FIFAs Infantino Plotting for Morocco 2026 Disqualification

Rabat- In the same way that Joseph Blatter, the previous FIFA president, practically gave away the 2010 World Cup to South Africa, FIFA’s current president, Gianni Infantino, is attempting to similarly influence the outcome of the 2026 World Cup in favor of United 2026.Infantino has created one obstacle after another to counter the momentum Morocco has been building in the last few months. He started by sending a letter to FIFA federations, asking members to remain neutral in their selection of the 2026 World Cup host. Despite his ostensible neutrality, Infantino was acting strategically, urging the African football federations to wait on their announcements of support for Morocco’s bid. Infantino further demonstrated his United loyalties when he barred Morocco from presenting its bid to the African Confederation Congress, while simultaneously allowing the United 2026 leaders to present their credentials to the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA). Having arrived in Casablanca on February 2 to attend the 40th Ordinary General Assembly of Confederation of African Football (CAF), Infantino stated, “I ask you to do everything possible to make the process as healthy as possible. It is about our credibility.”Infantino’s remarks, however, did not please CAF’s President Ahmad Ahmad. In response to Infantino’s call, Ahmad said, “We live in an era of democracy. You are free to make your decision.” The CAF president, who has been expressing his full support for Morocco’s bid from the beginning, added, “I have my position, the executive committee supports me in my position, but it is up to you to decide.”It’s no secret that the FIFA president wants to give United 2026 the bid, in order to thank the Americans for removing former FIFA President Joseph Blatter from office. Infantino also owes US Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati for encouraging federations to support the current president during the election process.That is to say, Infantino has a large debt owed to the Americans. He knows that without Gulati’s help, he would never have won the FIFA presidency, as Jordan’s Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein was the clear favorite to win.Despite Infantino’s efforts to disqualify the Moroccan bid, more and more countries have started to voice their support for Morocco. South Africa and Kenya are the latest countries to pledge support for the Moroccan bid.To prevent Morocco from reaching the final vote on June 13, Infantino devised a five-man evaluation task force, handpicked by the FIFA president himself. Currently evaluating the Moroccan bid, the task force will submit each country’s score based on five major criteria. Widespread speculation has worried that the task force will score Morocco’s bid poorly, without considering future infrastructural development planned across the next eight years. Furthermore, new voting option to “abstain” has been added to the ballot, allowing FIFA members to refrain from voting due to politics, when they should be making a choice instead.Morocco published by FRMF in response, in which the North African country’s bid committee leader expressed his concerns about the fairness and transparency of the procedure. Expressing concern alone will not make Infantino rescind his plan, and Morocco will need to do more than simply express its worries and surprise if it wants to win the privilege of hosting the World Cup. Unless some major changes take place, Morocco will be virtually out of the running before the vote even begins. To generate a real response, Morocco could convince the 54 African soccer federations to threaten to boycott the 2026 World Cup, should Morocco be unfairly disadvantaged by the last-minute task force addendum.As it stands, Morocco’s dream to host the World Cup is perhaps wishful thinking, considering that FIFA’s current president holds all the real power, just like biased Blatter before him. We can only hope the collective federation response can generate real accountability in the football world’s governing body. read more

UN meeting looks at ways to rid world of harmful pollutants

PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, have been used extensively in electrical equipment such as transformers and large capacitors in power lines and in additives in paint, carbonless copy paper and plastics. They are one of 12 highly toxic chemicals targeted for elimination by the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants that entered into force last month. UNEP Executive Director Klaus Toepfer said the financial and technical challenges of eliminating PCBs from the planet will require a “vigorous” public-private partnership. “While international donors and national governments will set priorities and invest tens of millions of dollars, commercial firms have the expertise and technologies to perform much of the actual clean-up work,” he said. Many hundreds of thousands of tons of PCBs have been commercially manufactured for some 75 years. Although production is now banned under the Stockholm treaty, PCBs continue to pose a risk to human health and the environment because of the wide array of PCB-containing electrical equipment still in service. Tons of wastes containing or contaminated by PCBs are also being held at temporary storage sites, particularly in developing countries, according to UNEP. In addition, large quantities of PCBs have been discharged into soils, rivers and lakes over the years. Further releases continue to result due to accidents, the repair and decommissioning of equipment, the demolition of buildings and the continued existence of imperfectly sealed landfills and waste drums, the agency said. The Convention, which entered into force on 17 May, gives governments until 2025 to phase out “in-place equipment” containing PCBs, as long as the equipment is maintained in a way that prevents leaks. It also grants another three years to ensure the environmentally sound management of PCB-contaminated wastes. read more

Top UN officials urge Libyan parties to endorse proposals on new unity

A statement issued yesterday by the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, The UN chief welcomed today’s proposal of nominees for the Presidency Council of the Libyan Government of National Accord.“After months of turmoil and uncertainty, the Secretary-General urges Libyan leaders not to squander this opportunity to put the country back on the path to building a state that reflects the spirit and ambitions of the 2011 revolution,” the statement continued. “Now is the time for the parties to the political dialogue to endorse this proposal and sign the Agreement without delay.”The Spokesperson’s statement also noted that the Secretary-General remains committed to supporting the Libyan people through his Special Representative Bernardino León and the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).”Speaking Thursday at a press conference in Skhirat, Morocco, where the latest round of the political dialogue has been under way, Mr. León said that “finally the moment has come in which we can propose a national unity government.”Mr. León said he would like Libyans to see the proposal as “an opportunity for their country but also an opportunity for so many people in the region, in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, countries where they cannot even afford the luxury of what we are doing here today.”He read out the names proposed for the government, which included Fayez Sarraj for the position of Prime Minister, current a Member of Parliament at the House of Representatives from Tripoli. read more

Praveen still asking how the life of his vibrant young wife ebbed

first_img“DESPITE VALIANT EFFORTS, the life of this vibrant young woman ebbed away.”It was at this point in his summary of evidence that Dr Ciarán McLoughlin’s voice started to crack and his head bowed lower. The death of Savita Halappanavar has touched the lives of all who have come into contact with it – staff at Galway University where she was treated for seven days before she died, friends who spoke of her love of dance and her joy at being pregnant, ordinary Irish residents who read about the tragedy over the past five months and an emotional and compassionate coroner.But the utter turmoil brought on her family is etched on the face of Praveen Halappanavar. His lawyer described his client’s eyes as large, deep and intelligent but added that they carried an unbearable sadness.Disguised with sunglasses for the last day of the inquest – heartbreakingly coinciding with the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary – Mr Halappanavar’s face remained sombre as he entered and left Galway Coroner’s Court.As a verdict of medical misadventure was read out by the foreman of the jury, he kept his head bowed. Instead of going home to a place made beautiful with young love, as his lawyer noted earlier, he was now headed for a cold and lonely house.Speaking to reporters after the proceedings closed, the devoted husband said he still had a responsibility to Savita and her family to pursue the truth as he believes he still does not know how and why his wife died at Galway University Hospital on 28 October.The inquest returned a verdict of medical misadventure relating to the management of her care. The cause of death was septic shock, E.coli in the bloodstream and a miscarriage at 17 weeks.The 11-person jury and coroner heard from a number of witnesses that if a termination had been provided earlier, Savita could still be alive today. But it was also noted that this was a moot point as the law would not have permitted it.For Mr Halappanavar though, it is not a question of pro-life or anti-abortion, it is about how Savita was treated while she was miscarrying their baby.Eugene Gleeson, SC for Mr Halappanavar, noted that Savita had no input into her own care, making a parallel between her situation and that of a child, minor or person with severe disability.Solicitor Gerard O’Donnell described Savita’s care as a “severe and serious” mismanagement, that she was denied proper medical treatment, her constitutional right to life and basic human rights.“Medicine is all about preventing the natural history of the disease and improving [the] patient’s life and health,” was a memorable statement from Mr Halappanavar, not least because his voice was raised slightly higher than its usual quiet tones. The phrase was later echoed by a family friend.As he moves forward in his pursuit of the truth, he is both anxious and determined to find out if someone is accountable for his wife’s death. “That’s what I want to know,” he said, adding that the family wants someone to take ownership of their daughter’s death.A man preparedLegal teams for Galway University Hospital, Consultant Dr Katherine Astbury and Praveen Halappanavar all offered their thanks to Galway coroner Dr Ciarán McLoughlin for how he conducted the eight days of hearings.He heard from 36 witnesses, including hospital staff, experts and the deceased’s family and friends.A man who had started his prep work last November, he was praised for his fairness, patience and thoroughness.On closing proceedings, he moved toward the widower to convey his sympathies once more. “You will always be watched over by the shadow of your beloved Savita,” he had said earlier during his verdict reading.The widower says he remains optimistic about his goal to find the truth for Savita and her family. Asked about further legal action, he said he will “sit back and consider” but it was definitely not something ruled out by his legal team.But for now he goes home to the cold and lonely house mentioned by his lawyer. However, he leaves with the support of “some of the best friends” he could ask for. “I never thought I could come this far without the support of the guys,” he says as he leaves, a phrase betraying his age; a widower much, much too young.Praveen Halappanavar: ‘Savita’s treatment was horrendous, barbaric and inhumane’Savita inquest: Jury returns verdict of medical misadventurelast_img read more

President Higgins to make history as he visits FARC guerilla decommissioning site

Higgins arrives to the government palace in Lima, Peru, last week. Image: Martin Mejia/PA PRESIDENT MICHAEL D HIGGINS is to become the first foreign head of state to visit a fully-demobilised FARC camp.President Higgins, as part of his tour of South America, will attend a camp where the FARC fighters, who had links to the IRA, disarmed.Under the terms of the Colombia peace accord approved at the end of November 2016, all of the fighters must be fully demobilised and disarmed, before long term inquiries into the actions of the guerillas and Colombian governments can begin.Over 90% of FARC fighters have now given up arms and are in ‘rural zones of concentration’, where the disarmament process will take place.In April 2002, the US House of Representatives Committee on International Relations found that at least 15 IRA members had been travelling in and out of Colombia since 1998.It added that the IRA had received at least $2 million in funding from FARC drug operations.This followed the arrest of two IRA men and a Sinn Féin representative in Colombia in August 2001. The Colombia Three were charged with training FARC-EP members in bomb-making. They would eventually be found guilty of travelling on false passports, but not guilty of training FARC members.That decision was reversed after an appeal by the Attorney General of Colombia and they were sentenced to 17-year terms. The men vanished while on bail and returned to Ireland.Christian Aid Ireland urged the international community to continue supporting the Colombia peace process.Thomas Mortensen, Christian Aid’s Colombia country manager, who will meet President Higgins tomorrow, said: “We urge that the international community and Ireland continue to support the peace process politically and financially into the future, when it is no longer the focus of global attention. Such international engagement will be critical for ending the 53-year conflict that has torn 8 million lives apart.“We also call for an immediate end to the killing of human rights defenders in Colombia. The murders of brave people who stand up for justice, represents a major risk to the peace process.”With reporting by Paul HosfordRead: Violence at French protest over alleged police truncheon rape >Read: You’ll now be able to access your Netflix account from every country in the EU > Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Facebook  le réseau social fête ses six ans

first_imgFacebook : le réseau social fête ses six ansFacebook fête ses six ans aujourd’hui. Marc Zuckerberg, son créateur, célèbre surtout le succès triomphant du premier réseau social mondial.Il y a six ans, jour pour jour, un jeune étudiant d’Harvard a eu l’idée de créer un réseau social, à travers lequel ses amis pourraient échanger des données personnelles. Aujourd’hui, Facebook est devenu le premier réseau social au monde, comptant plus de 350 millions de membres. Il faut savoir qu’après Google, Facebook est le deuxième site le plus visité sur la toile. Son ascension tient du fait qu’il se démarque de ses concurrents : “Avoir en temps réel l’actualité de ses amis” est la clé du succès, explique Marc Zuckerberg. Cependant, malgré un positionnement et une image au sommet de la liste, l’entreprise gagne peu d’argent. Ce qui peut sembler étrange étant donné les 175 millions de personnes connectées chaque jour au site. En France, d’après un sondage mené par Métro, il y aurait 15 millions d’inscrits, dont 80% des 12-25 ans. Néanmoins, Copainsdavant reste dans l’Hexagone le premier réseau social, comptant pour inscrits 50% des internautes français. Twitter, de son côté, n’a séduit que 5% des internautes qui, apparemment, “ne sauraient pas l’utiliser”.Le 4 février 2010 à 16:10 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Staffing limits frustrate parks

first_imgThe Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Department is brainstorming ideas on crafting a more comprehensive volunteer program that might include allowing groups to “adopt a park,” and provide opportunities ranging from one-time events to long-term positions for skilled retirees.In a department snapshot provided to the Vancouver City Council Monday, Parks and Recreation Director Pete Mayer noted that his department sustained $670,000 in cuts in 2009 alone — and as the city looks to trim about $10 million from its 2011 general fund pot, he’s expecting further reductions.Still, he said, the city can’t expect to solve its parks problem by relying on volunteers alone. The department needs a balanced work force of skilled full-time workers, volunteers, inmate crews and contracts with private companies, Mayer said.While the department cut maintenance costs for neighborhood parks by 15 percent last year, it cost $3,093 per acre to maintain a neighborhood park. Larger community parks cost $3,717 an acre to maintain in 2009.“We’re engaging on how we can pursue a more aggressive volunteer program while respecting our labor unions,” he said.Parks Planning and Development Manager Jane Tesner Kleiner said she hopes to unveil a reworked program in 2011, but that some changes will begin soon.last_img read more

Sunday Update Crews Work To Halt Swan Lake Fire Spreading Towards Cooper

first_imgAlong the Sterling Highway watch for construction zones, and smoke on the roadway. Dip-netting season is now underway significantly increasing traffic. Jonathan Ashford with the Incident Command Team: “Be prepared that we may have delays, and that we may have smoke on the  roadways. So, build that into your schedule and be prepared that there are plenty of other folks on the roadways.”  Crews are utilizing existing trail and natural features establishing control lines to mitigate eastward fire spread. Billy Mack with Grangeville Hand Crew Type 2IA: “We are opening up an old fuel bed and creating a 20-foot fuel break on the right hand side, and a 10 foot break on the left side out on Bean Creek Trail.” Working side by side, the crews’ main responsibilities are to construct “firelines” – which look a lot like trails – around wildfires to contain and control them by removing fuel that wildfires need to spread. To do this, hand crews use tools like Pulaskis, shovels, and chainsaws to clear flammable materials and scrape or dig to mineral soil. Along the East Fork Moose River, crews are continuing mop-up to increase perimeter security.  Sites to the north and northwest have firefighting personnel and structure protection efforts in place. A Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) has expanded to include the western portion of the Chugach National Forest and still includes the Sterling Highway corridor. Firefighters continue to patrol the Sterling Highway.  Alaska State troopers and US Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Officers are monitoring for visibility impacts due to smoke and fog on Sterling and Seward Highways.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Swan Lake Fire is estimated 100,517 acres with roughly 425 on staff and remains at 25% containment. Crews are working hard on creating contingency lines that are being constructed to halt fire spread towards Cooper Landing and other values. In short grasses and other types of light fuels, a 12 to 36 inch wide fireline should halt the advance of the fire. Grangeville Hand Crew, and Kootenai Crew have established spike camps in the Cooper Landing area and are currently working on Bean Creek Trail.

West Bengal to host next IT sector trade union

first_imgRepresentational ImageWest Bengal might soon become the fourth state in the country after Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu with an IT sector trade union.The Kolkata Forum for Information Technology Employees on Saturday said it had applied for the trade union registration in Information Technology, Information Technology Enabled Services, Business Process Outsourcing and Knowledge Process Outsourcing industries. The forum is part of the national platform – Forum for IT Employees, which was established in 2014.The forum has an elected president, secretary and treasurer apart from 180 employees who have registered as members. “We plan to enrol 5,000 members,” said forum’s president Santanu Bhattacharya.He further added that the plan to register the trade union was “triggered and accelerated” by unfair labour practices which the employees could not resist in their personal capacity.The forum’s general secretary, Rajashri Dawn, stated that despite having various heads for cost-cutting most IT companies choose labour is the only means of reducing operating costs.However, even without having a formal registration the members had tried to guide various employees in the process of filing disputes at the Labour Commission and later in their legal fights.last_img read more

first_imgImplementationWe have rolled out the cloud-based service at 11 of our 18 facilities. Six of those facilities routinely send and receive files using the service, with the other five are moving in that direction.We have also arranged to use cloud-based image sharing with 25 of the hospital partners with which we regularly exchange imaging files. Convincing other organizations to change their practices and workflows is obviously a more delicate issue than commanding it in your own operation. Even with a technology as universally advantageous as cloud-based file exchanges, it can be a challenge to get other institutions to make the necessary adjustments in their routines.We’ve found that it helps to first demonstrate the benefits of the system to someone at a partner facility whom we know is likely to be receptive. If they like what they see, our hope is that they will champion it to the decision makers and other critical parties in their business.Given the obvious pluses of cloud service, we expect to continue enrolling our referring facilities in this project until cloud-based medical information exchange is the standard file transfer method in our network. Hundreds of facilities nationwide now use this technology. It is no longer experimental. We were ahead of the curve in adopting the service, and will continue to be a leader in championing it. As a leading provider of maternal-fetal, newborn and pediatric subspecialty physician services, Pediatrix Medical Group needed to streamline the transfer of images and reports between its facilities around the country. Seeking a faster, more reliable method of exchanging files than on CD, the group adopted a cloud-based medical information exchange. When medical specialists offer their opinion on a referred patient case, it’s essential to have previous diagnostic information at hand. Even more critical is the speedy transfer of diagnostic files in a pediatric emergency, where a doctor having the information can mean the difference between life and death for a struggling newborn. The Pediatrix Medical Group is a network of subspecialists and advanced practitioners that spans 34 states and Puerto Rico, so every day we receive transfer patients from across the country.

Then we would have to start the sharing process again from square one, wasting more time. This was addressed in a survey published in the January 2011 issue of the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR). FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Other Uses for Cloud-Based Medical Information ExchangeAs we continue to deploy the service for our original purpose, we have also found it useful in other ways. Sometimes we will receive a transfer patient’s imaging study that is of poor quality. Because of the speed and reliability of the cloud-based service, we can request re-imaging of the patient and receive the file within minutes after the exam.  That scenario, an obvious clinical benefit, would be impossible if we were restricted to exchanging files on CDs or DVDs.We are planning some intriguing new uses for cloud-based medical information exchange, including:Real-time consultations with multiple specialists in various locations, all viewing the same files on their individual computers or mobile devices, andClinician education with multiple physicians viewing the same files.To accomplish these goals efficiently, the files will need to be viewed with a zero-download viewer — that is, a viewer that can be accessed with through the browser, without the user needing to download an application. eMix has developed such a viewer in the beta testing phase.Cloud-based image sharing is transforming clinical care at Pediatrix Medical Group. But this is only partly due to the large scale of our operation. More than most, this technology is suitable for medical facilities of all sizes. In fact, smaller institutions including individual physician offices have far greater reasons to use technology that doesn’t require new infrastructure or hardware, which a cloud-based service like eMix does not. Downloadable content over the Internet is transforming businesses from publishing to music to movie rentals. For similar reasons, I believe we are about to transform file exchanges in healthcare.

Related Content Like others in the industry, we had long relied on burning imaging files to VHS, and then digitally to CDs or DVDs and sending them by ground or air. In the fast changing world of telemedicine, this most common means of exchanging imaging files eventually became inadequate to the task. Even when executed efficiently, the shipping process is slow and can affect timely diagnosis. We also faced circumstances where courier service wasn’t even an option. For example, one of our regularly referring institutions is a hospital located in the mountains of Colorado, where snow sometimes makes roads impassible for couriers.

Large imaging files can be sent by the service at full diagnostic resolution. This is crucial because the echocardiogram files we receive can be up to one gigabyte in size.The service has not only eliminated geographic concerns such as the one we faced in Colorado, but it alleviated our concerns over compliance and privacy. Quite literally, files can be sent between any Internet-connected IT system throughout the world. Speed is another major advantage — we are able access files sent in minutes rather than days. The transactions are as reliable and straightforward to execute as e-mail but if for any reason an error occurs, they are also auditable.  Further, image sharing services need to be cost-effective and simple to install without breaching IT firewalls and protocols at zero cost. These services also need to eliminate the need to use CDs/DVDs and the courier/shipping service, which saves about $25 to $40 for each mailing.

Check out these 9 confessions of an airport baggage handler 7) You get to the destination airport and the taxi driver actually knows the wayGetting a taxi in an unfamilar city is not always an easy ride. Often the driver doesn’t know the way, they’ve never heard of SatNav and they’ve never heard of the place you want to go. This isn’t an issue for you though – as soon as you say the name of your hotel, your driver already has his foot down and he’s on his way. 8) You get a hotel upgradeThe one potential problem of arriving early at a hotel is your room not being ready on time. Not an issue, the staff at the check-in desk seem to have taken a shine to you and announce that you are being upgraded…to a suite. Sea views, a walk-in wardrobe, a fully stocked mini-bar and a jacuzzi bath. Find the best hotel deals with the Skyscanner hotels app9) You meet the love of your life on holidaySingle holidaymakers – this one’s for you. You take a short break to relax and recuperate and one evening, you turn round and the most beautiful person you’ve ever seen walks into the bar and makes a b-line for you. The pair of you immediately hit it off and a holiday romance blossoms. For ladies on the look out for love, check out our 10 holiday romance survival tips for girls10) You car is parked in the car park nearest the terminalYou arrive back home after the best holiday ever and the only thing to think about is the drive home.

From secrets on how to jump the check-in queue to how to get an upgrade.…10 things you should never do at the airportAirports can be stressful, alright. While there’s a lot of advice out there for what you should do at an airport, forget there are lots of things that you should never, ever do – from gate lurking to chatting up staff. It’s finally time for your holiday and expectations are sky high. You’ve been counting down the days, your suitcase is by the door and you’re ready for the off. Here’s a guide to the 10 best things that could happen on your next trip. Fingers crossed…1) There’s no queue at the bag drop deskThere were clear roads on the way to the airport, you’ve remembered everything and you arrive at the airport early – this must be too good to be true? Usually there’s a horrendous queue of people waiting to drop their bags off, but what’s this? No queues and you walk straight to the desk – amazing!2) You get a great exchange rateYou’ve left it right until the last moment to get your foreign currency – schoolboy error? Or is it? You head to the exchange counter and miraculously, the exchange rate is even better than the rate you saw online – this day is certainly going well…3) The plane isn’t fullThere’s nothing worse than a cramped plane and a nightmare passenger sitting next you, but no need to worry, as this time, you walk on the plane and see that it’s half empty and there are two free seats next to you. Time to stretch out and pretend you are travelling first class.

As you scratch the cards to reveal a cluster of matching symbols, you have to get the air stewardess to double-check your ticket, you’ve only gone and won £1000! Holiday spending money – sorted. 5) Your flight arrives early at the destinationYour flight left on time but it arrives 30 minutes earlier than expected, thanks to favourable wind conditions. You now have extra time to explore the city and get settled in.6) All your luggage arrives intact and it’s the first off the luggage carouselWe’ve all been in the frustrating position of staring at the conveyor belt and wondering if our luggage has been lost…not today though. As soon as you walk up to the carousel, the light starts flashing and yours is the first suitcase to come out – could this day get any better? last_img read more

Turkey issues new NavTex

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouIN THE wake of President Nicos Anastasiades’ statement conceding to discuss the issue of hydrocarbons as part of the Cyprus problem negotiations, Turkey issued a new NavTex (navigational telex) reserving areas in the eastern Mediterranean – parts of Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone among them – from January 6 to April 6.Early in October, Turkey had issued a NavTex and dispatched its seismic vessel Barbaros into Cyprus’ EEZ, ostensibly for exploration but essentially in an attempt to disrupt ongoing offshore gas drilling, prompting Anastasiades to pull out of the peace talks citing the infringement of the country’s sovereignty.The NavTex expired and the Barbaros retreated to the occupied Famagusta port on December 30, at which point UN special envoy Espen Barth Eide tried to piece the talks back together, urging Anastasiades to issue a statement conceding to incorporating the issue of hydrocarbons in the negotiations for a solution to the Cyprus problem, which the Cypriot President did on Monday.In response, Turkey issued a new NavTex on Tuesday.“Today’s violation of international law by the Turkish government represents the confirmation of President Anastasiades’ indictments of Turkey’s and the Turkish Cypriot leadership’s true intentions,” government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said in a statement.“This decision complicates matters even further, at the same time making it clear even to the most sceptical who bears the responsibility for today’s stalemate, the suspension of the peace talks, and the constant threat of regional instability.”Yesterday, Christodoulides told state radio that Legal Services are already exploring any legal measures against Turkey.“Meanwhile, the government has already started informing foreign governments of the new Turkish provocations, and will continue to do so in the coming days,” he said.The NavTex came at the most inopportune time for the government, one day after sustaining heavy criticism by opposition parties for allowing the issue of hydrocarbons onto the negotiations’ agenda.“Negotiations are at a stalemate, which is extremely dangerous,” said AKEL’s leader Andros Kyprianou. “It is obvious that Turkey will attempt to disrupt our efforts to develop our natural wealth – even worse, Turkey will send out a message that Greek and Turkish Cypriots cannot solve the Cyprus problem themselves.”DIKO leader Nicolas Papadopoulos argued that instead of acting as a deterrent, the President’s concession actually invited Turkey to escalate the stand-off.“As expected, and as DIKO had warned the President, his generous offer did little to satisfy Turkey’s greed,” said Papadopoulos. “On the contrary, this serious concession on our part included natural gas in the Cyprus problem’s agenda and further emboldened Ankara, resulting in the issuance of a new illegal NavTex mere hours later.”EDEK leader Yiannakis Omirou made the same point.“Once more, the tragically thoughtless and catastrophic behaviour of the last 40 years continues,” Omirou said. “Not only do our concessions fail to placate Turkey, they motivate her to new challenges and demands.”Perhaps most painfully, Anastasiades received flak from his own party’s MEP Eleni Theocharous.In a statement, Theocharous said the concession of adding natural gas to the negotiations’ agenda was “dangerous” as it added to a series of earlier concessions with nothing to show for them.“This new gift to Turkey has already been perceived as a weakness and Cyprus’ position in the talks has been weakened,” said Theocharous. “Under these circumstances, returning to the talks will equal our capitulation.”Pre-announcing the issuance of Turkey’s new NavTex on Tuesday, the breakaway regime’s administration issued a statement saying it was prompted by the ‘Greek Cypriot Administration’s’ unilateral drilling activities.“As previously declared, the Turkish Cypriot side will not remain unresponsive to the unilateral activities carried out by the GCA which disregard the inherent rights and interests of the Turkish Cypriot people,” the statement said.“It should also be reiterated that with a view to protecting the rights and interests of the Turkish Cypriot people, the Turkish Cypriot side will continue to take all necessary steps within this framework, including commencement of drilling, in cooperation with Turkey.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
