  • [02] EPP-ED - MEETING


    Leda Koursoumba was sworn in as Cyprus first Commissioner for the Protection of Childrens Rights, at a special ceremony, at the Presidential Palace, in the presence of President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos.

    In his speech at the ceremony, President Papadopoulos assured that the government would do its utmost to ensure the protection of childrens rights and support the Commissioners work.

    In her speech, Koursoumba said this was an historic day for all the children in Cyprus since, for the first time, they will have their own institution to protect their rights.

    I aim to meet as many children as possible, to listen to them and promote their views where the children themselves cannot be heard, she added.

    The Euro-Mediterranean Policy and its perspectives is going to be the main focus of the meeting of the Bureau of the EPP-ED Group in the European Parliament, which will take place in Nicosia on February 7 and 8, with the participation of 65 leading European politicians.

    According to an EPP-ED press release, the Cyprus issue, the role of the UN and the EU as key players to promote the Cyprus settlement will be another item of discussion, particularly in view of the forthcoming presidential elections in Cyprus.

    The debate will be divided into four panels, namely ``The Future of the EU-Mediterranean Policy: Which Options``, ``The Role of the United Nations in Cyprus``, ``The EU: a Key Player to Promote the Cyprus Settlement`` and ``The EU: a Key Player to Promote a Secure and Lasting Peace in the Eastern Mediterranean``.

    In a panel introduced by Joseph Daul, Chairman of the EPP-ED Group in the European Parliament, parliamentarians will meet with representatives of the countries of the area such as Youssef Amrani, Moroccan Director-General of Foreign Affairs, and Iskandar Ghattas, Deputy of the People`s Assembly of Egypt, as well as Amine Gemayel, former President of Lebanon.

    They will have an extensive exchange of views on various issues, including the proposal for the creation of a Mediterranean Union launched by France`s President Sarkozy as well as the idea of a European Commonwealth and the reforming of the Barcelona Process.
