  • [01] Foreign Minister: The times demand responsibility

    The times Cypriot Hellenism is going through are so difficult that they demand responsibility, unity and collective action," Minister of Foreign Affairs Ioannis Kasoulides said on Wednesday, noting that anyone who thought the financial crisis would lead to the acceptance of any solution to the Cyprus problem would be disappointed.

    In a speech at the presentation of a book by Leonidas Leonidou on the crimes of the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus and the national cleansing in the Turkish occupied areas, Kasoulides said "in no case will Cyprus fall victim of blackmail concerning the handling of the Cyprus problem."

    "Let us make sure that the future generations will experience the goods of peace and never the unbearable pain that our generation experienced," he said, noting that "the Cyprus problem, which is a problem of invasion and occupation, was and is a top national priority of the political leadership."

    [02] Communications Ministry: Business as usual for Cyprus shipping industry

    The Department and the Registrar of Cyprus ships have been and will continue to operate as usual, an announcement by the Ministry of Communications and Works says.

    Following the Eurogroup decision on Cyprus, and the "speculative information which is currently circulating" the Ministry notes in the announcement that "the situation which has emerged has no direct or indirect effect on the Cyprus tonnage tax scheme".

    "Unlike the other tonnage tax schemes, the Cyprus scheme is one of the schemes for which the European Commission has determined that it complies with the European Union State Aid policy" it is added, noting that "the Cyprus tonnage tax scheme is ‘locked' for ten years".
