Partners to Grow LNG as Marine Fuel in UK North Sea

first_imgzoom ExxonMobil, Babcock International Group, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM), Calor and Orkney Islands Council have signed an agreement to collaborate in the Caledonia LNG project.The aim is to develop the infrastructure, storage and technical support needed to enable safe liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations for customers in the north of the UK and North Sea, including bunkering.The partners parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on November 22 to investigate opportunities to supply LNG for marine and land-based applications.“The Memorandum of Understanding is a clear indicator that ExxonMobil, Babcock International Group, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) and Calor are determined to leverage their history and expertise with LNG to work with Orkney Islands Council to maximise the possibilities for customers,” Luca Volta, LNG Venture Manager at ExxonMobil Marine Fuels, said.“We will also draw upon our extensive global marine network to provide our customers in northern UK and the North Sea with LNG bunker fuel.”The recent decision by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to implement a global 0.50% sulphur cap on vessel emissions in 2020 is likely to increase demand for compliant low-sulphur fuel options, which could include LNG.ExxonMobil will explore the potential for its global marine network to deliver LNG bunker fuel to customers in the region as well as providing technical support and expertise to enable safe LNG bunkering operations.Babcock International Group will provide storage, handling and distribution of LNG, while BSM would supervise the building, management and operation of the marine craft and related assets for the project.Calor will investigate opportunities to supply LNG to industrial and automotive sector customers and Orkney Islands Council would provide port services and security.last_img read more

AAP in secret poll pact with Congress… Delhi voters fully aware of this: Manoj Tiwari

first_imgNew Delhi: Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday launched a fresh attack targeting AAP-chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He said that Kejriwal is now heavily demoralised after seeing BJP’s candidate list for the seven seats in the Capital and is hence contesting the upcoming polls in a secret alliance with the Congress. “The voters of Delhi very well know this fact,” he said.Tiwari alleged that Kejriwal has given up on his own candidates as part of some understanding between him and Congress leaders. He claimed that the Delhi CM has become the enemy of voters by not implementing some welfare schemes brought in by the BJP government at the Centre.

This shows that on May 12, the people of Delhi will vote for BJP,” he said.last_img read more

Grofers pursues profit, targets IPO in 3 years

first_imgKolkata: Online supermarket major Grofers India is pursuing profitability by consolidation and focusing on doubling its sales to Rs 5,000 crore by FY’20. The company is also gearing up to hit the capital market with initial public offer (IPO) within the next three years. “We have closed FY’19 with Rs 2,500 crore sales. At present our monthly sales have touched Rs 225 crore, growing at 8.5 per cent month on month.

The same strategy helped the company to inch closer to break even in major cities in the northern and eastern parts of the country. Grofers, despite raising $60 million recently, remained focused on consolidating its presence in 12 cities (where it is already present) across the country to push profitability instead of aggressive geographical expansion.last_img read more

On International Day Ban leads UN call for action to end violence

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is leading a United Nations call on world leaders to “make good” on pledges they have made to end violence against women, a scourge that affects millions of women and girls worldwide.”Up to 70 per cent of women experience physical or sexual violence at some point in their lifetime (and) as many as a quarter of all pregnant women are affected,” Mr. Ban said in message to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.”Millions of women and girls around the world are assaulted, beaten, raped, mutilated or even murdered in what constitutes appalling violations of their human rights,” he added.The UN General Assembly designated 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women in a 1999 resolution inviting governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to “organize activities designed to raise public awareness of the problem on that day.”The day harks to the 25 November, 1960, assassination of the three Mirabal sisters, who were political activists in the Dominican Republic, on orders of Dominican ruler Rafael Trujillo.”On this International Day, I call on all governments to make good on their pledges to end all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world,” Mr. Ban said.The call reinforces a similar appeal made by the head of the UN agency committed to gender equality and the empowerment of women. UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet used a video message to announce the launch of COMMIT, an initiative asking governments to make national commitments that will be showcased globally.”We must do better to protect women,” Ms. Bachelet urged, as the agency noted in a press release that 603 million women live in countries where domestic violence is still not a crime.UN Women also administers the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, which is the world’s leading global grant-making mechanism exclusively dedicated to addressing violence against women and girls. This month, it announced plans to disburse $8 million to local initiatives in 18 countries.In his message, Mr. Ban took the opportunity to shine a spotlight on additional outreach initiatives launched in his name. One is his landmark UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign, launched in 2008. It gathers a host of UN agencies and offices to galvanize action across the UN system to prevent and punish violence against women.”All too often, perpetrators go unpunished (while) women and girls are afraid to speak out because of a culture of impunity,” said Mr. Ban, adding the initiative was “engaging governments, international organizations, civil society groups, the media and ordinary citizens.”He said his Network of Men Leaders initiative – which supports the work of women around the world to defy destructive stereotypes, embrace equality, and inspire men and boys everywhere to speak out against violence – was expanding.The shooting last month of Malala Yousufzai, a 14-year-old Pakistani girl known for opposing Pakistani Taliban restrictions on female education, is spotlighted in the messages from the UN human rights chief and the head of the UN agency mandated to advance education worldwide.”The sad truth is that Malala’s case is not an exceptional one and, had she been less prominent, her attempted murder might have passed more or less unnoticed,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said in a news release issued from her Geneva-based office.”Despite all the advances in women’s rights around the world, violence against girls and women remains one of the most common human rights abuses – and the assault on their fundamental right to education continues in many countries,” she added, stressing how violence against women and denying them education were often “closely related.”From the Paris headquarters of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Director-General Irina Bokova said Ms. Yousufzai’s story was “sadly, far from unique.””Across the world, girls and women face violence as they try to exercise their basic rights,” she stated in a press release. “Violence, and its threat, is one of the key factors forcing girls to drop out of school.”UNESCO will stage on 10 December a high-level advocacy event aimed at mobilizing a “deeper commitment” to educating girls and celebrating the “courage of young girls like Malala Yousufzai,” Ms. Bokova said. read more

Opinion 5 questions ahead of Ohio States matchup in Minneapolis

Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett carries the ball during a game against Michigan State on Nov. 8 in East Lansing, Mich. OSU won, 49-37.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorFollowing arguably the biggest win at Ohio State during the Urban Meyer era, the Buckeyes are preparing for their second-consecutive ranked opponent.Entering the third week of the College Football Playoff rankings, the Buckeyes jumped up six spots to No. 8 and the Minnesota Golden Gophers appeared for the first time on the list at No. 25.As the Buckeyes get set to travel to blustery Minneapolis, The Lantern sports editors have come up with a list of five things to look for when OSU takes on the Golden Gophers.1. Can OSU keep its eye on the prize?Let’s be honest, last week’s win over Michigan State was probably the biggest win for the Buckeyes since the 2010 Rose Bowl against Oregon.But was it too much for the Buckeyes to handle?The mantra around OSU since Meyer arrived in Columbus has been giving players and coaches 24 hours to enjoy a win, but redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas said Monday that the Buckeyes were still enjoying the victory.With that said, will the Buckeyes overlook a Minnesota team that is coming off of a 51-14 drubbing of Iowa?Only time will tell.2. Will the weather affect the Buckeye offense?While the entire Buckeye starting offensive line is from Ohio, their starting quarterback is from Texas, and probably hasn’t played in a game as cold as he will Saturday.While the kickoff temperature was 39 degrees last week in East Lansing, Mich., the estimated high temperature in Minneapolis for Saturday, as of Wednesday night, was just 28 degrees with a low of nine.Barrett, who has ignited the Buckeye offense, averaging 304.22 yards per game by himself has been on the sidelines for games like this (see 2013 games against Indiana and Michigan) but has never had to play in such bitter temps.Just one current Buckeye offensive player was on the roster the last time OSU played in Minnesota, and that is redshirt-senior Darryl Baldwin, who was still a defensive lineman at the time.The Buckeyes won 52-10 in the last matchup in 2010, a win that was later vacated because of NCAA violations committed by former coach Jim Tressel, then-quarterback Terrelle Pryor and other players.3. Can J.T. Barrett make a Heisman push?If Barrett can have an encore performance from his 386 total yard, five touchdown game against the Spartans, there is a good chance Barrett could enter serious Heisman discussions.The redshirt-freshman made his first appearance on ESPN’s Heisman Watch this week, and currently ranks second in the FBS in touchdowns responsible for with 34 (26 passing, eight rushing).In addition, Barrett is just five touchdown passes away from breaking the school record for touchdown passes in a season, set by the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner, Troy Smith.For Barrett to enter serious consideration, there is no doubt the Buckeyes will have to win their remaining games, plus a Big Ten title.But if Barrett can look as good as he did against Michigan State the rest of the season, don’t be surprised if you see the Texas native in New York for the Heisman ceremonies.4. Can Minnesota senior running back David Cobb emulate Michigan State’s Jeremy Langford?Minnesota senior running back David Cobb (27) runs the ball during a game against Purdue on Oct. 18 in Minneapolis. Minnesota won, 39-38.Credit: Courtesy of TNSSure, OSU ended up beating the Spartans, but the redshirt-senior running back Langford gouged the Buckeyes’ defense for 137 yards and three touchdowns on just 18 carries.Now that same defense has to find a way to slow down Cobb, who has already racked up 1,205 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground this season. He’s the workhorse of the Minnesota offense — he has 227 carries while the team as a whole has only attempted 165 passes.Apart from an Oct. 25 misstep against Illinois, the Golden Gophers’ only loss this season accompanied Cobb’s worst game of the year. Minnesota lost to Texas Christian University, 30-7, in September, and Cobb had just 41 yards on 15 carries. Outside of that game, he’s had at least 71 rushing yards per game — including a pair of 200-plus yard outings. If the Buckeyes can slow Cobb down, it could be a long day for redshirt-sophomore quarterback Mitch Leidner. But if he gets rolling early, OSU might face a difficult task to keep its seven-game winning streak alive.5. What role will the OSU H-backs play?With sophomore H-back Dontre Wilson — the Buckeyes’ typical starter — out with a broken foot, it’ll be up to a few different players to pick up the slack.The first option is likely to be redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall, who has already shined multiple times for OSU this season. The former high school quarterback can line up in a variety of positions for the Buckeyes, including at quarterback in the wildcat package.Leading up to the showdown in Minneapolis, Meyer even hinted that the Buckeyes “have a couple passes” in place for Marshall going forward. He failed to connect on his only passing attempt so far this season, but Meyer and the coaching staff clearly have some faith in his arm.But even if Marshall doesn’t let it fly, the H-back spot could have a notable impact for the Buckeyes. Meyer mentioned that freshman Noah Brown will be in the mix, and at 240 pounds, he adds a new dimension to the OSU attack.No matter if Brown is causing mismatch problems with his size or if Marshall is showing off his arm, the Buckeyes will likely try to put as much firepower on the field as they can.OSU is scheduled to take on the Golden Gophers on Saturday at noon in Minneapolis. read more

Children confused by more than one Santa at winter wonderland event

first_imgMum Natalie Miura, 30, who took her two children aged six and two, said her children were bored after being shown a DVD advertising aspects of the hotel.They were then taken to enjoy the festive experiences but she added: “It was just so disorganised. We were like cattle being herded into room after room.  “The elves who were there were all quite young and not in character. When we finally got to see Santa it had been a long wait, there were water bottles littered all over the place. “You could hear other Santa’s talking in different rooms, which didn’t affect my two-year-old but my six-year-old started asking questions about who was talking and what was going on.” A winter wonderland event has attracted complaints from parents whose children were confused by hearing multiple Santas talking to youngsters in different rooms.The Celtic Manor hotel resort in Newport, Wales, has run its Christmas Kingdom since 2012 and includes a Santa’s Grotto, ice skating area, bratwurst hut and food stands.However, this year the event has seen people complain about the festivities on social media. You could hear other Santa’s talking in different rooms, which didn’t affect my two-year-old but my six-year-old started asking questions about who was talking and what was going on.Mum Natalie Miura She added: “It was not a magical experience for the children and it was very disappointing.” A spokesman for Celtic Manor said: “We aim to make the Christmas Kingdom a truly magical experience for all the family. We are disappointed to hear that some of our guests do not feel that this was the experience they received this year. “The event has been running at the resort since 2012 and has always been hugely popular, with many families returning year after year to enjoy Santa’s Grotto and the other many festive activities at the resort. “However, we take all customer feedback on board and are always looking for ways to build on our customers’ experience at Christmas Kingdom to ensure that we deliver an enjoyable event for our guests.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Fireweed Zinc positive PEA on Macmillan Pass project

first_imgFireweed Zinc Ltd reports positive results of an independent PEA for its Macmillan Pass project in Yukon, Canada. The PEA was prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 by JDS Energy and Mining, with work on tailings and water by Knight Piesold Consulting.The picture shows drill core from the Tom West Zone showing layers of zinc and lead rich mineralisation.Production and Economic Highlights:18-year mine life with 32.7 Mt of mineralization mined at 4,900 t/d average processing rate1.54Mt of Zinc, 0.88Mt of Lead, and 37Moz of Silver in concentrate shippedAverage yearly contained-metal production of 85,000 t Zinc, 48,000 t Lead and 2Moz SilverRobust economics using metals prices of $1.21/lb Zn, $0.98/lb Pb, and $16.80/oz AgPre-Tax NPV at 8% of C$779 million CAD and IRR of 32%After-Tax NPV at 8% of C$448 million and IRR of 24%Pre-production CAPEX of $404 millionPayback period of 4 yearsStarter-pits on Tom West and Jason Main zones reduce up-front capitalNumerous opportunities for significant economic improvementKnown zones remain open for expansion, including into high-grade areasHighly prospective and large land package untested with modern exploration methods.“This first NI43-101-compliant PEA on the Macmillan Pass Project represents a significant step as we progress towards production. Project economics in the PEA demonstrate that Macmillan Pass is not just viable at the zinc, lead and silver prices levels contemplated in the study, but highly robust,” commented Brandon Macdonald, Chief Executive Officer. “With consideration of the exploration upside not just at the known zones, but also within the broader land package, the project is steadily shaping up to be a premiere district-scale zinc mining camp in the mining-friendly Yukon Territory.”Off-site charges include concentrate transport to Skagway for loading onto ocean-going cargo ships bound for smelter destinations yet to be determined but assumed to be in Asia. The charges also include treatment charges and penalties as shown in the table below.This PEA is based on a mine plan for delivery of 32.66 Mt at a diluted head grade of 9.07% Zn equivalent (5.31% Zn, 3.56% Pb and 43.41g.t Ag) delivered to the processing plant.Initial material will be recovered at a rate of about 5,000 t/d by conventional truck and shovel surface mining from both the Tom and Jason deposits. During the third year, production will transition to underground mining using Avoca-style sub-level retreat longhole stoping, vertical crater retreat (VCR) and Alimak stoping. Stopes will be filled with a combination of waste rock and paste and cemented rock fill.Open pit mining accounts for 13% or 4.2 Mt of the total 32.7 Mt of material mined and processed. VCR and LH methods account for 75% of the material mined and processed by underground methods.Mining recovery and dilution factors were applied by mining method. Average open pit mining recovery and dilution were 95% and 10% respectively. Average underground mining recovery and dilution were 92% and 21% respectively.Existing surface roads and underground development will be rehabilitated and used as part of the mine plan. Mine access portals at multiple elevations are planned to maximize natural ventilation and dewatering of underground operations. Open pits have been designed to maintain safe working distance from all major water ways.Diesel powered mobile equipment would be used to conduct all open pit and underground mining activities. Underground crushing and conveying would provide low cost mineral transport from the Tom deposit, while the Jason mine being further from the mill site would utilize truck transport.The company reported details of metallurgical testing with excellent results in a news release dated May 15, 2018. The project incorporates a standard comminution, flotation separation flow sheet including a primary crusher feeding a single SAG mill, thence a ball mill, followed by selective two and three-stage flotation to produce two concentrate products for shipment to offsite smelters.The iron levels are low, at about 1.5%, a feature desired by zinc smelters.  Deleterious element levels were generally low, except for mercury at 155 ppm and SiO2 at 4% in the global zinc concentrate. Either or both may incur modest smelter penalties.Site access for most raw materials, fuel and supplies will be via the existing Canol Road (Yukon Highway 6). The Project site also has a 740 m long gravel airstrip. The unpaved road runs 229-km from paved Highway 4, the Robert Campbell Highway at Ross River, to the Project site. It will require upgrade and repairs to accommodate dual-trailer concentrate trucks with a 40-t payload. Maximum travel speed will be 50 km/h as the design basis for difficult sections, and 80 km/h where upgrades are not cost prohibitive. The route includes a barge crossing over the Pelly River at Ross River.The estimated connected load for the project is 10.6 MW, and the operating demand is 68,432 MWh/y. Power is to be supplied by on-site liquified natural gas (LNG) fired generators. LNG will be trucked from Dawson Creek, BC, and stored on-site.No specific designs or plans were undertaken for water supply but a water management system for plant make-up water is budgeted. Water is plentiful in the area. Local surface water supplies should be more than adequate for process and potable needs. Tailings return water will somewhat reduce the need for process water. Package sanitary plants are readily available and work well for sanitary needs of the camp, dries, and process area restrooms.The study base case for the nearby tailings management facility is conventional tailings slurry disposal in a valley fill arrangement with the tailings embankment designed to be a rock-filled structure with granular filter zones on the upstream face. The embankment construction material will be borrowed from the tailings management facility impoundment where possible and the entire facility will be lined with a HDPE geomembrane liner.last_img read more

After waiting for a few seconds, Banerjee realised that due to some technical problem the money was not disbursed. He left the ATM counter without cancelling the transaction. As soon as he went out, two youths entered the counter. When Banerjee went outside, he got a text on his phone stating that Rs 8,000 had been withdrawn from his account. Banerjee immediately rushed to the ATM counter and saw the two doing something to the ATM machine. When he opposed them, the duo allegedly tried to flee. Having no other option, Banerjee shouted for help. Meanwhile, an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of Bidhannagar Traffic Police, Nihar Biswas, was passing through the area. Hearing Banerjee shout he rushed inside and was able to catch one of the miscreants, identified as Sanjay Mandal. During interrogation, police came to know that it is a huge racket which operates across the country. Later, the case was handed over to Bidhannagar Cyber Crime police station for further investigation.last_img read more

UK govt agenda focuses on immigration economy

first_img Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Since King Charles I tried to arrest members of the House of Commons in 1642 _ and ended up deposed, tried and beheaded _ the monarch has been barred from entering the Commons.In another symbol of the traditional hostility between Commons and crown, a lawmaker was held at Buckingham Palace as a “hostage” during the ceremony to ensure the monarch’s safe return.This year, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall attended the state opening alongside the queen.It is being seen as another sign of the heir to the throne’s increasingly prominent role as he takes over more duties from the 87-year-old monarch. Buckingham Palace announced Tuesday that Charles would attend a Commonwealth heads of government conference in Sri Lanka in November in place of the queen, who is cutting back on long-distance travel.___Jill Lawless can be reached at There was no hint of deviation from the government’s commitment to deficit-reducing spending cuts, but the speech announced infrastructure investment in energy and the water system, and a bill to start building a high-speed rail link from London to England’s second city, Birmingham, and northern England.The government also threw a few nuggets to taxpayers wearied by rising prices and stagnating salaries. It promised better and cheaper childcare, a simpler state pension system and a cap on long-term care bills so the elderly don’t have to sell their homes to meet care bills.On immigration, the speech said the government would make Britain a country that “accepts people who will contribute and deters those who will not.”Proposed immigration measures would limit newcomers’ access to health care, fine businesses that employ people without the legal right to work in Britain and make it easier to deport foreign citizens convicted of crimes.The measures are intended to counter impressions that some migrants get a free ride on the welfare state _ a perception that has fueled support for the anti-Europe U.K. Independence Party, a threat to Cameron’s Conservatives. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix The event’s mix of extravagant surroundings and prosaic content was starker than usual at a time of spluttering economic growth. Britain’s economy has been through two periods of recession since the global financial crisis hit in 2008, and grew by only 0.3 percent in the first quarter of this year.Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy, Nick Clegg, said in an introduction to the speech that Britain still faced big challenges, but “our resolve to turn our country around has never been stronger.”In a ritual she has enacted dozens of times during her 61-year reign, the queen was driven from Buckingham Palace to Parliament in a horse-drawn carriage, escorted by mounted members of the Household Cavalry in scarlet tunics and gleaming breastplates.Dressed in an ivory gown and wearing the diamond-encrusted Imperial State Crown, she delivered the speech from a gilded throne in the House of Lords.The speech is written on parchment whose ink takes three days to dry, but it took the queen only seven minutes to read it.It promised “an economy where people who work hard are properly rewarded,” with laws to “reduce the burden of excessive regulation on businesses” and enshrine consumer rights.

Don Shooter shows health improvement 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Mark Serwotka, leader of the Public and Commercial Services union, condemned the measures as “a shrill and desperate cry to satisfy the extremes of the Tory Party.”The speech also said the government would press ahead with plans for a new school curriculum, intended to raise standards but criticized by opponents as back-to-basics rote learning.The legislative schedule was also notable for its absences.There was no mention of contentious plans to allow police and spy agencies to snoop on email traffic, Web browsing and social media sites. The measures were announced last year in the draft Communications Data Bill, but sparked an outcry from civil liberties campaigners.Instead, the queen announced unspecified new measures to fight crime in cyberspace.The government also disappointed public health advocates by shelving plans for a minimum alcohol price and plain cigarette packaging.The annual pageant draws heavily on the history of the power struggle between the monarchy and Parliament. Lawmakers were summoned from the House of Commons to listen to the queen by Black Rod, a security official _ but only complied after first slamming the door in his face to symbolize their independence. LONDON (AP) – The message was one of thrift and austerity, but the messenger was opulence incarnate.Britain’s Conservative-led government on Wednesday announced a modest program of legislation to tighten immigration rules, curb welfare expenses, encourage business and invest in infrastructure _ in a speech read by a monarch on a gilded throne wearing a crown studded with 3,000 diamonds.The contrast was part of the state opening of Parliament, an annual pageant of pomp and politics centered on the Queen’s Speech, a legislative program written by the government but read out by the monarch before a crowd of lawmakers, ermine-robed peers and ceremonial officials in bright garb evoking centuries past.

Pretexts not an excuse for continuing deadlock in talks

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades said on Saturday that pretexts, wherever they may come from, were not enough of an excuse for the deadlock in the settlement talks to go on.Speaking to reporters, on the sidelines of a memorial service in Limassol of former President Spyros Kyprianou, Anastasiades, again expressed his determination to continue the dialogue.Commenting on whether he intended to take any actions for the lifting of the deadlock, he said, “I do not think there is any other move besides everything that has been done until now, and the determination to continue the dialogue”.The talks were abruptly interrupted last month after Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci was angered by the decision of parliament have the anniversary of the 1950 Enosis referendum that sought union with Greece, commemorated in schools.Akinci had put forward as a condition of his return to the talks the rescinding of the House vote and for Anastasiades to call on the parliament to take this action. His request was turned down by Anastasiades, who, even though he conceded the vote had been “a mistake”, accused the Turkish Cypriot side earlier in the week of seeking a pretext to stall peace talks to avoid an overlap with Turkey’s constitutional referendum next month.“I don’t believe that the pretexts, wherever they may come from, are enough of an excuse for the deadlock in the talks on Cyprus problem to continue,” the president said on Saturday.Anastasiades, who was in Brussels earlier in the week for a number of meetings and to attend the European Council Summit, expressed his satisfaction with the meetings held.“I have to say I am absolutely satisfied with regard to what had been the issue at hand, namely that the demand for the four freedoms is something that concerns all the (EU) member states and not (just) Cyprus of course,” he said.Turkey had requested that the four freedoms bestowed by the EU acquis be likewise applied to Turkish nationals on the island post-solution.“It would have been a bad precedent – that is how we all see it – if Cyprus or any member state, decided, in violation of the Treaty of the EU, to grant the four freedoms to any citizens of third countries,” the president said.You May LikeYahoo SearchResearch Compact SUVs.
