  • [01] PALMAS - TURKEY - HYDROCARBONS

    The Republic of Cyprus is exercising its sovereign rights, in the context of international law, regarding the exploration and exploitation of oil and natural gas reserves at sea and believes that any Turkish reaction or moves in this regard are not the concern of the Republic, Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said.

    He noted that so far Turkey has not violated the territorial waters of the Republic, which is closely monitoring the situation and will address itself to international organisations in case this happens.

    Palmas noted that ``the information we have is from Turkish media,`` adding that ``there is movement in some areas.``

    He pointed out that Cyprus was exercising its sovereign rights, within the framework of international law and the Convention on the Law of the Sea, and that if there was any violation of these rights by Turkey, the Republic would report Turkey to international organisations.

    Asked if the UN were aware of the situation, Palmas said they were.

    Replying to questions, Palmas noted that on August 16 the interested parties should submit their tenders for the right to explore and exploit oil reserves, if any are located.

    Anybody who submits a bid on 16 August will have the right to extract oil. In the second half of 2008 the second phase would begin, which provides for three-dimensional search, with more precise studies, he explained.

    Turkey, whose troops occupy Cyprus` northern part since they invaded in 1974, does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus.

    [02] OVERSEAS CYPRIOTS CONFERENCE

    The Cyprus issue and ways overseas Cypriots can contribute to Cyprus cause for justice will be the main agenda items of a week-long meeting of Cypriots overseas, to take place later this month.

    A total of 120 delegates from the Central Councils of the World Federation of Overseas Cypriots (POMAK) and the International Coordinating Committee-Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) will convene between 21-24 August in Nicosia, together with NEPOMAK (World Organisation for Young Cypriots) and the World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE).

    [03] CYPRUS DOCTORS OF THE WORLD KENYA

    A delegation of the Cyprus Branch of the Doctors of the World departs for Kenya on 11 August to offer medical assistance in dentistry, pediatric medicine and laboratory work.

    This is the fourth mission of the Cyprus Doctors of the World to Kenya, Dr. Matheos Demetriades, molecular geneticist told CNA Monday. Demetriades, who heads the mission, said they will set up a dental unit and other medical wards during their stay there.

    He also said that the delegation will receive, on site, two special machines as part of laboratory equipment for the Rirouta clinic, which operates thanks to donations from Cyprus.

    We hope to expand our activities to other regions in Kenya, Dr. Demetriades said, adding that the mission will remain in Rirouta where it advertise for local services to create the Pediatric wing at the outpatients unit of the clinic as well as a surgery room which will double as First Aid ward.

    [04] TOURISM INCREASE IN REVENUE
