Cyprus will be assuming the Presidency of the Council of the EU for the first time during the second half of 2012. Holding the rotating Presidency is consubstantialto membership; it is a responsibility and a right of every Member State. Cyprus aims for a successful and results oriented Presidency, proving that it is a reliable and responsible member state, which can add value to the process of European integration. Thus, this experience is an important milestone for the Republic, as it is an opportunity to contribute in achieving the visions and objectives of the Union and highlight Cyprus’ role in the EU and enhance its image and credibility.
