Update on Shelburne Harbour Aquaculture Site

first_imgGovernment continues to monitor the situation at an aquaculture site in Shelburne Harbour, that reported damage on Feb. 15, due to a major storm. The site has experienced a higher than expected rate of mortality since the storm. Dead fish from the site will not enter the human food chain. As a precaution, aquatic animal health staff of the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture took samples of the dead fish. No reportable disease was found. “We continue to receive updates from the operator as we monitor the situation and will update the public as the situation warrants,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell.

New Brunswick spring flood efforts beginning to move from response to recovery

first_imgFREDERICTON — The director of New Brunswick’s Emergency Measures Organization says the response to this year’s spring flooding is slowly transforming from a response to a recovery operation.“Most regions along the Saint John River should be out of the flood stage by the end of this week,” Greg MacCallum said Tuesday. He said water levels along most of the river are making a slow but steady decline.However, areas between Jemseg and Saint John — along the river’s southern reaches — are expected to remain at or above flood stage until Saturday.But that doesn’t mean the response to the flood is over, he said.“Things start to look like they’re getting back to normal in some places and then you drive five miles and you see a road that you can’t go further on,” MacCallum said. “That’s to be expected.”The Transportation Department confirmed Tuesday that 82 roads remained closed, but many of them are expected to reopen in the next few days.The Trans-Canada Highway was closed to traffic between Oromocto and Riverglade, but local residents as far as Gagetown and Petitcodiac were being allowed to use the highway to get to their homes.Ahmed Dassouki, director of the department’s operations branch, said the entire highway could be reopened this week.He said the water has retreated and most of the debris, such as trees and driftwood, has been removed.However, he said the highway requires an inspection once all the debris has been cleared away.The New Brunswick director of the Canadian Red Cross said while some people have begun returning to their homes, the agency is still housing 433 people in hotels.Bill Lawlor said free household cleanup kits are being distributed, and a fundraising effort has generated $241,000 so far.About 240 soldiers had been helping with the flood response, but that number is now down to 150, and Lt.-Col. Sean French says more soldiers will be returning to Canadian Forces Base Gagetown in the coming days.The public is being advised to boil any well water that may have been contaminated by the floodwaters.MacCallum said there’s still a lot of work ahead, but the weather forecast looks good for the rest of the week.“We will exercise patience and wait for the sun to come out and the waters to recede,” he said.Kevin Bissett, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Insider QA Zero Motorcycles CEO on tax credits rivals

first_imgSam Paschel is the CEO of Zero Motorcycles Inc., a privately-held company based in Scotts Valley, California, that designs and makes electric motorcycles and powertrains, including fleet vehicles for police and the military. The company was started in 2006 by Neal Saiki, a former NASA engineer.The Q&A has been edited for clarity and length.__Q: How has your industry changed over the last decade or so?A: Zero is driven by two separate dynamics: the trends in the electric vehicle space and those in the traditional motorcycle market.In the traditional motorcycle market, overall volume peaked most recently in 2007. After the financial collapse of 2008, the market has seen a slow and steady climb but still hasn’t returned to pre-recession levels.The electric vehicle market has seen explosive growth driven by improvements in technology, infrastructure investment and rapidly growing acceptance of electric vehicles generally. We are very fortunate that our business has consistently followed the trends in the electric vehicle space and hasn’t been limited by slower growth in the motorcycle market.Q: How much attention do you pay to your competition?A: We’re a challenger brand with a disruptive product. We look at the competition in an effort to understand the areas where we need to conform to industry practices and standards to connect with consumers, and where we can break from convention to meet consumers’ needs most effectively.Q: You testified before a U.S. House committee to make the case for extending consumer tax credits for two- and three-wheel plug-in vehicles. You said it was a critical time in your company’s development and for an emerging American industry. Can you explain?A: Zero is just winding down the best year in its history. We’ve seen incredible growth because of the support from our dealers and the years of work we have put into perfecting our motorcycles and our powertrain. The electric motorcycle market is now international and competition is heating up. Several of our key competitors are located in countries in the European Union and around the world with more progressive tax policies for two- and three-wheel electric vehicles.We can make those vehicles one of the next great homegrown industries. But without that same tax-credit support here at home, where most of our volume historically is located, we run the risk of wasting our head start.Q: How did the lack of a tax-credit extension affect the company and sales? Are motorcycle buyers sensitive to tax credits?A: We’ve seen a strong link between the presence or absence of tax credits and the pace of growth both domestically and in international markets. As tax credits become available for electric vehicles, our sales consistently and dramatically outperform years in which those same credits were absent.Marcy Gordon, The Associated Presslast_img read more

German court says Catholic Church can keep billions secret

BERLIN — A court in the western city of Cologne has ruled that Germany’s richest Catholic archdiocese doesn’t have to reveal what it does with the billions it receives from taxpayers each year.The investigative journalism group Correctiv had sued for the information, arguing that the Archdiocese of Cologne should be bound by laws granting media access to government information because much of its revenue comes from an income tax paid by Catholics in Germany.But Cologne’s administrative court ruled Thursday that the way the archdiocese invests its annual income of almost 3 billion euros ($3.4 billion) is protected by the church’s constitutionally guaranteed autonomy.The Archdiocese of Cologne welcomed the ruling, saying it already provides “full transparency and regular reports” on its long-term investments, which it said follow ethical principles.The Associated Press read more

UN ready to assist rescue and relief effort as dam collapses in

According to news reports, the collapse of the dam created flash flooding conditions that swept through Attapeu province in south-eastern Laos, submerging villages and leaving more than 6,000 homeless. “The Secretary-General is saddened by the loss of life and significant damage caused by a break in the hydroelectric dam under construction…adding to the previous destruction caused by Tropical Storm Son,” said his Spokesman Stéphane Dujarric in a statement.At least 20 people are believed to have died and many more who are missing are feared dead. It was reported that continuous rainstorms had caused a high volume of water to flow into the project’s reservoir, putting pressure on the dam.The Secretary-General extended his condolences to the victims’ families and to the Government and people of the Southeast Asian country, while also expressing the UN’s readiness to support the national rescue and relief efforts if required, Mr. Dujarric said. read more

Royal baby Archie first picture and everything we know about Meghan and

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have presented their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world, with Meghan declaring: “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.”Speaking in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle as her husband held their two-day-old child, Meghan added: “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.” As they both laughed, Harry said: “I don’t know who he gets that from.”The 7lb 3oz infant, whose name was released Wednesday afternoon, is believed to be the first mixed-race child born to a senior member of the royal family in centuries, and is a reflection of modern Britain with its culturally diverse population.  Here’s everything we know about the latest royal, from whether Archie will have a title, those birth rumours and reaction from Meghan’s estranged family.  Will Archie have a title?By deciding to call their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the Duke and Duchess have signified they will not use a title for their first born.The baby could have become Earl of Dumbarton – one of Prince Harry’s subsidiary titles – or have been Lord Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, but instead he will simply be Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex present their newborn son to the world The Duke and Duchess of Sussex with their baby son, who was born on Monday morning, during a photocall in St George's Hall at Windsor Castle Kate revealed yesterday they had no clues about the baby’s name but were eager to see the Sussexes and their new arrival.Speaking before the name was announced, she said: “As William said, we’re looking forward to meeting him and finding out what his name’s going to be so it’s really exciting for both of them and we wish them all the best.”These next few weeks are always a bit daunting the first time round so we wish them all the best.”The Prince of Wales has also spoken publicly for the first time about the birth, saying he was “delighted” at arrival of his latest grandchild.Harry’s grandmother the Queen accepted the congratulations of a Windsor Castle guest who asked: “Life is good for Your Majesty?” The Queen, who was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, was hosting a lunch on Tuesday for members of the Order of Merit and smiling said in reply “yes, thank you”.

Asked how he found parenting, Harry added: “It’s great. Parenting is amazing. It’s only been two and a half days, three days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.” Thomas Markle, the duchess’ estranged father, also offered his well-wishes on Monday. Mr Markle, a former TV lighting director, told The Sun: “I am proud that my new grandson is born into the British royal family and I am sure that he will grow up to serve the crown and the people of Britain with grace, dignity, and honour.” How was Archie’s name announced?In a statement posted on Instagram, the couple said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.”This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.” Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is pictured for the first time during a photocall in St George’s Hall at Windsor CastleCredit:Dominic Lipinski/PA Wire He added: “I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.” What have Meghan and Harry said about parenthood so far?Amid surroundings steeped in royal history, Archie made his debut behind closed doors at midday today, with a small press pool of only one reporter, one photographer, three cameramen, as well as the couple’s own private photographer and a household press officer photographer.Meghan and Harry were beside themselves with joy giggling and looking into each others eyes as they spoke. The duke gently cradled his son in his arms – in a white merino wool  shawl made by G H Hurt & Son – and could not resist sneaking a peek down at him as he apparently slept. Asked who the baby takes after, Meghan, who was wearing a white dress, said: “We’re still trying to figure that out.”Harry, wearing a light grey suit, said: “Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks we’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows.” For all the latest royal baby news, including the name as it’s revealed, follow our liveblog. The family of three were pictured in a black and white snap showing off baby Archie to the Queen and Philip, alongside Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.While the bookies had safely predicted the names of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, they were left confounded by the Sussex’s selection. In the days after the baby boy’s birth, they had settled on Alexander, Arthur, James, Philip and Spencer as the most likely options, with their punters preoccupied with how the couple would honour the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Archie means “genuine”, “bold” and “brave”, and is German in origin. Short for Archibald, it is now given as a name in its own right. It was the 18th most popular name for boys in England and Wales in 2017, according to the latest available figures from the Office for National Statistics.Harrison means “son of Harry” so is likely to be a tribute to the duke. Doria Ragland, the duchess’ mother, who was with the couple on Monday and is staying with them, was also overjoyed with the arrival of her first grandchild.Read more: Doria Ragland: meet royal baby Sussex’s American grandma Where was Baby Sussex born?The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kept plans for the birth of their baby private. He was initially believed to have been born in the sanctuary of Frogmore Cottage – the Sussexes’ newly renovated home on the Windsor Estate.However it later emerged that Meghan may have been whisked to a private hospital – thought to have been the Portland in London – without anyone noticing late on Sunday night. The reported move was so secretive – even senior royals were not told.The duke was at his wife’s side during the birth and he later confessed he had only had a few hours’ sleep, suggesting Meghan had spent much of the night in labour. Archie was born at 5.26am on Monday.Read more: Fois gras for mum and a beer for dad: What it’s like to give birth at The Portland read more

CPE Mengdong Energy orders the welltried Tenova TAKRAF SRs 2000 bucketwheel excavator

first_imgTenova TAKRAF has won a turnkey contract for the supply of one SRs2000 bucketwheel excavator  for the coal mine extension operated by the Zhahanaoer branch of the CPE Mengdong Energy Group. The Zhahanaoer coalfield lies at the northwest end of Togliao city in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous District. The open pit mine is situated on a the ridge of the southern part of the Daxing’an mountain range. In this region the tough climate is characterised by temperatures varying from +39°C down to -39°C. The coal mine covers an area of 31.36 km² and holds an estimated coal reserve of 827.93 Mt of lignite extracted at various levels from 85 to 356 m depth. The recently ordered bucketwheel excavator is designed to excavate up to 6,600 m³/h of overburden, which then will be transferred via loading unit to the bench conveyor. Thus, the designed capacity makes the unit the largest such excavator in east Asia. With a boom length of 44 m the bucketwheel excavator will be able to mine a bench height of 30 m and a block width of 50 m. The conveyor bridge connecting the excavator and the discharge module will have an approximate length of 120 m. The commissioning of the equipment is planned for October 2013.This bucket wheel excavator is the 56th machine of this type supplied by Tenova TAKRAF, operating reliably under most adverse climatic conditions. The SRs 2000s supplied by Tenova TAKRAF some 30 years ago to mine hard coal in Ekibastus (Kazakhstan) are still in operation all year round at temperatures even exceeding the levels in Zhahanaoer mine. Some of those excavators in Ekibastus are just under refurbishment, replacing the original bucketwheel drives with the all-new developed extra heavy duty Tenova TAKRAF bucket wheel gear boxes to make them fit for the next decades of operation.Tenova TAKRAF has been selected for this latest based on its long-term relationship with the group, with mining equipment comprising two bucketwheel excavators, the complete belt conveyor system and a spreader, supplied to Yuan Bao Shan some years ago. Other reasons for choosing Tenova TAKRAF were its global reputation as a supplier of bucketwheel excavators and the excellent technical solution of this particular project .last_img read more

ASI starts work on the autonomous truck project at Barricks Arturo JV

first_imgFollowing the earlier news posted by IM on June 6, Autonomous Solutions, Inc (ASI): ASI Mining says it has begun work on the project with Barrick Gold to retrofit and automate a fleet of haul trucks at the company’s Arturo Joint Venture operation in Nevada.“This represents the first major autonomous deployment within the continental United States and signals a larger movement to adopt automation across the mining industry,” said Drew Larsen, Director of Business Development for ASI Mining.During the initial phase of the project ASI will retrofit five Komatsu 930E Ultra Class haul trucks to autonomous operation at the Arturo mine, located on property adjacent to Barrick’s Goldstrike operations. This phase will consist primarily of waste haulage, prior to moving into production. Subsequent phases will follow with potential expansion to additional trucks.“Not only is this agreement with Barrick significant in the ongoing growth of ASI Mining,” said Larsen. “It enables Barrick to embark on its autonomous surface mining strategy in a pragmatic and collaborative manner with a technology partner such as ASI.”ASI’s Mobius Haulage A.I. will be a key component in the implementation and operation of the project. Mobius leverages advanced multi-vehicle command and control software to set up and manage a coordinated system of haul trucks. The Mobius Haulage Platform manages autonomous traffic, coordinates manned or unmanned vehicles and regulates the haul cycle in the most efficient way possible.By employing the Mobius platform at the Arturo mine, Barrick anticipates enhancements across a range of critical performance measurements. “The goal is to use advances in automation technology to help Barrick prove and deliver improvements in safety, efficiency and production,” said Matt Majors, Superintendent of Mining Operations and project manager for autonomous haulage.“Barrick chose ASI as a partner for their ability to provide an agnostic product – agnostic to equipment manufacturer and to mine layout and practices. This offers us greater flexibility and cost savings. Using the ASI kits, we are able to retrofit our existing fleet of haul trucks as well as additional multi-manufacturer equipment which will help us to realise additional savings should we decide to scale the technology in the future,” said Majors.last_img read more

Marcelo Pay me up and I will leave

first_imgReal Madrid left-back Marcelo recently made a stunning revelation about his future suggesting he will leave this summer if the club wants him to.Marcelo, 30, has enjoyed a decorated career with Los Blancos having won 20 trophies including four Champions Leagues over more than a decade at the Bernabeu.But has fallen down the pecking order with coach Santi Solari preferring youth team graduate Sergio Reguilon at left-back.The Brazil international has been regularly linked with a move to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus. And he recently opened up about a possible exit.“If I am on the list of players [Madrid] want to sell, then they can pay me up and all is sorted,” Marcelo said via ESPN.“I trust in myself, in my work, but if a day comes when Real Madrid do not want me, I’ll go. I will be sad, but I’ll go. But I am sure I will not be kicked out.”Rumours are rife Ronaldo is trying to engineer the move to Juve, but Marcelo played down the prospect when asked again about the possibility of a move to Turin.Marcelo on when Cristiano told him he was leaving: “F*ck, we were training for the Champions League Final and he told me, ‘I’m leaving!’ Juve is a spectacular club with a great history but I have a contract with Real Madrid and I love being at this club.” [Esporte Interactivo] pic.twitter.com/7JxrwTtexJGerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…— SB (@Realmadridplace) February 11, 2019“I have seen mock-ups [of me] with the Juventus jersey, and they are a spectacular team,” he said. “But I am at Real Madrid, I have a contract here.”Marcelo has been under scrutiny for his below-par performances at the club, something he attributed to injuries.“The level I have been showing is difficult to always maintain,” he said. “I am a little below that level at the moment, but my career has been like that, some little dips, and unfortunately this season I had three injuries in two months. I went through a difficult period in my football and within the club.“But that phase is over now, I need to play to get back to my usual form and confidence. But I feel good now, physically good, I am training strongly. I need to play to get back my confidence, but physically I am good.”Solari is expected to keep faith with Reguilon for Wednesday’s Champions League round of 16 first leg at Ajax.last_img read more

Vessel at Hudson Yards updates photo policy after online criticism

first_imgHershorn also posted a warning on Reddit, cautioning visitors from posting on social media.  “Heck, if I’m reading that correctly if you walk by and some random stranger snaps a photo of you, that gives the company rights to use your likeness,” one user responded.”I’m not sure of the legality of what they’re saying, but apparently if you post a photo you took of the Vessel … or including the vessel … you give what essentially is potentially every company ever the right to use your name / likeness / whatever for any purpose,” another Redditor wrote.On Monday, a representative for Related, the real estate company that developed Hudson Yards, said: “The intent of the policy is to allow Hudson Yards to amplify and reshare photos already shared on individual social channels through our website and social channels. This is a practice utilized at nearly all major attractions and we wanted to over communicate, be transparent and disclose to all users.

After traveling down the trail in the afternoon sun for a few hours, Zirkle decided to camp with her dog team until afternoon temperatures cooled.

And anyway I just want to talk about it some time, but probably some time after the race, because it’s bringing a lot of negativity into my team. So maybe we can just chat after. I’m not upset with anyone on the river or anything, just one particular person. And there’s bad apples in every bunch, I guess. But I gotta stop thinking about it, because all I do is think about it.

Facebook Apologizes for Outages Says It Has Resolved Server Configuration Error That

first_imgFacebook is “very sorry” for what appeared to be the longest-ever rolling outage of its service: The social media giant apologized for a technical error that left many users globally unable to access apps for Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp starting Wednesday and stretching into Thursday. The company said it has fixed the glitch.About 24 hours after users began reporting problems with Facebook, Instagram and other apps, Facebook announced Thursday — on Twitter — that it had resolved the issues and that its systems are “recovering.”“Yesterday, as a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services. We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering,” the company said in a tweet. “We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience.” Facebook first acknowledged the problems in a tweet Wednesday at 1:49 p.m. ET, then said in a follow-up message that it was able to confirm the outages were not caused by distributed denial-of-service attack, in which networks are overloaded with bogus traffic designed to disrupt service.Problems reported by users included the Facebook and Instagram apps’ not loading content or allowing them to share posts, while some said they were unable to log in. Some were shown a message saying Facebook was down for maintenance.Facebook is considering issuing refunds to advertisers because of the downtime, Bloomberg reported. Outages for large internet platforms like Facebook or YouTube aren’t unusual, but in the past they have typically restored service within an hour or two.Instagram, at around 12:40 a.m. ET Thursday, announced on Twitter (with an Oprah GIF) that service was restored. According to performance-monitoring company Catchpoint, Facebook apps appeared to running normally by around 10:30 p.m. ET Wednesday for users in the U.S. However, users in Asia and Europe reported that they were experiencing issues again early their time on Thursday.The outages occurred as Facebook faces ongoing potential legal and regulatory repercussions after a series of damaging disclosures in the past year involving significant user-privacy breaches and revelations about the company’s questionable business practices.In the latest development, U.S. prosecutors have launched a criminal investigation into Facebook’s data partnerships, and a federal grand jury has subpoenaed records from “at least two prominent makers of smartphones and other devices,” the New York Times reported Wednesday. In a response, Facebook reiterated that it is cooperating with investigators. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

first_imgStay on target Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsSwatting Attack Targets Fortnite World Champion Earlier this week, it was reported that the Android edition of Fortnite would not be available through the Google Play Store. This was discovered inside of the source of the Fortnite mobile page on Epic Games’ website. Within the code are instructions on how to download the game from Epic’s site to one’s Android smartphone. Today, Epic has officially announced that Fortnite for Android will indeed not be available through the Google Play store.According to Epic CEO Tim Sweeney (as reported by The Verge), there are two main reasons why the company decided to not distribute Fortnite through Google’s store. The first reason is that the company wants to maintain a direct connection with its consumers. This part isn’t all that surprising given how Epic distributes the PC version of Fortnite on its Epic Games Launcher and not on Steam.“Epic wants to have a direct relationship with our customers on all platforms where that’s possible,” said Tim Sweeney to The Verge over email. “The great thing about the Internet and the digital revolution is that this is possible, now that physical storefronts and middlemen distributors are no longer required.”The second reason why folks can only get Fortnite from Epic Games is financial. For those who don’t know, Google takes a 30 percent cut from anything sold on its store. “The 30 percent store tax is a high cost in a world where game developers’ 70 percent must cover all the cost of developing, operating, and supporting their games,” said Sweeney. “There’s a rationale for this on console where there’s enormous investment in hardware, often sold below cost, and marketing campaigns in broad partnership with publishers. 30 percent is disproportionate to the cost of the services these stores perform, such as payment processing, download bandwidth, and customer service.” Sweeney went on to say that Epic is “intimately familiar with these costs” from offering Fortnite directly on Mac and PC.It is unclear how all of this will pan out. Android users have to take the extra step of going through Epic to get Fortnite instead of just downloading it right on their phone through Google Play. Even iPhone users do not have to go through this. As stated by The Verge, Apple doesn’t allow its users to download applications which aren’t first approved by its internal review processes and are distributed through its own marketplaces. Fortnite is still a hot commodity, so it’s possible Android users will deal with the added step of going through Epic Games’ site to get it. Epic doesn’t think this will impact the game, but it’s hard to tell at this time.There is no definitive release date for the Android version of Fortnite. If rumors are true, it’s possible it’ll launch around the time the Galaxy Note 9 is released.Keep up to date with everything Fortnite here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Cavusoglu arrives in north to prepare roadmap

first_imgTurkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu arrived in the north on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the next steps for the Cyprus talks with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci and political party leaders.Cavusoglu is to meet Akinci first and later on is to join a working dinner with ‘Prime Minister’ Huseyin Ozgurgun, ‘House speaker’ Sibel Siber, and the heads of the Democratic Party Serdar Denktas, of the Social Democratic Party Cemal Ozyigit, of the Republican Turkish Party Tufan Erhurman and ‘Foreign Minister’ Tahsin Ertugruloglu.No statements are expected following the meeting, it was reported.Cavusoglu, who headed the Turkish delegation at the talks at the inconclusive UN-backed talks in the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana between June 28 and July 7, said prior to his arrival in the north that his visit aimed at preparing a roadmap for the future.The Turkish Foreign Minister said that following the dead-end reached at the talks, for which he blamed the Greek and Greek Cypriot side, that from now on there will be other processes in Cyprus. “This process cannot go on this way forever,” Cavusoglu said.These statements follow those of the Turkish side following the collapse of the talks, that Turkey would seek another way on the Cyprus issue outside the parameters of the UN. Both Cavusoglu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had spoken of a plan B and C for the Cyprus problem.Cavusoglu said on Tuesday in Ankara that the process in Crans-Montana faltered due to the Greek and Greek Cypriot side, and that the latter has been spoiled by the EU as it is being rewarded no matter what it does.“In 2004, they rejected the (UN) Annan Plan in a referendum, their elder brothers rewarded them and immediately took them into the EU. They spoiled them, of course. Whatever they do they find support. It is a tiny (EU) member and it is not only blocking Turkey’s EU membership but they also block many other processes. I mean, it is actually the EU that is encouraging this,” he said.He also said that the Republic of Cyprus’ hydrocarbon search was one-sided.“Greek Cypriots’ unilateral measures here are not right because Turkish Cypriots also have rights on the reserves around the island of Cyprus,” Cavusoglu said.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
