  • [01] Interior Minister: Cyprus faces immigration problem

    Cyprus is facing a problem of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers, mainly due to its proximity to countries of emigration but also because of the continuing Turkish occupation, said Interior Minister Socrates Hasikos, addressing Wednesday a conference on " The demographic and immigration problem in Cyprus" .

    Cyprus, an EU member since 2004, has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. The opening of checkpoints between the north and the south on 2003 is considered to have caused mass movement of illegal immigrants from the occupied areas.

    The Minister said that the government's efforts are focused on fighting illegal immigration, implementation of legislation to impose exemplary punishments and deterrents to those who employ illegal immigrants, the strict application procedures for the entry of students from third countries and the development of international cooperation with countries of origin of illegal migrants.

    [02] More than 30 projects underway at Cyprus Institute, Dr Pittas tells CNA

    More than 30 research projects are underway at the Cyprus Institute, which promotes research in areas such as energy, environment, technology in archaeology, computation - based science and technology.

    In an interview with CNA, Chair of the Executive Committee of the Cyprus Institute (CyI) Dr Andreas Pittas said that the Institute has established partnerships with world-leading institutions for the development of each of its individual centres, such as with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of Illinois.

    Dr Pittas told the Cyprus News Agency that MIT's expertise in the field of natural gas is just one example on how the Institute's international network of partners can provide a series of advantages. The Institute operates under the aegis of the Cyprus Research and Educational Foundation (CREF), which is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprised of leading personalities of the international academic, political and business world.
