  • [01] STEPHANOU - DIRECT TRADE - EU DECISIONS

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said that the EU regulation providing for direct trade between the Republics northern Turkish occupied areas and the EU is wrong and is in conflict with EU decisions.

    Stephanou said that the government of Cyprus makes efforts to address the issue with political and legal actions.

    Invited to comment on the fact that the procedure on the direct trade regulation begins today in the European Parliament and asked to say whether the so called elections in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus will have any impact on the process, he said that the Republic of Cyprus has a clear position on the issue.

    He added that the content and the philosophy of the direct trade regulation are wrong and are in conflict with the EU decisions.

    Stephanou noted that the Republic of Cyprus has prepared its policy on the issue and will stay committed on that to deal the issue in a joint effort with the political parties, the Cypriot Members of the European Parliament, as well as Cyprus ally countries in the EU, especially Greece.
