  • [04] SOPRANO - AWARD


    Russian President Dmitri Medvedev has noted that enhancing cooperation between Cyprus and Russia is a priority.

    In a message to President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias on the occasion of his 65th birthday, Medvedev says that ``in Russia they justly consider you a sincere friend of our country and highly appreciate your contribution over many years to the development of relations between Russia and Cyprus.``

    In his message, which was posted on the Kremlin`s official website, Medvedev says he expects their ``personal dialogue to contribute in the future as well to promoting a constructive agenda, both on a bilateral and international level,`` noting that he places great importance on the implementation of agreements reached in October 2010, which marked their talks in Cyprus.

    He also expresses certainty that the further dynamic development of this relationship ``responds to the fundamental interests of the people of Russia and Cyprus, and serves to establish regional and international stability.``


    Deputy Sales Director and Acting Spokesman for the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) Ioannis Tsouloftas said that on Tuesday 40 out of the 60 MW produced by generators from US company Energy International will be available.

    He also said that there was nothing to announce regarding the purchase of electricity from the northern Turkish occupied areas of the Republic, to cover the needs in power after the island`s main power station was rendered inoperable from the shockwave of an explosion of munitions, noting that the EAC was ready to proceed but was waiting for a political decision.

    In statements to CNA regarding the modular generators, Tsouloftas said that they were successfully tested on Monday night and that 40 MW would be available on Tuesday. He added that these generators had been provided by Energy International and had arrived from Oman, in the first shipment of generators of a total capacity of 60 MW.

    ``The first generators were of a capacity of 60 MW, they were sent to Dhekelia, the trial connection of 40 MW took place last night, and very soon the 60 MW will be available in Dhekelia. Regarding the others of a capacity of 35 MW and which have been installed at Moni, they are expected to become available next week,`` he said.


    The head of the Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus, Archbishop Chrysostomos II, will depart Wednesday for Constantinople (Istanbul) to attend a meeting convened by the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

    The meeting will also be attended by the Primates of the Patriarchates of Alexandria Theodoros, Antioch Ignatius and Jerusalem Theophilos.

    The meeting will discuss the unrest in the Middle East and its consequences on the people of the Middle East and particularly Orthodox and heterodox Christians. They will also discuss the convening of the Great Synod of the Orthodox Church.

    The Archbishop of Cyprus will be accompanied by the Bishop of Paphos Georgios and Deacon Kyprianos Kountouris. Archbishop Chrysostomos and his entourage are expected to return to the island on Saturday.
