    House President Yiannakis Omirou briefed on Tuesday the Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlăţean on the latest developments in the Cyprus economy.

    Omirou stressed that the promotion of austerity and fiscal consolidation measures could only be successful if included in a new model of economic governance, based on growth and employment.

    "As the state that holds the Presidency of the Council of the EU for the current term, we are obliged to restore the trust of the European citizens, through policies that safeguard and not harm the social coherence", he said.
