  • [01] Finance Minister: Cyprus preparing for first assessment by Troika

    Cyprus' Finance Minister Haris Georgiades has said that the government is preparing intensively for the first assessment by Troika, on July 17, adding that it has been agreed with EU partners that the Bank's of Cyprus exit from the resolution regime as soon as possible is a top priority.

    Referring to the Eurogroup meeting and to the discussion on the progress Cyprus achieved in implementing the bailout programme, Georgiades said that he explained that the government is preparing and looking forward to this assessment.

    The main question is the banking sector, especially the issue of the Bank of Cyprus and "the need to exit the resolution regime without further delay," Georgiades said.

    [02] National Council discusses issue of top negotiator

    The issue of the top negotiator for the Greek-Cypriot side was brought up on Tuesday in a meeting of the National Council at the Presidential Palace under the presidency of President Nicos Anastasiades.

    President Anastasiades had said in the past that he plans to appoint a negotiator on behalf of the Greek Cypriot side during the UN negotiations on the Cyprus problem. In past negotiations, the Greek Cypriot side was represented by the President of the Republic.

    Asked by the press following the meeting, who is going to be appointed top negotiator, Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides said, "A specific name has been discussed".

    [03] Deputy Spokesman: Natural gas not linked to Cyprus issue

    Procedures to explore and extract natural gas in Cyprus` exclusive economic zone are proceeding as planned and are not linked to the Cyprus issue, Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said on Wednesday.

    He noted that "if and when the Cyprus problem is solved, then there will be different cooperation and different prospects for cooperation with all the players in the region."

    Asked about remarks by President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades in a Turkish newspaper regarding the benefits from the natural gas after a solution, and whether this linked the solution with the natural gas issue, Papadopoulos said, "on the contrary, it disconnects the solution of the Cyprus problem from the natural gas."

    [04] Australian Senate President supports UN resolutions on Cyprus

    Australian Senate President John Hogg has expressed Australia's full support to the implementation of the provisions of UN resolutions on Cyprus.

    Hogg who is currently visiting Cyprus heading a parliamentarian delegation from Australia, met with House President Yiannakis Omirou.

    According to an official press release, they discussed issues related to the economic crisis in Cyprus and the Cyprus problem.
