    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas leaves for Malta on Thursday to take part in the third informal meeting of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of EU Mediterranean countries.

    Participating in the meeting will be France, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Malta, Italy, Slovenia and Spain.

    Among the issues which will be discussed are the Mediterranean dimension of the European neighbourhood policy, the Middle East peace process, illegal immigration, the future of Europe and the EUs energy policy.


    The Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA) and Mediterranean Nautilus Ltd, signed an agreement for the construction of a new ring from Cyprus to Sicily, with the name Minerva System.

    The Minerva System will introduce a ring to Cyprus by adding a Branching Unit and a new segment to the MedNautilus main system in addition to the upgrading of the existing cable to Cyprus.

    It will use a dedicated express fibre pair along the ring with 10 Gb/s DWDM wavelengths and will connect Cyprus and Italy on a dedicated direct link bypassing Turkey, Greece and Israel. From Sicily to Europe the Minerva will be connected to the MedNautilus Pan European network, a CYTA statement said.

    Minerva will be ready for service during the 3rd quarter of 2007 with the first phase ready for service during the second quarter of 2007.
