  • [01] HOUSE PRESIDENT - CYPRUS TALKS

    House President Marios Garoyian stressed on Friday the lack of substantive progress in the process of direct negotiations which started in September 2008 with a view to solve the problem of Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.

    Garoyian was speaking during a meeting he had with Greek Minister for the Interior, Decentralization and Electronic Governance Giannis Ragousis, who is currently visiting Cyprus.

    An official press release issued here said that Garoyian also briefed Ragousis about the functions of the House and its competencies.

    On his part, Ragousis elaborated on the measures taken to address the economic crisis in Greece.

    [02] CYPRIOT AND GREEK INTERIOR MINISTERS - MEETING

    Cypriot Minister of the Interior Neoclis Sylikiotis met on Friday with Greek Minister of the Interior, Decentralization and Electronic Governance Giannis Ragousis with whom he discussed a broad spectrum of issues such as immigration, and local administration.

    Speaking to the press after the meeting, Ragousis said he invited his Cypriot counterpart to Greece, adding that there is big room for cooperation between the two countries with a view to serve the Greek and the Cypriot people in the best and most effective way.

    Facing its biggest fiscal crisis ever, Greece tries at the same time to come out of the crisis with ``deep reforms in the Greek state itself, the operation and the attitude of the Greek state and public administration``, he said.
