Cyprus launches EU website :D

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has described the assumption of the EU Presidency by Cyprus, in the second half of 2012, as a very important event and an historic challenge.

In a message on the preliminary website of Cyprus’ Presidency of the Council of the EU, launched on Thursday, President Christofias underlines that assuming the EU Presidency in the second half of 2012 for the first time, “is for us, as a new EU member state, a very important event and an historic challenge“.

“One of our main aims as presiding country is to contribute our utmost to the EU efforts to act, through its various policies, as a force generating progress, peace, stability and prosperity on the international stage,” he says.

The preliminary website was launched at a press conference by Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou and the Head of Cyprus’ EU Presidency Secretariat Andreas Moleskis. As it was stated at the press conference, a few weeks before Cyprus assumes the Presidency (second half of 2012) the official website will be launched that will cover only Presidency issues.

enforce as much pressure on Turkey to remove its occupation troops from Cyprus/.

policies to be developed to ensure that despot nations such as Turkey is forced to accept ECHR findings immediately
policies to be developed that will ensure economic sanctions are placed on Turkey for its occupation and violation of human rights of not only Cypriot people but the Kurds as well and those of Armenia

that the President of Cyprus invite the leader of the TC community of Cyprus to join him in re-entering the political sphere as agreed in the Cyprus Republic Constitution as a political ally and a political equal,

From the Cyprus Mail in March this year:

PRESIDENT DEMETRIS Christofias yesterday said he would not seek a second term in office if there was no solution to the Cyprus problem by 2013, responding to critics who claim he is delaying in the talks to get re-elected.

Speaking yesterday during a televised press conference on his two years in office, Christofias said the accusation that he was stalling in the talks so hardliner Dervis Eroglu could become the next Turkish Cypriot leader was “truly an affront and an insult”. He added that ending the Turkish occupation and reunifying the island’s people was “a vision and a lifetime goal” for him.

“Let me underline very clearly: if by the conclusion of my term of office a solution to the Cyprus problem has not been achieved, I will not seek a second term. The present term will be my first and last.

“I have made this very clear before and after the elections. A few people, though, insist that, supposedly, I follow a tactics policy with a view to the 2013 elections. I view 2013 only in light of the solution to the Cyprus problem. I have said it before and I will say it again, it is the purpose of my life,” he said.


As most here seem to think he has NO HOPE of being re-elected, I hope they have a photograph of a different 'face' ready to put on that website!

Why is Gasbag obsessed with re-elections?

Perhaps it's time you begged your way into another dinner party so that you can eavesdrop on another GC conversation by which to continue your incessant, vapid attempts at ridiculing your host country, and refuge.

And play right into the hands of those lobbying for the abolition of the 6 month rotating presidency giving among their reasons for the abolition:

Too often, incoming presidencies cannot resist adding their pet priorities to the CFSP work programme.

The habit of each new presidency to champion its own concerns reinforces the impression that EU involvement is episodic.

The problem of credibility, particularly when a small country with limited diplomatic clout holds the presidency. Non-Europeans simply do not take the EU very seriously when this is the case. This may be insufferable prejudice on their part, but it is a political reality that the EU must take seriously.

Another prejudice of Gasbag's revealed.

Cyprus might be small territorially but it is a pivotal economic, political and geographic Giant for the EU. Just like it was for the fucking British Empire -- which still refuses to let go!

... and by the fornicating reference, I mean what they did to the natives! :wink:

the fucking British Empire


Not a nice way to talk about your country you CHOOSE to live in!

Where presumably you send your kid(s) to school.

For all I know married someone hailing from there (or did both you and your other half BOTH decide the UK was a better choice than Cyprus - just like all those other Cypriots have?)

You are just a Brit with a holiday home in Cyprus.

You often seem to want all the Brits OUT OF CYPRUS.

Would you say it was fair, if that should ever come to pass, that all the CYPRIOTS should leave the UK too?

There are far more Cypriots living in the UK than there are Brits living in Cyprus.

A far greater percentage of the Cypriot population considered the UK to be a better place to live than Brits considered Cyprus to be.

You have nothing better to say about the UK than you do about Turkey. You say the politics of the UK are of no interest to you.

So - it wouldn't surprise me if you went to live in Turkey one day! What's the difference? They both fucked Cyprus according to you.

Do you post on UK discussion forums telling them what you think of their country? I doubt it, you don't take enough time off of here to do so!
