving it of the potential to coexist peacefully in the European family.``

    According to the Greek FM, thirty three years since the invasion, the Republic of Cyprus, a member of the European Union ``is proceeding with confidence to constructing a better future for the inhabitants of the island,`` adding that ``the need to find a solution for the reunification of Cyprus is imperative - a just, viable and functional solution on the basis of UN Security Council decisions and the principles of the EU.``
