  • [01] LEADERS - DIRECT TALKS - MEETING

    President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will meet Wednesday afternoon at 1530, in the context of UN-led intensified direct talks to solve the Cyprus problem.

    The meeting takes place at the residence of the UN Secretary General`s Special Representative in Cyprus Liza Buttenheim, in the UN-protected area in Nicosia.

    During their previous meeting last Monday, the leaders of the two communities exchanged views on the issue of aliens, asylum, citizenship and immigration.

    According to a statement by UN Secretary General`s Special Representative in Cyprus Liza Buttenheim after Monday`s meeting, the leaders advisors were to meet Wednesday morning at 0930 to continue the discussions of this issue.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. The leaders of the two communities are currently engaged in UN-led talks, with an aim to reunify the island under a federal roof.

    [02] PRESIDENT TURKEY - EEZ

    President of the Republic Demetris Christofias on Tuesday called on the international community to respond to any possible unlawful act by Turkey regarding Cyprus right to start oil and gas exploration in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

    In a statement to the press following a ministerial meeting on the issue, President Christofias said that Cyprus Republic will press ahead on gas drilling in Block 12 in its EEZ, in the framework of the agreement signed with Houston-based Noble Energy International.

    Cyprus has signed a production-sharing contract with Noble. The company has a concession to explore for hydrocarbons in an offshore field in Cyprus EEZ, known as Block 12.

    We have decided that Noble Energy will proceed in the forthcoming period with the exploratory drilling in order to find out the quantity and the quality of hydrocarbons, he said.
