Greek Prime Minister refers to the Cyprus problem
The Prime Minister of Greece, Mr Alexis Tsipras, addressing yesterday, 1 October 2015, the UN General Assembly, made special reference to the Cyprus problem and the efforts of the leaders of the two communities to reach a mutually acceptable solution to the problem.
Prime Minister Tsipras said that it is shameful that Cyprus remains divided for the last 41 years, stressing, at the same time that: “Today, more than ever and in light of the instability in our region, it is important that the momentum is grasped for a mutually acceptable, just, viable and comprehensive solution to the Cyprus issue, based on the relevant UN Resolutions and on Cyprus’ membership of the European Union.
To the benefit of all the people of Cyprus, Greek and Turkish Cypriots, as well as all other communities.
In this context, I would like to underline Greece’s full support to the intercommunal talks, held under the leadership of President Anastasiades and the head of the Turkish Cypriot community, Mr Akinci. -02.10.2015
