Kyprianou quits EU for foreign ministry job

The European Union Commissioner for Health Markos Kyprianou has submitted his resignation in order to head the Foreign Ministry in Cyprus.

Kyprianou has been appointed as Cyprus' new Foreign Minister by President Demetris Christofias who has just taken office.

The semi-official Cyprus News Agency reported from Brussels that Kyprianou submitted his resignation to the Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso.

The EU Commission also announced that the resignation will be effective as soon as a successor has been nominated by the Republic of Cyprus and appointed by the Council.

Barroso is reportedly consulting with the Cyprus president over the nomination of Kyprianou's successor.

Until his resignation becomes effective, Kyprianou will continue to exercise his mandate as a member of the European Commission, says an EU news release.

Kyprianou, 48, a lawyer by profession, served as Cyprus' finance minister from March 2003 to April 2004. He became a member of the European Commission in May 2004.
