Cypriot President in Paris for Mediterranean summit

by Athena Arsalidou

Paris, (CNA) --- French President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to extend an invitation to the Cypriot President, the Turkish Prime Minister and the UN Secretary General to visit Paris in July to participate in the summit of the Union of the Mediterranean.

According French government sources, the invitation comes in connection with the summit, to be held on July 13th in Paris, between the European Union and third countries of the Mediterranean basin.

France, which will assume the EU six-monthly rotating Presidency in July, is expecting to examine progress in the bicommunal meetings between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, aiming at reunifying Cyprus divided since the Turkish invasion of 1974.

Paris has indicated that if and when invited, it would be ready to contribute to efforts towards a Cyprus solution.

The same sources have not ruled out the possibility that UNSG Ban Ki-moon will hold in Paris separate meetings with Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the Cyprus question.

The French President, who in July will also preside over the UNSC, will invite to Paris EU leaders, leaders of third countries of the Mediterranean, the UNSG and the General Secretary of the Arab League.

According to the same sources, Sarkozy hopes that everybody will be able to participate in the summit, which aims to define the details of the French President’s idea to create a Union for the Mediterranean.

The Union for the Mediterranean, which will include the EU and third countries of the Mediterranean basin, aims at overcoming problems which have occurred during the Barcelona Process.

Sarkozy’s idea for a Union for the Mediterranean provides for an agreement to be reached in Paris on July 13th, according to which EU members and third countries of the Mediterranean basin will begin a more concrete cooperation.

According to CNA sources, the first project which will most probably be adopted will be the de-pollution of the Mediterranean Sea.

Other projects include the use of solar energy and the construction of road networks.
