  • [01] GREECE CYPRUS - TURKEY

    Vice President of the Greek Government Theodoros Pangalos has assured that Greece will support the Republic of Cyprus and that any attack against Cyprus would be considered an attack against Greece.

    Addressing the Hellenic Parliament and sending a message to Turkey regarding its threats concerning explorations in Cyprus` exclusive economic zone, Pangalos said ``Cyprus is an independent member of the UN and has the right to independently determine its interests, alone or in cooperation with other countries.``

    [02] PRESIDENT TURKISH THREATS

    President Demetris Christofias called for vigilance and readiness by the National Guard vis-a-vis Turkish arrogance and the threats by Ankara, aiming to intimidate Cyprus in order to abandon exploitation of hydrocarbon reserves in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

    Speaking at the Presidential Palace this morning, during the ceremony of affirmation of the new Deputy Chief of the National Guard, Major General Andreas Petrides, the President said that Petrides assumes his duties during a very difficult time, while the Turkish occupation of a significant part of Cyprus still continues.

    Turkish arrogance and the treats that are being made, in an effort to intimidate the Republic of Cyprus, aiming at dissuading the country from exploiting its EEZ, call for vigilance and readiness, President Christofias said.

    [03] CYPRUS ISSUE TALKS

    President Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu completed Thursday the discussion of the property issue at the current phase of the intensified UN-led direct talks to solve the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking after the meeting UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer, said that they had a pretty long meeting focusing on exclusively the issue of property and working on the task of building core convergences on a series of issues in the property chapter.

    He added that the leaders will move on, on Monday, to discuss the question of citizenship, immigration and aliens, and they will also discuss that issue on Wednesday. There will then be a further meeting on Friday, where they will be discussing the issue of the economy.

    Asked about the reason President Christofias stayed a little bit longer with him after the meeting, Downer said that he wanted to have a talk with the President separately about another matter.
