  • [01] EU COMMISSIONER OIL SPILL LEBANON

    Cypriot EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection Marcos Kyprianou described the oil spill caused by the Israeli bombing of Lebanon as the biggest threat for Lebanon shores, perhaps even Syria.

    Speaking after a meeting with Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Fotis Fotiou, Kyprianou said they discussed the issue of the oil spill, noting that he dealt with it last week in Brussels and according to reports ``the oil spill is the biggest threat for the shores of Lebanon and perhaps Syria.``

    Kyprianou said the spill does not seem to be moving westerly, adding however that through satellites used by the EU, ``we are monitoring its movement and we have decided how to act in case the oil spill moves towards the west.``

    He said the relevant European organisation which is based in Malta has in its possession vessels that can handle such incidents and will be on alert if the oil spill moves towards open seas.
