    The European Central Bank (ECB) will continue to cooperate with the Cypriot authorities for the successful implementation of the Memorandum Cyprus has signed with its international lenders and for the stability of the Cyprus banking system, it was emphasized at a meeting between President Nicos Anastasiades and ECB President Mario Draghi.

    A written statement by Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides issued on Wednesday said that at the meeting, held in Frankfurt, the Cypriot President raised specific issues related to the practical difficulties in the implementation of the conditions of the loan agreement and the Memorandum Cyprus has signed with its international lenders (ECB, IMF and EU Commission).

    The Spokesman said that "it was jointly ascertained by the two sides that the exit of the Bank of Cyprus from the resolution status, at the earliest possible, is vitally important, and it is in this direction that the efforts of all sides will be focused".

    "It was also emphasized that the ECB, on its part, will continue to cooperate with the Cypriot authorities for the successful implementation of the Memorandum and for the stability and prospects of the Cyprus banking system" he added.

    Members of the bi-communal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage together with Representatives of the European Commission and of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) visited Wednesday the Panagia Melandrina Church in the Turkish-occupied areas, where emergency interventions are currently being implemented.

    A press release issued by UNDP Partnership for the Future Programme (UNDP - PFF), notes that the project, funded by the European Union, through the UNDP PFF, consists of emergency measures aiming at avoiding further damages or partial collapses of the Church, which stands today in very precarious conditions.
