European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker

The European Commission has placed the `Task Force for the Turkish Cypriot Community` under the direct management of Commission President Jean Claude Juncker and Vice-President Dombrovskis.

“Today the European Commission decided to transfer the `Task Force for the Turkish Cypriot Community`, the Commission`s team in charge of the application of the EU Aid Programme for the Turkish Cypriot Community and of assisting the Turkish Cypriot to prepare for the reunification of Cyprus, to the Secretariat General`s Structural Reform Support Service (SRSS) which will coordinate all the Commission`s efforts in facilitating the process for the reunification of Cyprus,” an announcement said.

The decision takes effect immediately and “underlines the Commission`s readiness to continue supporting actively the process at all levels”, it added.

The `Task Force for the Turkish Cypriot Community` was set up in 2004 and was part, as from 2014, of Directorate-General for Regional Policy. (CNA)
