President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades said Thursday that efforts of the government to remove the illegal restrictions imposed by Turkey on Cyprus flag ships, would be intensifying, pointing out that the Turkish embargo was a clear violation of international law.
President Anastasiades was addressing the 30th Annual General Meeting of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, held in Limassol, in the presence of the President of the House, the President of the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the Vice President of the Union of European Shipowners.
The President said that Cyprus is proud of its shipping industry that has played a decisive role in the steady recovery of the economy, acting not only as a gateway for foreign investment but also as an export destination of ship management services.
