Nicosia, May 11 - The Executive Committee of the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on port state control (Paris MOU) has decided that Cyprus must be removed from the Grey to the White List of the Memorandum.

The Committee recognized the significant improvement Cyprus has achieved concerning the security standards of the Cyprus fleet and the drastic reduction of detentions of Cyprus ships, according to a press release.

It also said that the Committee has decided that Cyprus will be from now on a regular member of the Paris MOU.

''This fact consists an independent evidence and supports even more the picture of Cyprus as a serious and reliable navigational country,'' the press release added.
