  • [01] President: We will overcome economic problems

    President Demetris Christofias believes that the demands of modern society and educational reform will be met once the economic problems facing Cyprus are overcome, with patience and good planning.

    Speaking at the inauguration of a new gymnasium in southern coastal town of Larnaca in the presence of the Minister of Education and Culture George Demosthenous, President Christofias said that perhaps the most important thing is to shape the citizens` attitude towards gaining knowledge continuously based on the life-long learning principle.

    "We live in an era of knowledge and technological explosion," he said.

    He also said that modern man should be sensitive and accept diversity, respect religion, the beliefs and homeland of others as he requires others to do so for him.

    Addressing the Director of the School, the President assured her that "with patience and good planning we will overcome the economic problems standing before us."

    [02] German FM: Turkey should not freeze talks with EU

    Turkey should not freeze talks with the EU during Cyprus' EU Council rotating presidency, due to begin on July 1, German Minister of Foreign Affairs Guido Westerwelle has said.

    Westerwelle, who was addressing a university conference in Constantinople (Istanbul) on Tuesday, said that implementing the Ankara Protocol is part of a number of bold reforms Turkey should go ahead with. Europe should be fair to Turkey, he said, adding that it is not however possible for Europe to say beforehand whether Turkey will eventually accede or not and when this would happen.

    Turkey, he said, is justified in expecting that its accession progress should not be affected by internal developments in other countries. In this respect, he noted, the results of elections across Europe will enhance this principle.
