In today’s episode, President Nicos Anastasiades has told the 26th UN Climate Conference (COP26) in Glasgow that more than €500 million will be allocated by the Cyprus government by 2026 for policies to tackle climate change. In covid-related news, Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantelas said the stepping up of measures against the coronavirus is not on the cards right now, though concerns have been voiced over the recent uptick in infections and a possible link to the Delta plus variant. In other news, “Halloumi is not the means to achieve political goals,” a state official said yesterday after reports that Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar tried to get the European Commission to appoint a competent authority in the north for the certification of Turkish Cypriot producers.
