    The crisis in the Middle East and the situation in Syria in particular were the focus of an informal meeting of Foreign Ministers of Mediterranean countries, which took place in Limassol, on the south coast, at the initiative of the Cypriot Foreign Minister Marcos Kyprianou.

    The meeting was attended by the Foreign Ministers of Greece, Malta, Israel and the Deputy Foreign Minister of Bulgaria.

    In statements to the press on the sidelines of the meeting, Kyprianou said that there is no formal agenda and participants exchange views and brief each other on various aspects of regional developments, without keeping minutes.

    He noted that the objective is to have a clear picture of the situation in the region and not to arrive at any concrete decisions.


    Tackling aerophobia (fear of flying) is of great importance especially for Cyprus, which as an island is connected with the rest of the world by air transportation, Minister of Communications and Works Erato Kozakou - Markoulli said addressing a seminar on tackling aerophobia.

    The seminar, which takes place this weekend in Nicosia, is organised by Cyprus Airways and the Pancyprian Pilots Union (PASYPI). Markoulli said that 20% of people worldwide are aerophobic, adding that the Cypriot state has always been supporting initiatives as this seminar.

    She said that despite the world economic crisis, air transport records an upward trend, noting that in 2010 around 10 million flights took place in the European area.

    The aim of the seminar is to provide the knowledge and psychological support to persons who are afraid of planes, so that by the end of the two-day meeting they will be able to travel without any fear and enjoy the flight experience.

    Speakers at the seminar include distinguished professionals such as pilots and other skilled staff members of CY, specialist psychologists and others. The second day of the seminar includes a practical workshop where participants will visit Larnaka Airport, will enter a CY plane which will taxi at the airport runway.
