  • [01] VALINAKIS TURKEY CYPRUS

    Greek Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Yiannis Valinakis has called on Turkey to immediately implement the additional protocol of the Ankara Agreement.

    Speaking during a meeting of Ambassadors in the Greek capital, Valinakis said this obligation was outside any logical bargaining and efforts for compensation and accused Turkey of trying ``to associate and gain compensation from this obligation with the issue of lifting the so called isolation of the Turkish Cypriots.``

    He also reminded that the European Union has made it clear in its September 2005 statement that the non-implementation by Turkey of the protocol will have repercussions on the negotiating procedure and Turkey`s stance will be evaluated by the EU in Autumn.

    [02] CYPRIOT MINISTER OIL SLICK

    Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Fotis Fotiou and scientists from the Oceanographic Centre, describe as ``unlikely`` for the time being the oil spill caused by the Israeli bombing of Lebanon to reach Cyprus` shores, noting that the Cypriot state services are on alert.

    Fotiou told reporters, after being informed by the Oceanography Centre of the University of Cyprus, and verified by satellite images and other photographic material, Cyprus is not in any danger, noting that he does not undermine the ecological disaster of the Mediterranean, and for this reason he asked Commissioner for the Environment Stavros Demas to undertake an initiative for an action plan to handle the situation.

    He said that the amount of oil estimated to have spilled into the sea is around 20 to 30 thousand tons, of which 79.9% has reached the Lebanese shore, 20% has evaporated and around 1% remains in the sea area very close to the Lebanese coastline and does not threaten Cyprus due to south-west winds which are pushing the currents in a north direction.
