  • [01] EU - CYPRUS - EXPLOSION

    The European Commission will help Cyprus cope in this difficult moment, the Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, Kristalina Georgieva, has confirmed referring to the massive explosions occurred at the Naval Base Evaggelos Florakis, in Zygi, near Limassol on Monday.

    According to an announcement, issued by the Commission, Cyprus has requested assistance through the European Civil Protection Mechanism after the devastating explosion at Zygi naval base. The authorities of Cyprus have asked for electricity generators because Vassilikos power station the largest on the island suffered extensive damage, severely limiting energy production.

    The Cypriot authorities have also asked for assistance in assessing the damage to the power station and its restoration. To that end the European Union will deploy an assessment and coordination team of experts. A liaison officer from the Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) of the European Commission will arrive in Cyprus tomorrow to prepare the arrival of the team.

    ``I want to express my deep sympathy for all those who have been affected by this tragic event. The European Commission will help Cyprus cope in this difficult moment,`` said Kristalina Georgieva, Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response.
