  • [01] EU COMMISSIONER - CYPRUS - LEBANON

    The fundamental principle of solidarity and apportioning responsibilities among EU member states will be implemented in the event Cyprus receives from Lebanon a large number of foreign nationals from third countries, European Commissioner for Environment Stavros Demas, responsible for Civil Protection said.

    He was speaking after a meeting at Larnaca Port with Cypriot and EU officials to examine the situation following the influx of foreign nationals from war-ravaged Lebanon.

    The European Commissioner said that the main solution to the problem that has ensued with the mass exodus of people from Lebanon would be to immediately stop the hostilities and create conditions of safety in the country.

    For this to happen, he said, all those who have the ability to affect the situation, should exert pressure for an immediate ceasefire.

    Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of the Interior Andreas Christou, speaking on behalf of the government, said Cyprus has proved that it can handle crises in the region, adding however that its capabilities are limited.
