    CNA - Maria Koniotou - CYPRUS/Nicosia 25/10/2016 14:11

    President of the Republic, Nicos Anastasiades, has said that the Republic of Cyprus remains sincerely committed in supporting bi-communal initiatives which support efforts on the negotiating table aimed at finding a comprehensive settlement that will end the unacceptable status quo and reunite the country, its people, the economy and institutions.

    Addressing the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation award-giving ceremony, held on Tuesday in Nicosia buffer zone, Anastasiades said that the significant benefits associated with Greek and Turkish Cypriots working together, will be greatly amplified once a settlement to the Cyprus problem is reached. Above all, it will fulfill the aspiration of our people to live in a modern European homeland under conditions of stability, security and safety, he noted.

    [02] No foreign troops or guarantees as part of solution, Greek President says

    CNA - Greece/ATHENS 25/10/2016 14:01

    President of Greece Prokopis Pavlopoulos has stressed that a solution should not include the presence of any foreign troops on the island or any form of guarantees as this would not be compatible with the acquis communautaire.

    He was speaking after having received French Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Marc Ayrault in Athens.

    Pavlopoulos said that he would like to share in the optimism over the possibility of a solution but also noted that "it constitutes common ground in Cyprus, Greece and the EU that the solution of the Cyprus problem will go through the bi-communal talks and must respect international law as a whole, in particular UN resolutions and of course the acquis communautaire.

    CNA - Athanasios Athanasiou - Belgium/Brussels 25/10/2016 14:30

    Cyprus had a significant increase in organic crops dedicated rural areas, by 48% in the last five years, according to Eurostat, but still it takes no more than the 3.7% (as % of total utilized agricultural area), one of the lowest in the EU. That area has seen an increase of 0.9 percentage point, from just 2.8% in 2010. In absolute numbers, Cyprus dedicated 3184 hectares in the production of organic crops in 2010 and 4699 hectares in 2015, an increase of 47.6%.

    Meanwhile, in the EU, 11 million hectares of certified area or area under conversion existed in 2015 and organic farming made up 6.2% of the European Union`s (EU) total utilized agricultural area (UAA).

    Since 2010, the area devoted to organic farming has grown by almost two million hectares. Similarly, an upward trend can be observed for the number of registered organic producers. At the end of 2015, ...

    [04] EP approves provision for EU to pay 85% of projects in Cyprus

    CNA - Athena Arsalidou - France/Strasbourg 25/10/2016 14:26

    The European Parliament approved on Tuesday a special provision whereby the EU would pay up to 85% of project costs in Cyprus until the current regional and social policy programming period ends in 2020.

    MEPs voted in favour of extending the period of eligibility for Cyprus for the increased EU co-financing rate of 85% until the closure of the 2014-2020 regional and social programmes.

    Cyprus has the status of a "more developed region" in the current EU cohesion (regional) policy and would normally receive 50% co-financing for projects under the European Regional Development Fund and European Social Fund programmes.
