  • [01] Cyprus considers signing CoE Convention on combating violence against women

    The Republic of Cyprus is seriously considering becoming a signatory of the Council of Europe's Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence, Minister of Justice and Public Order Ionas Nicolaou has said.

    Nicolaou, who was addressing an event on Friday in Nicosia on violence in the family, said the government aims to speed up penal processes so that justice may be served more quickly and effectively.

    The Republic of Cyprus, Nicolaou pointed out, "is seriously considering becoming a signatory in the Convention, which covers the three aspects, prevention, combating and protection regarding all forms of violence against women".

    [02] US welcomes Anastasiades-Eroglu informal meeting

    The United States has welcomed the forthcoming informal meeting between Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu "as a step forward by the leaders to energize the Cyprus settlement process", encouraging both leaders "to take advantage of the current window of opportunity to find a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem."

    In a written response to CNA, invited to comment on the informal meeting the two leaders will have on Monday, November 25, a spokesman of the US Embassy in Nicosia said that "the United States welcomes this development as a step forward by the leaders to energize the Cyprus settlement process, and encourages both leaders to take advantage of the current window of opportunity to find a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem.

    " Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides announced on Thursday that Anastasiades and Eroglu will have an informal meeting. He said that Anastasiades took the initiative to invite Eroglu to an informal meeting with the aim to conclude on a joint statement that will pave the way for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    [03] Cyprus will continue implementing its energy plans, despite Turkish provocations, says Minister

    Minister of Defense Photis Photiou has said that the Republic of Cyprus will continue implementing its strategy in the energy sector, despite Turkey`s provocations, adding that "we will not relinquish sovereignty rights and this must be made clear".

    Asked whether Turkey has launched threats against the Republic of Cyprus following Friday`s official announcement regarding cooperation in the hydrocarbons sector between Cyprus and EMI - KOGAS, he said that Turkey continues to launch threats, as this is one of Ankara`s tactics.

    The Minister wondered how the Cyprus talks could resume, when Turkey continues to question Cyprus` sovereignty by launching threats.
