Gas Games in the Eastern Mediterranean are Threatening Europe
August 26, 2017

The European Commission is offering European consumers the so-called Southern Gas Corridor, which provides for the supply, in particular, of Azerbaijani and Central Asian gas along the Turkey–Greece–Italy route.

Can water from Turkey help reunify Cyprus?
August 26, 2015

A recently completed pipeline crossing beneath the Mediterranean will carry 75 million cubic meters of fresh water annually from Turkey to the northern i.e. Turkish part of the divided island of Cyprus. While this is certainly a positive development for the isolated Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), which is suffering not only from severe droughts but also from an international embargo since its unilateral declaration of independence in 1983, the important question is what effect it is going to have with regard to prospects of reunification of the island. Will the water coming from Turkey through the pipeline, which is named Barış Suyu (Peace Water) by Turks, live up to its name and bring the two communities living on Cyprus closer together, or will it have the opposite effect by turning the Turkish part of the island into a dependence of Turkey?

Events in Greece Could Follow the Cypriot or Argentine Scenario
March 26, 2015

…With the debt and financial situation the way it is, Brussels (EU), Frankfurt (ECB) and Washington (IMF) can hardly risk making drastic decisions regarding Greek debt. After all, the response could be a declaration of default on the Greek government’s obligations, which total around €320 billion. It would be more than enough to cause a chain reaction involving the bankruptcies of European banks and companies which, in turn, could bring on government defaults and the collapse of the house of cards known as the European Union…

March 3, 2015

…The issue of Ukraine and the sanctions war against Russia initiated by the United States make surface new trends to diversify the European political landscape. This is the background against which Nicos Anastasiades, the President of Cyprus, visited Russia on February 24-27… President Anastasiades emphasized that he opposed the idea of sanctions war with Russia. It’s not just a declaration; this point of view is supported by Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

July 4, 2013

Experts say there is a candidate to enter the elite club of 13 members once the rich East Mediterranean deposits start to be developed. The vast sea bottom natural gas fields were discovered a few years ago.
