  • [01] 5th EURO-MEDITERRANEAN MINISTERIAL CONFERENCE - RESULTS

    The 5th Euro-Mediterranean Ministerial Conference on Energy held Monday in Limassol, Cyprus, endorsed a comprehensive Priority Action Plan for the Euro-Mediterranean energy cooperation, running from 2008-2013.

    Speaking during a joint press conference he gave with EU Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs and the Portuguese Minister of Economy and Innovation Manuel Pinho, whose country is holding until the end of 2007 the six-month rotating EU Presidency, Cyprus Commerce, Industry and Tourism Minister Antonis Michaelides said that the absence of Turkey from this Conference contradicts the spirit of fraternization between the peoples.

    He said that the example of the Palestinian Authority and Israel could become a lesson for Turkey that through dialogue on such important issues can sometimes bridge the gap regarding political differences.
