  • [01] Energy sector key for economic recovery and growth, President says

    The energy sector is key for achieving the government's goals of economic recovery and growth as well as for the creation of new jobs, Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has stressed.

    In an address, delivered by Minister of Communications and Works Tasos Mitsopoulos, at an official dinner of the 2nd Cyprus Energy Symposium, in Nicosia, President Anastasiades said that "indisputably, the recent discovery of the Aphrodite gas field in Block 12 in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Cyprus, estimated to hold 7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, creates new perspectives with regard to putting Cyprus on the European and global energy map".

    The new situation, as it is being shaped today, he stressed, "renders the energy sector as the key for the achievement of our goals for economic resurgence and growth as well as for the creation of new jobs".

    [02] PfP accession a strategic goal for Cyprus, says Defence Minister

    Cyprus' accession to the Partnership for Peace (PfP) is a strategic goal, Defence Minister Photis Photiou has said.

    In statements he made to the press after his first meeting with the Parliamentary Committee on Defence, Photiou noted that the road to PfP accession will be long and difficult but accession can be achieved through the right diplomatic moves.

    The government will initially follow this route, he explained, adding that when the time is right an application for accession will be submitted.
