  • [01] CYPRUS SPOKESMAN - JULY 8 AGREEMENT

    Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas has said that the Greek Cypriot side has no indication that Turkey or the Turkish Cypriot side have any will to begin a dialogue to solve the Cyprus problem, noting that if Turkey believed that ``at this or any future stage there should be no movement, then things will be difficult.`` Palmas said if there was ``any political will on behalf of Turkey to create the conditions to move forward regarding the Cyprus problem, then there is a possibility to make progress through the 8 July 2006 agreement.``

    Replying to questions, Palmas said ``we have repeatedly proven our intention and will to create circumstances and conditions for progress regarding the July 8 agreement.`` ``From thereon, in order to create the conditions for improvement and progress regarding an agreement reached between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot side and the United Nations, the positive will of both sides is necessary,`` he pointed out.

    Asked about the July 8 agreement in relation to the forthcoming elections in Turkey, Palmas said that ``due to the fluid political situation in Turkey there is immobility regarding the July 8 agreement.`` ``We, the government, have said many times that the key is in Ankara and in Turkey,`` the Spokesman added.

    [02] CYPRUS - EGYPT - ROAD AGREEMENT

    Cyprus and Egypt have signed an agreement on International Road Transport of Passengers and Goods, to further cement relations between the two countries and open the doors to foreign trade for both countries. The agreement was signed by Cypriot Minister of Communications and Works Harris Thrassou and Egyptian Minister of Transport Mohamed Loutfy Mansour.

    Thrassou said the signing of this agreement on road transport will strengthen furthermore these relations and promote the cooperation between the two countries. I am convinced that this is only part of a new era of fruitful cooperation between Egypt and Cyprus. He also said that Cyprus and Egypt have always been excellent neighbours since ancient times ever since our region was the center of the civilization and during their discussions, they evaluated issues on Merchant Shipping, Road Transport and Ports and established a framework for developing our cooperation.

    Cyprus being a member of the European Union acts as a platform for nearby friendly nations such as Egypt to access the EU market in a more efficient and profitable manner, he concluded. Mansour said our purpose here is to further cement the relationship that we have between our two neighbouring and brotherly countries.
