The President of the House receives the Vice-President of the German Bundestag

The President of the House of Representatives, Mr Yiannakis L. Omirou, received today the Vice-President of the German Bundestag, Mr Johannes Singhammer, who is paying a working visit to Cyprus. Mr Singhammer was accompanied by the Ambassador of Germany to Nicosia, Mr Nikolai von Schoepff, and by high-ranking officials of the German Bundestag and the Embassy of the country. Mr Omirou praised the very good relations between the Parliaments of the two countries, expressing the wish for their further reinforcement, particularly through the exchange of visits. Referring to the latest developments in the Cyprus problem, the President of the House criticized Turkey’s provocative stance vis-à-vis the Republic of Cyprus, concerning Cyprus’ sovereign rights within its Exclusive Economic Zone. Mr Omirou reminded that the Cyprus problem is a problem of invasion and occupation, noting that the recurrent efforts to reach a just settlement, through talks, were not successful due to the fixed Turkish intransigence. - 31.10.2014
