Cyprus funding, budget, natural gas, EC and Turkey on agenda of EP plenary

The plenary session of the European Parliament, that convenes this week in Strasbourg, is expected to vote on prolonging top-up in EU funding for projects in Cyprus.

The members of the European Parliament are expected to vote on Tuesday on a special provision whereby the EU would pay up to 85% of project costs in Cyprus until the closure of the 2014-2020 programmes.

They will also vote on plans to prolong a 10% increase in the EU contribution towards project costs in Greece until 30 June of the year following the end of its economic adjustment programme.
