Cyprus and New Security Issues in the Eastern Mediterranean

Speaker: Euripides L. EVRIVIADES,
High Commissioner for the Republic of Cyprus to the UK

Chair: Professor Kevin Featherstone
Director, Hellenic Observatory, LSE

The accession of Cyprus to the EU in 2004 is the single most important strategic development in the country’s turbulent history since independence in 1960. It affirmed Cyprus’ place in Europe and its importance in the security of the Eastern Mediterranean. In his presentation the High Commissioner for Cyprus, Mr Euripides L. Evriviades, will underline why Cyprus and the EU are important to each other and to the long term security of the region. Will the recently discovered hydrocarbons in the Eastern Mediterranean be a factor of stability? And what about the unresolved Cyprus question? Where does it fit in this strategic matrix? What are the chances for a successful conclusion of the resumed talks? Mr Evriviades will argue that solution of the Cyprus problem is directly related to peace, security and stability in the region.’
