  • [01] TURKEY - SHIPS BARROT

    Turkeys refusal to open its ports to ships flying the Cypriot flag will be discussed during the 10th Maritime Cyprus Conference that will be held in the coastal town of Limassol from 23 - 26 September, in the presence of Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Transport Jacques Barrot.

    Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Communications and Works and Chairman of the Conferences Organizing Committee, Makis Constantinides, has said that unless Turkey lifts the embargo it imposed on ships flying the Cypriot flag, the EU Turkey negotiating chapter on transport will not open.

    Constantinides, who was speaking during a press conference today on Maritime Cyprus 2007, said that the government is considering various countermeasures to be granted to ship owners to offset the losses resulting from Turkeys embargo, imposed since 1987.

    This issue will be raised at the Maritime Cyprus 2007 Conference in the presence of Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Transport Jacques Barrot. The Turkish embargo is the only negative aspect in the field of Cypriot shipping, he said.

    [02] COMMISSION CYPRUS UN TALKS

    Head of the European Commission Representation in Cyprus Themis Themistocleous said that the Commission remains fully committed to supporting a resumption of UN-led talks for a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem as soon as possible.

    Commenting on Turkish media reports that EU representatives, which were not named, had said that EU member states and institutions may recognise the puppet regime in the Turkish occupied areas if the Cyprus problem was not solved within the EU context, Themistocleous pointed out that ``there is absolutely no foundation whatsoever for the alleged statement by an EU official.``
