  • [01] Greek, Cypriot DMs discuss cooperation

    The Greek and Cypriot defence ministers, Evangelos Meimarakis and Christodoulos Pashiardis, met in Athens on Tuesday for talks within the framework of European defence cooperation and security talks, with the former also expressing Athens' unreserved support towards the Republic of Cyprus for the achievement of a just and viable solution to the Cyprus issue.

    Meimarakis added that nothing has changed in terms of the two countries' joint defence doctrine, while the Cypriot DM added that the doctrine is in force as long as the threat by Turkey and the island's occupation continues.

    Asked about Turkish military exercises and threats to prevent exploration for oil in the sea regions around the island, Pashiardes said the specific exercises have nothing to do with exploration conducted by the Republic of Cyprus.

    Referring to military cooperation agreement between Cyprus and France, Pashiardis cited volition by both sides to reinforce the pact.

    Finally, in reply to a press question regarding NATO's planned anti-ballistic missile system, Meimarakis first noted that the contentious issue will first be discussed at a NATO-Russia summit, while adding that the proposed system is defensive and clearly a deterrent, ?thus, it finds us in agreement under the conditions we have set.?
