Rabat – Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has reportedly left the club.The move comes six weeks after criticism from club’s manager Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese criticized Carneiro after she rushed to the aid of Belgian international Eden Hazard in the 2-2 draw against Swansea at Stamford Bridge on August 8.According to British media reports, Carneiro was asked to return to work last Friday, but she has decided not to show and is now considering legal action against the London-based club. Mourinho’s reaction at the time is the subject of an FA inquiry. He is being accused of using abusive or sexist language towards Carneiro.A member of the public has alleged that the former Real Madrid manager shouted ‘filha da puta’ towards the Gibraltar-born doctor, something that means daughter of a whore.Heather Rabbatts, chair of the FA’s Inclusion Advisory Board and FA’s only female board member, expressed her “sadness and anger” at the news of Carneiro’s departure.“Her departure raises a serious question on how players are safeguarded if their medical support is compromised,” said Rabbatts.“I hope that Eva’s own situation can be resolved quickly and positively and that she will be able to continue to work in a senior position within the game.”© Morocco World News.

Rabat – Libya has officially announced its decision to back Morocco’s 2026 World Cup bid in the countdown to Wednesday’s poll to choose the 2026 host.President of the Libyan Football Federation Jamal Al-Jaafari will represent Libya during the FIFA vote.To date, more than 17 countries have pledged support for Morocco 2026, including France, Botswana, Qatar, Russia and Serbia. On June 10, CGTN aired a video of a press report showcasing the African nations which “ignored” US President Donald Trump’s threat to the countries that vote for Morocco 2026.The press report interviewed the presidents of the football associations of Niger, Uganda, and Kenya.All chairmen of the football federations mentioned in the report agreed on one point: supporting the Moroccan bid for Africa, according to Libya Observer.“When an African country is competing [against] another country from another continent, it becomes self-evident that African nations will support this destination. Niger is very interested in Morocco’s bid, ” said Issa Yanfore, Deputy Secretary-General of Nigerien Football Federation.Morocco’s bid is a “bid from Africa,” he said.Moses Magogo, President of Uganda’s Football Association also commended Morocco’s bid, emphasizing that Morocco has the ability to host the tournament. He said of Morocco “they speak football.”“The King loves and respect football. I believe that they have the capacities and I believe that they will put up a World Cup better than South Africa.”However, Uganda has not yet supported the Moroccan bid officially. Mogogo told Uganda Radio in May that he “personally” support the Moroccan bid, but he is not the sole decision maker, saying the federation will meet “as an executive and make the final decision on who to vote for.”Mogogo added that he believes the continent is ready to host the second African World Cup after South Africa hosted in 2010.President of the Football Kenya Federation Nick Mwendwa said “why not” have a World Cup “in Africa.” In response to Trump’s threatening message, Lamin Kaba Bajo, President of the Gambia Football Federation,  said: “We are not scared to say that we are fully behind the Moroccan bid.” read more

In Gaza as a whole, “Israeli demolitions have left almost 12,700 homeless,” but funding shortages and difficulties sourcing land and transporting building materials meant that UNRWA has only been able to open only 228 replacement shelters, with another 250 in the pipeline, UNRWA said in a news release.”The Agency estimates that it will cost over $46 million to re-house all the Palestinian refugees who have lost their homes to date – and every day more become homeless,” it said.More than 60 per cent of the refugees are living on $2 a day, or less, while chronic and acute malnutrition among children reached 25 per cent in some areas. UNWRA is feeding more than 1 million refugees in Gaza and the West Bank, but the Agency has had to halve its food distribution.In the first half of 2002, cash assistance to the very poorest people was cut to $950,000 from $3.4 million in the Gaza Strip and to $2,600 from $3.3 million in the West Bank, the Agency said.”This has meant that the large number of destitute families were not given assistance for basic needs, such as fuel for cooking, or replacement household items for those families whose shelters were destroyed,” UNRWA said. read more

ECSO Press ReleaseEmery County Sheriff’s Office (ESCO) personnel rescued two Cedar City scout groups from an ill-fated canoeing adventure on the Green River Tuesday afternoon. While on patrol in Green River, Sgt. Mitch Vetere received a call from a relative stating that a distraught young man had shown up at a farm needing assistance. Sgt. Vetere responded to the farm and spoke with the young man who stated that his canoe had sunk and floated down the river. He said there were over 20 scouts and leaders in his group, most of them in homemade canoes.Sgt. Vetere hooked onto an ECSO boat staged in Green River and headed to the Green River State Park boat ramp with the young man. When they got to the ramp, one of the scout leaders was there. The leader had sunk his canoe after traveling only a couple hundred yards but was able to self-rescue and make his way back to the boat ramp. A gentleman that lives down river then pulled up with three more scouts and a leader who had aborted their trip after too many canoe problems.At that time, Sgt. Mitch Vetere, Deputy Jeff Newland and Deputy Dylan Keele launched a rescue boat and headed down river in an attempt to locate the other scouts and leaders. Two scout leaders accompanied them. The ECSO boat crew located one scout clinging to a tree about one mile downstream. They were able to coax him to let go and float to the boat using his life jacket. The ECSO boat continued downstream where they located the rest of the scouts and leaders. The ECSO was able to offload the remaining canoes, which were bogged down with gear, and stayed in the area until all made it safely to the shore at Crystal Geyser where they could be picked up by vehicle.The scout groups had planned to canoe from Green River State Park to Mineral Bottoms over the next few days, a distance of 67 river miles. Their trip ended only four miles from the boat ramp. Sgt. Vetere, who has spent a lot of time on the river over the years, stated that homemade canoes of this type have no business being on the river, especially with the river currently running at 13,000 cfs. He stated that current river conditions are even a little high for commercial canoes with experienced canoers. These canoes were made with PVC pipe and wrapped with a plastic tarp material.Sheriff Greg Funk wants to emphasize that if you are going to be on the rivers in Emery County, do your research, know your limitations and be prepared. He stated, “We have had numerous river rescues over the years, on the Green, the San Rafael and the Muddy. It is fortunate that the canoe problems happened early in this trip where there is access to the river from the banks, rather than farther downstream with sheer canyon walls. The Green River is wide, the water is cold and hypothermia can set in in a matter of minutes.”Another plus is that ECSO rescue boats had recently been serviced after sitting through the winter, and were used in a to-day river rescue exercise just last month.Total rescue time was three hours and all were accounted for. read more

first_imgUpdated 2.45pmTHE EUROPEAN UNION and Washington have sanctioned top Russians and Ukrainians deemed responsible for a breakaway vote in Crimea that has fanned the worst East-West standoff since the Cold War.Official results from Sunday’s disputed referendum showed 96.77 per cent of voters in the mostly Russian-speaking region of Ukraine had opted for Kremlin rule in what would be the most radical redrawing of the map of Europe since Kosovo’s 2008 declaration of independence from Serbia.Crimea’s lawmakers have today formally asked to join Russia and vowed to disband Ukrainian military units stationed across the region — a move that threatens to inflame the raging security crisis on the European Union’s eastern frontier. The head of Crimea’s Russia-backed leader Sergei Aksyonov gestures in Lenin Square in Ukraine last night (Pic: AP Photo/Max Vetrov)The joint response from the European Union and Washington was both swift and tough.EU foreign ministers unveiled travel bans and asset freezes against 13 Russian officials and eight Ukrainian officials from Crimea, but did not identify them.Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius tweeted that there would be “more EU measures in (a) few days”.(@LinkeviciusL/Twitter) The group was officially targeted “for undermining the sovereignty of Ukraine”. Crimea has been under effective control of Russian troops and pro-Kremlin militia since the start of the month.ReprisalThe EU’s punitive measures were followed minutes later by a White House announcement that the United States was imposing financial sanctions on seven top Russian government officials and lawmakers in reprisal for the Kremlin’s incursion.The White House said Ukraine’s ousted pro-Kremlin president Viktor Yanukovych, a former top adviser and two “separatist” officials in Crimea would also face punitive steps.Pro-Russian people celebrate in Lenin Square in Ukraine last night. (AP Photo/Ivan Sekretarev) Russian media said others on the US list included upper house of parliament speaker Valentina Matviyenko and Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin — responsible for overseeing Russia’s military and industrial sector.The Western allies have tried to put up a united front against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s blunt attempts to stamp his authority on post-Soviet regions he views as part of Moscow’s historic domain.‘Illegal’ referendumThe White House said US President Barack Obama warned Putin on Sunday that “in coordination with our European partners, we are prepared to impose additional costs on Russia for its actions.”Pro-Russian demonstrators crowd around Ukrainian police during a rally earlier today. (AP Photo/Andrey Basevich) Diplomats in Brussels also said EU and Ukrainian leaders would on Friday sign the political portion of an Association Agreement whose rejection by the old pro-Kremlin team in November sparked the first wave of Kiev protests.Most of the international community has rejected the Crimea referendum as illegal because Russia had vowed to respect its neighbour’s territorial integrity under a 1994 agreement that saw Ukraine renounce its Soviet-era nuclear arms.But the government in Crimea followed up with a series of measures to sever ties with Kiev — including seizing Ukrainian institutions and even plans to push the peninsula two hours forward and put it on Moscow time.TroopsUkraine’s interim president Oleksandr Turchynov denounced the vote as a “great farce” and watched from a podium as agitated lawmakers approved a partial mobilisation of the army aimed at countering Russian troops’ effective seizure of Crimea at the beginning of March.A pro-Russian solider stands outside a Ukrainian military base earlier today. (AP Photo/Vadim Ghirda) The ex-Soviet nation’s acting defence minister Igor Tenyukh also told reporters that the “troops deployed (in Crimea) will stay there”.Putin has signalled he has no intention of turning back on what he describes as his defence of ethnic Russians who — according to Moscow — have come under increasing attack from Ukrainian ultra-nationalists since last month’s ouster of Yanukovych by a far more nationalist but Western-leaning team.Special addressThe Kremlin said Putin “emphasised” to Obama that the referendum “was fully in line with the norms of international law and the UN charter”.Foreign ministers Urmas Paet of Estonia, William Hague of Britain, and Laurent Fabius of France, during the EU foreign ministers council in Brussels today. (AP Photo/Yves Logghe) It said Putin pointed out “the well-known precedent of Kosovo” — a mostly Muslim region of former Soviet ally Yugoslavia whose independence is backed by Washington but not recognised by the Kremlin.Putin on Tuesday will make a special address on the crisis that will be attended by lawmakers from Russia’s two houses of parliament. Crimea’s self-declared leader Sergiy Aksyonov also said he was flying to Moscow Monday for talks.Russia’s lower house of parliament is expected to debate legislation on Friday simplifying the process under which the Kremlin can annex another part of a sovereign state.Assets seizedThe overwhelming margin of victory for the pro-Kremlin camp underscores the mistrust the heavily Russified southeast of Ukraine shares for the European leanings of those who rose to power on the back of three months of deadly protests in Kiev.Pro-Ukrainian activists outside the EU Council meeting in Brussels today. (AP Photo/Gert Vanden Wjingaert) But not everyone in Crimea was happy with the result.Some ethnic Ukrainians expressed bewilderment at a referendum that presented them with only two choices: join Russia or go back to a 1992 constitution under which Crimea became a de facto sovereign state.The status quo or better terms with Kiev were not options — a reality that along with the massive presence of Russian troops across the region prompted British Foreign Secretary William Hague to call the vote a “mockery” of democracy.EconomicsOne of the greatest uncertainties hanging over Crimea itself is how the economically devastated region that relies on Kiev for everything from energy to water can survive in the span it would take to formally be accepted as a part of Russia.Volunteers line up outside the parliament building in Kiev today. (AP Photo/David Azia) Crimea’s self-declared leader Aksyonov tweeted that the region had received a 15-billion-ruble ($410-million, 295-million-euro) aid package from Moscow.Crimean lawmakers also claimed rights to the pipelines as well as offshore oil and natural gas platforms of Ukraine’s state-owned Chornomorneftegaz and Ukrtransgaz energy firms.Russia’s finance ministry meanwhile suggested turning Crimea into a temporary low-tax zone aimed at helping the region deal with the transition.But more nationalist voices in Ukraine are calling on Kiev authorities to cut off Crimea from basic supplies in effort to get its leaders to reverse course.- Additional reporting by Christine BohanOriginally published 7.21amRead: 93 per cent of Crimeans want to re-join Russia: exit polls > Read: Ukraine and Russia agree a ‘temporary Crimea truce >last_img read more

first_imgDes plongeurs amateurs capturent des images impressionnantes de requins : découvrez leurs clichésMonde – Le requin est injustement l’une des espèces animales les plus craintes par l’Homme. Cependant, certains plongeurs n’hésitent pas à l’approcher pour l’immortaliser sur des clichés souvent impressionnants. Parmi les espèces que Maxisciences vous propose de découvrir en images, le requin à pointes noires, caractérisé comme son nom l’indique par ses nageoires aux extrémités noires. Il s’agit d’une espèce de requin vivant près des côtes, notamment d’Afrique de l’est, du sud de l’Asie et de l’Océanie ainsi que dans l’océan Pacifique. Il ne présente pas de réel danger pour l’Homme et mesure en général 1,50 à 1,80 mètre.Le requin-marteau, lui, se reconnaît facilement par sa tête en forme de marteau, laquelle lui donne une meilleure vision. Il existe neuf espèces de ces requins, réparties un peu partout dans les océans du globe. Le requin longimane (également appelé requin océanique, aileron blanc du large ou requin pointes blanches du large) est un très gros requin pouvant atteindre une taille de 3,95 mètres. Cette taille fait de lui un animal qui peut être dangereux pour l’Homme, mais il s’approche très rarement des côtes. Il vit en pleine mer, dans toute la ceinture tropicale.Le requin soyeux est un grand requin allongé qui mesure en général plus de 2 mètres et peut atteindre 3,40 mètres. Il est doté d’un long museau et d’une bande blanche sur les flancs. Il s’agit d’une espèce potentiellement dangereuse pour l’Homme, à cause de sa taille et de son abondance. Il exécute une nage d’intimidation lorsqu’il est approché par un plongeur. Aucune attaque sur l’Homme n’a encore été recensée de la part de cette espèce.Pour découvrir les images : https://www.maxisciences.com/requin/des-cliches-de-requins-impressionnants-pris-par-des-plongeurs-amateurs_art7718.htmlLe 13 juin 2010 à 13:08 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgPeople shout slogans during a protest against what they say is the draft list of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the northeastern state of Assam, in Kolkata, India, 30 August 2018. Photo: ReutersNimai Hajong remembers almost nothing of the hills of eastern Bangladesh where he was born more than half a century ago, having fled as a small child to India where he has lived as a refugee ever since.The 58-year-old has been declared a foreigner — one of four million people effectively stripped of citizenship by the government of the northeastern state of Assam.Their names have been left off a draft list of citizens published late July that rights groups say threatens to render millions stateless if they cannot prove they are Indian.The controversial registry includes only those able to show they were in Assam before 1971, when millions fled to the state to escape Bangladesh’s war of independence, and their descendants.However, many whose families arrived before 1971 say authorities have rejected their papers and left them off the list.Critics say it is the latest move by the right-wing government of prime minister Narendra Modi to bolster India’s Hindu majority at the expense of minorities. India will hold a national election next year.Many of those left off the list are Muslims, but those of other minorities and faiths — including Hindus — have also missed out.Assam, where one third of the population is Muslim, has for decades been wracked by tensions over migrants and is the only Indian state to compile such a register.Just over four million of the total Assam population of more than 30 million people who applied to be on the list were excluded from the draft, according to the registrar general of India.State officials say no “genuine” Indians need to worry about being left off the list, and there are avenues for appeal.But for Nimai — who fled persecution in Bangladesh as a five-year-old on his mother’s back — his world has been upended once more.- ‘Where do we go now?’ -His family are Hajong, a Hindu indigenous people from the Chittagong Hill Tracts bordering India and Myanmar, a region wracked by decades of ethnic conflict.They were shocked to discover their names left off after submitting the same paperwork to authorities that had allowed them to remain in India for more than 50 years.”What do we do now? We have accepted this land as our home since 1964, and we have nowhere to go,” Hajong told AFP in the small settlement of Bamunigaon, roughly 30 kilometres (19 miles) from Assam’s capital Guwahati.”We have lived here all these years as refugees, but I want to die an Indian.”The list will not be finalised until December, and state and federal governments have sought to allay concerns about the process.But that has done little to ease the anxiety of those excluded from the draft, who fear a life of limbo — or even deportation to Bangladesh.”I was told there was a massacre there, forcing my parents to flee with others from their village,” said Gunamoni Dalu, a Hajong woman whose family fled Bangladesh half a century ago to India.She was born in India in 1968, but was left off the list.”Since the death of my father, I have lived alone here,” she said, fretting about her future.News of the draft register sparked opposition protests in the national parliament and outrage in Assam, where the state government brought in 25,000 extra security forces in case of trouble.Assam, known for its lush tea estates and cool hill climate, has witnessed terrible violence between indigenous tribes and settlers.About 2,000 suspected migrants were butchered in a single day in Nellie in 1983. Nearly all were Muslim, and many were children.- Local tensions -Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party won control of Assam in 2016 after promising to expel illegal immigrants and protect the rights of indigenous groups.Millions fled Bangladesh during its 1971 war of independence from Pakistan, but waves of refugees including the Hajong and the Buddhist Chakma had also escaped persecution to come to India before that.Many settled in Assam, which shares a long border with Bangladesh.Migrants have since been accused of illegally entering the state and taking land and jobs, causing tensions with locals.Rights groups have compared deletion from the citizenship list to Myanmar’s removal of rights and protections for its Rohingya community in 1982.Robin Koch had hoped the process “would have sealed our Indian identity once and for all”.”Instead, I don’t know what went wrong. I can’t eat and sleep at night,” said the 55-year-old Hajong man, whose family crossed the border in 1964.”After our parents escaped… we lost all links with our clan. We have no one there now.”last_img read more

first_imgFacts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are clear: African Americans make up 44 percent of new HIV/AIDS infections in a country in which only 12 percent of the population is Black. Of the approximately 8,000 new infections among women in 2014, six in 10 were Black women.Organizations and agencies nationwide are now targeting African American women for daily regimens of pre-exposure prophylaxis, also known as PrEP and distributed under the trade name Truvada. The drug was approved by the FDA in 2012, and studies have shown that taking PrEP before engaging in risky sexual behavior can cut the possibility of transmission of HIV/AIDS by more than 90 percent.“Historically, we’ve been focusing on men who have sex with men. No one focused on women- and certainly not Black women,” said Linda Blount, president and CEO of the Black Women’s Health Imperative. “We can absolutely prevent HIV. The message to women is that PrEP is available! No one has to know. You can take the pill and take control of your own sexual health to protect yourself and your families.”Blount’s group seeks to impact public policy and access to care for Black women through advocacy efforts and research across the country. Blount said the issues surrounding new HIV/AIDS infections reach well beyond access to PrEP, which is available through various private, public, and community health insurance agencies.“There are zip codes in Baltimore and Atlanta where roughly 40 percent of the men are incarcerated,” Blount told the AFRO. “When you subtract 30-40 percent of men from a population, you have a group of heterosexual women with fewer heterosexual partners. If you’re a low income Black woman, you’re really going to stay in your community. If HIV is present, [the risk of] contracting the virus increases dramatically as you are exposed and re-exposed to the same social risk.”Organizations such as The MAC AIDS Fund are now funding programs specifically aimed at getting more PrEP information and prescriptions in the hands of Black women before they engage in unprotected sex.According to Gilead Sciences, Inc., the company that developed Truvada, the drug is a combination of two antiretroviral drugs that keep HIV-1 from replicating in new cells. The drug has long been used in HIV-positive patients, but in recent years health authorities have stressed the benefits of Truvada when taken prior to exposure to HIV-infected blood, breast milk, or semen.last_img read more

The open position rate (job openings as a percent of total employment) was 2.1 percent.February 2017 data shows that home builder and remodeler employment grew by 18,900.

This number is divided between 767,000 builders and 1.94 million residential specialty trade contractors.

Layoffs stayed steady, at 2.7 percent, in a range set last fall.

Unemployment in this sector has declined since February 2010, when the unemployment reached its peak rate of 22 percent, and leveled off in the 6 to 10 percent range in 2016. center_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination Sharelast_img read more

first_imgThe Greek Cypriot side stands ready to negotiate a solution within the parameters set by the UN Secretary-General, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Monday in his first detailed statements following the collapse of the talks on Friday in Crans-Montana Switzerland.During a televised news conference, he said the Greek Cypriot side would agree to negotiate if the Treaty of Guarantee and the Treaty of Alliance were terminated from the first day, along with the right of intervention, if an effective mechanism was found for implementing and monitoring the solution based on the comprehensive proposal that the Greek Cypriot side has tabled, and if a timetable for full withdrawal of Turkish troops is agreed.“What I want to make absolutely clear … (is that) the Greek Cypriot side is ready to negotiate a solution within the parameters set by the United Nations Secretary General,” he said.Anastasiades said the government, through its diplomatic officers in a number of countries in the coming days would be talking to the UN, the EU, Greece, and the National Council at home to chart the next steps.He said the conference in Crans-Montana, had been closed by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres but not the talks process as a whole. “The intention of the Secretary-General was not to blame either side,” he said. Guterres did say the UN would facilitate a new initiative if the two sides wished.“I want to say that I had many times warned that cultivating a very optimistic feeling was not for the best. I also warned on  October 6 that we were not adequately prepared to discuss territorial and guarantee issues thus we would create false expectations to the people and that would have a negative impact on the negotiations,” Anastasiades said.Anastasiades said reports after the collapse that Turkey had been ready to give up its guarantee was not true and he also made reference to “malicious messages” that blamed the Greek Cypriot side for the failure.He said he did not accept that any damage had been done to the Greek Cypriot side as its positions had been consistent and within the UN framework throughout.He also said Turkish Cypriots must decide if they want to be part of a future Cyprus, or part of Turkey, with whom he said it was time to cut the umbilical cord.“I want to reiterate that our goal and purpose through the proposals we have put forward is the creation of a truly independent and sovereign state, free from any third country dependency,” he said. “I want to tell Greek and Turkish Cypriots that we should unite and look at the prospects of independence, of true independence and integrity of the Republic of Cyprus as an EU member state which ensures the rights of all,”He also said wanted to lay out the full facts of what happened in Crans-Montana.At the conference, the Turkish Foreign Minister presented the Turkish proposal, which Anastasiades said provided that the Treaty of Guarantee remain in force and be extended to the constituent states separately and that the Treaty of Alliance would continue to exist without the three-member stationing of troops.Turkey also proposed its troops numbers be significantly withdrawn and then reduced to an agreed number, that implementation of the solution would be supervised by a committee bringing together a representative from Turkey, Britain and Greece, a Greek Cypriot and a Turkish Cypriot by the federal government one each from the constituent states, and a representative of the UN but excluding the EU.“As was expected, both we and the Greek foreign Minister rejected the Turkish proposal,” said Anastasiades.He said European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans, who was in Crans-Montana noted that the EU had a lot to contribute and could play a role in the security of an EU member state.Anastasaides said, then, the UN invited the parties to answer three basic questions related to security and guarantees and he submitted answers in full while Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot side “limited themselves to repeating their positions”.On June 30, during the first arrival of the UN Secretary-General, he said the parameters for the negotiations, which included a new security system and not a continuation of the old one, plus an end to unilateral rights of intervention, and an end to the Treaty of Guarantee. “Current guarantors are not able to implement and supervise themselves in the implementation of the solution,” Anastasiades said quoting from the parameters’ document.As far as troops were concerned, there should be, according to the UN document, a drastic reduction of troops from the first day and then a reduction to 1960 levels while agreeing the timetable for withdrawal and surveillance mechanisms.Regarding the termination (sunset) clause for troops against the review clause, this was to be discussed with the participation of the prime ministers of the three guarantor powers.The remainder of the previously-published UN document focused on territory, property rights, power sharing and the treatment of Turkish nationals.“As a result of the refusal of the Turkish side to negotiate within the parameters set by the Secretary-General and in view of a looming stalemate, I took the initiative and on July 5, under specific terms and conditions, I submitted proposals countering the concerns of Turkish Cypriots, without ignoring the sensitivities of the Greek Cypriot side,” said Anastasiades.He added however that none of those proposals would apply if the guarantees and unilateral right of intervention were no terminated, if there was no withdrawal of troops with a specific timetable and if the legitimate demands of the Greek Cypriot side on territorial adjustments were not met, the president said.“The proposals received positive response from the participants, except, of course, Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots,” he added.Anastasiades said that when the UNSG arrived back in Crans-Montana on July 6, the Turkish side let it be understood that it would display flexibility within the parameters established regarding the intervention rights and the abolition of guarantees.“In long discussions that followed during dinner and in contrast to the impression that the Turkish side gave to the Secretary-General, [Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut] Cavusoglu stubbornly refused to reveal the Turkish positions, claiming they were known to the Secretary-General,” Anastasiades said.He said then, “with a deadlock looming”, the Secretary-General took the initiative to propose a brief statement of generally-accepted positions on security and guarantees as well as on some other chapters where he considered it possible to reach consensus.When he himself repeated the same question to Cavusoglu as the Greek foreign minister had, as to whether the termination of the guarantees and right of intervention would apply from the first day, he said the Turkish foreign minister’s evasiveness had revealed that Turkey’s position remained unchanged.These were that the guarantees and intervention rights should be maintained with a review clause of 15 years, while the issue of troop, “the absolute position of Turkey was that the number agreed would remain permanently in Cyprus”.Anastasiades said the Secretary-General “to avoid exacerbating the crisis, assumed the burden of responsibility” stating that there had been a misconception from his consultations with the Turkish foreign minister. In addition, he added the Turkish side was only proposing to return part of Morphou.Responding to a question regarding the optimism created by the United Nations and other circles about the outcome of efforts and asked to comment on Akel statements that an impression had been given that the president could have done more than what he did at the conference, Anastasiades said he would not comment but respected the right of political leaders to make statements.  You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
