Déclaration du vice-Premier ministre et ministre des Affaires étrangères suite à la présence du navire de recherche turc Barbaros dans la ZEE chypriote

MAE Hellénique,  lundi, 20 octobre 2014:

«Malheureusement, la Turquie n’a pas entendu la voix de la communauté internationale, elle n’a pas entendu la voix de l’ONU et de l’Union européenne, elle n’a pas entendu la voix de la légalité internationale.

Son navire, le Barbaros, se trouve dans la zone économique exclusive et le plateau continental chypriote et tentera d’effectuer des recherches qui manifestement constituent une violation flagrante du droit international de la mer, car dans cette région la délimitation du plateau continental et de la zone économique exclusive de la République de Chypre n’est pas contestée.

Statements of Deputy PM and FM Venizelos and the FM of the Republic of Cyprus, Ioannis Kasoulides, following their meeting (Athens, 13 October 2014)

Hellenic MFA, Monday, 13 October 2014:

E. VENIZELOS: It is a great pleasure to welcome to Athens, to the Foreign Ministry, my dear old friend and colleague Ioannis Kasoulides, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Cyprus.

With Mr. Kasoulides we had the opportunity for a one-on-one meeting, followed by a meeting of the delegations under our direction. Thus, in two different phases we discussed in detailed depth the situation that has taken shape in Cyprus following the Turkish initiative, in violation of international law, of the declaration, through a NAVTEX, of the carrying out of exploration in maritime zones of the Republic of Cyprus, in a region in which the Republic of Cyprus exercises its national sovereign rights; that is, in a region of the Cypriot exclusive economic zone and continental shelf.

Greek FM Accuses Turkey of Cyprus Negotiations Breakdown. Research ships escorted by two warships are beginning the exploration of mineral resources in the EEZ of Cyprus

Greece has accused Turkey of escalating tensions around Cyprus and undermining negotiations on settlement of the Cyprus issue, the Greek Foreign Ministry said in a Thursday statement.

"Unfortunately, at the center ... is Turkey’s refusal to see that the Republic of Cyprus is an independent and sovereign state, a member of the UN and the European Union, that exercises sovereignty and sovereign rights, in accordance with international law.

Cyprus an example of ills caused by non-enforcement of U.N. decisions: president Nicos Anastasiades (VIDEO ONU)

UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- The "unacceptable" situation that Cyprus finds itself in -- still divided after 40 years of numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions that call for its reunification -- is an example of the harm that can result from the non-enforcement of United Nations decisions, the president of the island nation told the U.N. General Assembly here Thursday.

Ten years since the signature of the Treaty of Athens

Ten years ago, on April 16, 2003, the Treaty of Accession to the European Union of 10 European countries – the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia – was signed in Athens. This historical event took place during the Greek Presidency of the Council of the European Union and is enshrined forever as one of the most important documents of the reunited Europe. Later, on May 1, 2004, all our countries became fully fledged members of the reunified European family comprising 25 member states at that time. It was the largest single expansion since the Paris Treaty of 1951, the forerunner of the EU, in terms of population, number of states and territory.
Moreover, it was the symbolic completion of the vital strategic goal of all the acceding member states to finally put an end to the post-World War II period by returning to the common space of freedom and stability, democracy and prosperity. The signature of the Treaty of Athens opened a new era for the acceding countries, for their citizens and ultimately for the whole of Europe.

“I thank you for your letter, expressing some thoughts on ways to solve a major problem which has been keeping Cyprus divided for forty years, a drama whose perpetuation in our times contravenes the core values of our civilization and fundamental provisions of international law.

The history of the problem is well known and has been much discussed. Responsibilities certainly exist. However, we must not remain forever prisoners of the past.

La posibilidad de que el Eurogrupo repita la vía chipriota asusta a los mercados......

1. Dijsselbloem deja abierta la opción de dejar caer a la banca en futuros rescates
2. El Ibex 35 se desploma un 2,27% arrastrado por la banca tras abrir la jornada en verde
3. La prima de riesgo española sube hasta superar los 360 puntos básicos y el euro cae

Los mercados han recibido el acuerdo entre Chipre y el Eurogrupo con una fugaz bienvenida y han llegado a cotizar en verde durante buena parte de la mañana pero han acabado el día con importantes caídas. La jornada empezó con cierto optimismo, pero las ganancias duraron poco y las primeras dudas aparecieron antes incluso de la pausa para comer.

Cyprus to face savage cuts and economic dictatorship....

By Jordan Shilton and Chris Marsden(wsws.org)
23 March 2013
Cyprus’ fate illustrates how the European Union imposes the dictatorship of the global speculators, banks and corporations on the working class. The EU yesterday continued to demand massive austerity in Cyprus to raise €6 billion ($7.8 billion) in return for a €10 billion bank bailout.
The island country has been the centre of an escalating financial crisis, with its parliament voting Wednesday to reject proposals to raise the necessary funds by taking money from anyone with deposits in Cypriot banks. 

A new vote on whether to impose a “haircut” on depositors was delayed until today. The EU and European Central Bank (ECB) dismissed proposals by Cypriot politicians—themselves wholly reactionary—to create a “solidarity fund” to raise the six billion demanded.
