  • [01] EU - LIMNITIS

    President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso has welcomed the agreement reached on Friday between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus to open a crossing point in Limnitis. ``This is very good news and an excellent response to the call I made yesterday to both leaders to agree on confidence building measures and move forward in the negotiations to reunify the country,`` Barroso said.

    He added that ``this agreement shows that where there is a will there is a way`` and that ``it is a promising step in the overall settlement process, which will soon enter its decisive phase.`` ``The Commission fully supports the efforts of the two leaders, under the aegis of the United Nations, to reach a comprehensive settlement and to reunify the island. Indeed I believe that there is a unique chance this year to bring an end to this long-running conflict on European soil and this chance must be taken,`` he said.

    Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn welcomed the agreement as a ``further important confidence building measure that will benefit the two communities`` in Cyprus. ``This will also make the daily life of many Cypriots easier and will help to build trust between the two communities. The Commission stands ready to financially contribute to the works,`` he added.
