    [12] Restoration projects make EU visible to people, says Verheugen

    Restoration projects make EU visible to people, says Verheugen

    Nicosia, Jun 17 (CNA) EU Enlargement Commissioner Gunter Verheugen said projects such as the restoration of the Omeriye area in the government controlled areas of the divided capital are extremely valuable because they make the contribution of the European Union visible to the people.

    Speaking during a visit to the Ottoman Baths, the square and the Omeriye Mosque, Verheugen said it was very important for him to visit the project which will help to make Nicosia a much more attractive place to live in and a place to attract more people to visit it.

    The cost of the restoration and rehabilitation of monuments in the old part of Nicosia is estimated at 600 thousand Cyprus pounds (One Cyprus pound trades at around 2 US dollars) and is part of the pre-accession funds of the EU that are given to Cyprus through the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) of the United Nations Development Programme.

    The project, which is expected to be completed by 15 September, includes restoration of the Omeriye Mosque and the Ottoman Baths. I think this is a project that is extremely valuable because it makes the contribution of the European Union visible to the people and it will help to make Nicosia a much more attractive place to live in and a place to attract more people to visit it, Verheugen said.
