”Maritime Cyprus” ends urging Turkey to lift embargo on Cyprus ship

Turkey, an EU candidate country, should lift its embargo against Cypriot flagged vessels and thus fully implement the Customs Union Protocol it has already signed late July. This was underlined today at a press conference marking the closing of this year’s ”Maritime Cyprus 2005” Conference that took place in the coastal town of Limassol with the participation of European Union top officials and 800 delegates from 35 countries.
