  • [01] CNA - BTA - AGREEMENT

    The Cyprus News Agency (CNA) and the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) signed on Tuesday in Nicosia an agreement for cooperation providing for the exchange of the two agencies English Services, free of charge, and of their domestic photo coverage, via the Internet, also free of charge.

    According to the agreement, signed at CNA offices by CNA Chairman of the Board of Directors Costakis Constantinou and BTA Director General Maxim Minchev, each party recognizes the importance of promoting periodical direct contact between management and journalists of both sides, as well as professional training for journalists, both in Nicosia and Sofia, according to specific arrangements to be mutually decided in each case.

    Earlier the BTA delegation comprising Minchev and BTA Director of International Relations Zlatna Kostova met with Interior Minister Neoklis Sylikiotis, Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardes and Press and Information Office Director Yiannakis Solomou, escorted by Constantinou, members of the CNA Board of Directors and CNA Acting Director/Chief Editor George Penintaex.

    In statements after the meeting, Sylikiotis said this agreement of cooperation will pave new paths of cooperation between CNA and BTA and described the cooperation between the news agency as very important, due to the traditional good relations between Cyprus and Bulgaria and the fact that they are both EU members.


    The Republic of Cyprus has a complete and exclusive sovereignty over the entire island of Cyprus and alone has the right to designate an airport for the purposes of the Chicago Convention, said a letter by the British Department for Transport to the so-called Turkish Cypriot airlines.

    A spokesman of the Department confirmed that a letter was sent to the airline to give them a final answer to their application that the British government allows direct flights between the UK and the illegal airport at Tympou (Ertzian), in the areas of the Republic of Cyprus occupied since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.

    The reply given to the legal counselors of the Turkish Cypriot company on February 20 said the Republic of Cyprus has made no such designation in respect of the illegal airport.


    Mayor of Famagusta Alexis Galanos announced on Tuesday the beginning of a campaign titled "Give your town a voice" for the collection of signatures by Famagusta refugees, demanding that they be allowed to return to the fenced-off town.

    Galanos said that if the legitimate inhabitants return to Famagusta, the town could become a workshop of cooperation between the two communities and economic growth, which would be a bright example of what can be done in Cyprus.
