The Greek navy continuously patrols Cyprus' Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) amid forays into the island's oil-and-gas fields by Turkey, said Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides after his visit to the 'Lieutenant Roussen' warship, which docked in Limassol over the weekend.

The patrols are 'without fanfare' and are part of the recent deal signed with Greece and Egypt to fight terrorism and increase energy security in the Eastern Mediterranean, said the minister.

A good reason for a party - launching a network

Saturday featured another almost ‘spur-of-the-moment event’. I had not spent a lot of time planning the launch party of Mary’s Network - simply because I didn’t know when I was going to be ready for it logistically.

Many other things have also been pointing me into the direction of creating this more formal framework. My new, much larger home for one has proven to be a perfect move - literally - opening the doors to many more new people and events, providing spare rooms which I am able to make available to members whenever needed.

Turkey refuses to recognise any of the bilateral agreements made between Cyprus, Greece, Israel and Egypt, and Mr. Davutoglu said it would be 'impossible' to develop the East-Med Corridor, to transport natural gas from Israel and Cyprus to the EU.
