Lavrov urges diplomacy and restraint Updated

first_imgRussia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has called for restraint in regards to Turkey’s actions within Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).He was speaking during a joint news conference with his Cypriot counterpart Ioannis Kasoulides following a meeting of the two in Nicosia.Asked by a reporter about Turkish threats in Cyprus’ EEZ, Lavrov said:“All such issues and controversies should be discussed within the legal framework, with the agreement of all stakeholders.“In this situation, as in any such situation, there is a need for restraint from this threat of using force and from using force itself.”Lavrov arrived in Cyprus earlier in the day for bilateral talks, and on Friday will attend the 127th Ministerial Session of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, the last event under Cyprus’ chairmanship of the CoE.Also on Friday he will be received by president Nicos Anastasiades.He departs Cyprus on Saturday.Speaking through an interpreter, Lavrov reiterated Moscow’s support for a just, lasting and viable settlement of the Cyprus problem, based on relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the agreements reached between the two communities.For his part, Kasoulides said he briefed his Russian counterpart on the current state of play in the Cyprus negotiations and expressed Nicosia’s appreciation for the “unremitting principled position of the Russian Federation”.Kasoulides said he informed Lavrov on Cyprus’ hydrocarbons exploration and exploitation programme and referred to “Turkey’s aggressive policies in the Eastern Mediterranean, which further complicate the efforts to reach a settlement of the Cyprus problem.”Responding to a question, Kasoulides said he discussed this issue with Lavrov, but would not be drawn on the details.“There is a common understanding that international law, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, has to prevail in all circumstances.”Discussions with Lavrov also covered bilateral relations, cooperation in the economic and legal fields, as well as cooperation in international fora.During a working lunch, the two ministers would also push for the finalisation of various agreements under negotiation.The two ministers would be discussing a number of global and regional issues of mutual concern, including Ukraine and the necessity for the full implementation of the Minsk Agreement.On Syria, Kasoulides stressed that Cyprus, the closest EU member state to this country, would like to see a Syrian-led political transition process to establish a democratic, inclusive and representative government by the Syrians, for the Syrians.On EU-Russia relations, Kasoulides commented that “the current state of relations is beneficial to neither side” and expressed hope for the re-evaluation of the situation, leading to a “mutually beneficial reengagement”.Lavrov, in other remarks, called Cyprus an “important time-tested partner in Europe.”Although bilateral trade has shrunk over the past years, it has picked up significantly in recent months, he noted.On international terrorism, Lavrov said it called for a “joint, unified agenda instead of the confrontational policy chosen by several Western countries.”The fight against terrorism calls for a settlement in the Middle East and Northern Africa, but first and foremost in Syria, he went on.Commenting on the state of Russia-EU relations, he said that there is no cause for satisfaction there and noted that cooperation must be based on equal rights and mutual respect. For that to happen, Brussels must stop having a “one-way street game,” Lavrov said.Lavrov was also asked about the alleged passing of classified information to senior Russian officials by US President Donald Trump.Responding, the chief Russian diplomat referred to reports saying that the secret passed related to terrorists’ capability to install untraceable explosives on electronic devices.Lavrov added that a month ago the Trump administration imposed a ban on laptops being allowed on airplanes coming from seven Middle Eastern countries, due to a terrorist threat.“So if you’re talking about that, I see no secret here.”Asked about reports concerning an initiative in Washington to create a Nato-like alliance among Persian Gulf countries, Lavrov said that complicated issues in the Middle East and Northern Africa should be solved on a collective basis, excluding no one.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Taxpayers may still have to pay even after coop sale Updated

first_imgCypriot taxpayers are still not done with the state-owned Cooperative Bank and may be asked to cover future contingent liabilities of unspecified value, experts say.“I am not sure whether we are done with those €4bn, there may be a need for more money,” said economist Marios Clerides, who served as the Co-op’s top executive until mid-2015.He was referring to the €2.35bn government bond issued a month ago and the capital injections of almost €1.7bn that preceded it in 2014 and 2015.The latest bond issue aimed at allaying concerns over the lender’s future amid fears of the need of additional provisions that would cause a capital shortfall.Clerides said additional support may be required depending on the outcome of the negotiations initiated by the Co-op to sell its assets, which already attracted interest from three potential buyers, Hellenic Bank, Cyprus’s third largest lender, and two US funds.“The buyers are likely to press for a lower price for the assets they will acquire in order to achieve a higher return,” he explained, adding that possible layoffs of unneeded staff could also prompt the government to offer compensation to affected workers at the lender, in which the government has a stake exceeding 99 per cent.On Friday, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades signalled that the government was ready to jump in and support affected staff.“The state has the capacity and willingness one way or another to offer security to workers,” the minister said after a meeting with Andreas Matsas, the head of SEK, one of the two largest unions in the private sector, according to the Cyprus News Agency. “We are in anticipation of investor interest and therefore there’s nothing concrete to be said”.The government has acted in a similar fashion already in the past with companies that went out of business, such as in the case of Cyprus Airways or its subsidiary Eurocypria.Moody’s Investors Service, which downgraded the Co-op’s baseline credit assessment from a “caa2” to “ca” last month, just days after the lender announced its intention to seek investors, did not rule out further taxpayer’s money flowing into the bank.“The potential piecemeal sale of Cyprus Cooperative Bank reflects its solvency challenges and our view is that the bank has a provision shortfall which will have to be filled either through a capital increase, with funds coming from private investors or the government, or through the sale of the bank’s assets and liabilities,” said Moody’s analyst Melina Skouridou in an interview.The bank which in exchange for the issued bonds received a €2.5bn liquidity injection from the government in the form of a deposit backed by collateral worth €7.6bn comprising mainly of non-performing loans, made slow progress towards reducing its delinquent loans in the years following the crisis.This was partly because of the foreclosure and insolvency legislation, which was rendered toothless by lawmakers.Former Hellenic Bank executive Yiannis Telonis said that the liquidity injection from the government showed that the problems the bank was facing “were deeper than assumed”.“The bank did not have clear targets,” he said. “It was initially aiming at a listing at the Cyprus Stock Exchange, then they were talking about donating stock to its customers and later switched to a listing in Ireland,” Telonis said.“The buyout is not going to be an easy undertaking, but it has to be successful otherwise we are heading towards adventures,” he added without specifying.The Co-op has given an extension of the deadline for the buyers to submit binding offers until mid-May.You May LikeiBoosterIngenious device for $49 brings fast Internet back homeiBoosterUndoNewsXoXo6 Reasons of Heart Arteries Start Clogging You Never Knew!NewsXoXoUndoSoftware AdviceCloud ERP vs. On-Premise ERPSoftware AdviceUndo LED-lighting the way by 2020UndoFilm review: Child’s Play ***UndoGreece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Legal challenge over BoC restructuring

first_imgBy Elias HazouA FORMER Bank of Cyprus (BoC) board member is mounting a legal challenge against the decision to place the island’s largest lender under administration.In an application filed with the Supreme Court earlier this month, Irini Karamanou, formerly a non-executive member of the bank’s board, is also contesting the decision for the fire-sale of the bank’s Greek operations, as well as the transfer of all of Laiki’s emergency liquidity – which are liabilities on the balance sheet – to BoC.Her application is directed against both the Central Bank of Cyprus and the finance ministry, the two entities co-responsible for restructuring the two Cypriot banks.Whether the Supreme Court agrees to hear her application or dismisses it outright remains to be seen. Only recently the top court ruled that it has no jurisdiction to hear appeals lodged against the ‘bail-in’, noting that the matter falls under private law and not administrative law.But Karamanou hopes the court will see her action as different and will agree to hear the case. That’s because she is demanding neither compensation nor a direct reversal of the haircut decision, although implicitly her application does challenge those decisions.Rather, Karamanou’s application takes the line that, as a board member of BoC, she was unable to meet her fiduciary duties toward the shareholders.She claims the appointment of an administrator for BoC was illegal as the bank was neither bankrupt nor insolvent at the time of the appointment.Therefore the decisions subsequently taken to the detriment of the bank’s shareholders should likewise be considered illegal and void.The bank’s board disagreed with the restructuring, but it was enforced by decree regardless.To back her argument, Karamanou’s application cites the fact that in September 2012 the bank published results showing that it was both solvent and had positive equity, even after sustaining losses due to the write-down of Greek debt that it held.A key point Karamanou raises is an apparent conflict concerning the Central Bank’s sweeping powers. The Central Bank, she says, cannot act as a regulator for the banks – for which someone might argue that the regulator was at least partly responsible for the lenders’ woes – and simultaneously oversee their resolution or restructuring.Under the terms of the bailout, Cyprus was required to fold part of Laiki into BoC; the latter was also required to sell its Greek operations to Piraeus Bank.Karamanou argues that the decision to sell the bank’s Greek operations was a political one, and that it had been taken long in advance of the fact.What’s more, that decision contravened the procedures laid out in the ‘Resolution of Credit and Other Institutions Law’ of March 2013. The law provides for highest-bid tenders prior to the sale of bank operations, something that was never done.In addition, the law stipulates that the operations of a bank that is under administration or undergoing restructuring may be sold to another credit institution, to an ‘interim’ bank, or to an assets management company.But the same law makes no stipulation for selling a bank’s operations (Laiki) to a second bank (BoC) which is also undergoing restructuring. Yet this is precisely what happened with BoC.In her application, Karamanou argues that BoC has landed in hot water precisely as a result of the deals providing for the sale of Greek operations – which stripped the bank of assets – and for assuming Laiki’s €9bn in emergency liquidity without any tradeoffs. Despite the capital controls now in place, these actions have brought about an outflow of deposits due to loss of depositors’ confidence and also a decline in the bank’s goodwill, jeopardising its chances of survival.And regarding the decision to recapitalise the bank through a ‘bail-in’ of depositors, Karamanou says shareholders were never given the chance to raise capital.The point Karamanou makes is that the burden of proof for restructuring the bank fell on the regulator, who needed to support, with data, his decision to place BoC under administration. The regulator never adequately justified its decision, she says.Moreover, the findings of investment firm Pimco – which had calculated the bank’s capital needs – were kept from the BoC leadership.However it’s also true that when in March a decision was taken to restructure the BoC, the bank did need recapitalising as it did not meet core tier 1 capital requirements.On the sale of the bank’s Greek operations and the assumption of Laiki’s ELA obligations, Karamanou says neither of these decisions was ratified by the BoC board at the time as both were perceived not to serve shareholders’ interests.Karamanou resigned along with the rest of the board in late March.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

first_imgCypriots woke up Saturday to the sound of sirens, marking the 45th anniversary of the Turkish invasion.The invasion of Cyprus came only five days after the coup engineered by the military junta, then ruling Greece, that toppled the democratically-elected president of Cyprus, the late Archbishop Makarios III.Air-raid sirens sounded at 5.30am local time when the Turkish invasion was launched and Turkish troops landed on the island`s northern shores.

The feeling that old pains were finally being dealt with was nowhere more visible than in the media and at social gatherings. There are reasons to believe that his age — he was 92 when he died — was a factor in the 90-year sentence pronounced on him Within days of Azam’s death came the ICT’s verdict on another senior Jamaat leader Motiur Rahman Nizami A leading organiser of al-Badr the squad responsible for the abduction and murder of Bengalis in 1971 at the behest of the Pakistan army and ironically a minister in the last government led by Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson Khaleda Zia Nizami was sentenced to death for his criminal acts in 1971 The verdict predictably caused a reaction in the Jamaat It called a hartal for three days But public disillusionment with hartals now being what it is the call did not have much of an impact Life was pretty normal with only educational institutions remaining closed as a matter of precaution On Sunday the Jamaat received a fresh new blow when another leading figure in the party Mir Quasem Ali was awarded the death sentence for commission of crimes similar to those for which Ghulam Azam and Nizami were convicted Mir Quasem Ali has like his party colleagues stealthily but surely rehabilitated himself since 1971 to a point where in the period of the BNP-Jamaat coalition government of 2001-06 he was able to establish an Islamic television channel that was looked upon as a mouthpiece of the Jamaat How do the death of Ghulam Azam and the death penalties for Nizami and Quasem Ali affect the Jamaat A simple answer is — hugely The Jamaat like so many other Islamist organisations in Bangladesh has been under a great deal of pressure from the Awami League (AL)-led government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to a point where it is unable today to emerge in the open The Jamaat is unable to organise public rallies or marches for two fundamental reasons First its reputation — for all the disciplined nature of its organisation — has since 1971 been under a cloud because of its unabashed backing of the Pakistani military action in Bangladesh Second the mayhem that the Jamaat resorted to last year in tandem with the obscurantist Hefazat-e-Islam and with the BNP’s support dragged its already bad reputation further down The judgments delivered on the war criminals especially since the AL entered upon a fresh term in office in January this year have received wide public support and have reinforced the conviction that Hasina is determined to take the trials of all war criminals now in prison to a definitive conclusion She patently has public support on the issue a factor that has kept the Jamaat’s old ally the BNP from voicing a public declaration of support or sympathy for the party over its recent misfortunes Indeed the BNP stayed away from expressing condolences on the death of Ghulam Azam and has kept its silence on the verdicts in relation to Nizami and Quasem Ali The strategy has not been lost on political quarters across the country It is a stance that led a son of Ghulam Azam into venting his anger at the BNP which he accused of letting down the Jamaat While the pace of the war crimes trials has certainly picked up and drawn public support there are obvious signs of the government becoming self-confident about its actions It remains dismissive of the BNP’s repeated calls for a dialogue on what Zia sees as a new election under a caretaker administration The government remains unmoved and insists that it will go the full five years of its current term in office Under the provisions of the constitution the next election will be held in 2019 The BNP has in these past few months been threatening a mass movement to force the government to concede new elections But with almost all its senior leaders including Zia being enmeshed in legal problems and the party itself in disarray its immediate future does not look good The war crimes trials and the predicament of the political opposition apart there is genuine concern in Bangladesh today about reports of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) fugitives finding shelter in the Indian state of West Bengal and allegedly planning terror operations including assassinations of Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia in Dhaka These reports have rattled Dhaka to the extent that Bangladesh’s prime minister has made it clear that while her government has put an end to activities on Bangladesh soil by Indian separatists it is now for the Indian authorities to take action against Bangladeshi criminals holed up in India A particular point is not missed in Dhaka — that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee by ignoring these fugitive Islamists in her narrow electoral interest of reaching out to the Muslim community has helped create a new crisis in the region The Trinamool Congress government goes on losing friends in Bangladesh
