  • [01] EU OFFICIAL CYPRUS TURKEY

    Director of the EU Enlargement Directorate Michael Leigh has referred the issue of Turkey`s provocative behaviour against the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus concerning explorations for oil deposits to the authority for the peaceful settlement of border disputes, which provides inter alia a form of international arbitration.

    Speaking at a press conference in London on Friday, Leigh was asked how it was possible for the Republic of Cyprus to accept the opening of the chapter on energy in Turkey`s EU accession negotiations in the light of Turkey`s provocations regarding explorations in Cyprus` exclusive economic zone.

    Leigh noted that in the context of accession negotiations, it was clear than any differences in determining borders should be settled between the sides directly involved, adding that, if they fail to do so, they should appeal to a form of international arbitration, without resolving to violence. He added that as long as Turkey did not fulfill its obligations emanating from the Ankara Protocol to include Cyprus, by opening its ports and airports to Cypriot ships and airplanes, the eight chapters that have been inactivated would not open.

    Leigh also noted that accession negotiations were carried out between the candidate country and the EU members, and thus each chapter needed the approval of all member states. He also welcomed the direct negotiations between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus for a comprehensive settlement, and expressed hope that they would lead to a positive outcome.

    [02] CYPRUS CERN - APPLICATION

    Minister of Education and Culture Andreas Demetriou has submitted an application for the accession of the Republic of Cyprus to the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).

    Demetriou, who paid an official visit to Switzerland, visited CERN in Geneva, accompanied by Chairman of the Cyprus Institute professor Costas Papanicholas, and submitted the application on behalf of the Republic of Cyprus.

    The application is part of the dossier for the full participation of Cyprus in CERN, which will enable the Republic to become a full member of CERN in the largest physics scientific laboratory in the world.
