Written statement by the Deputy Government Spokesman Mr Viktoras Papadopoulos

The Government welcomes the action by Standard and Poor’s to revise the outlook of the Cyprus economy to positive, reflecting their assessment of the improvement of the public finances of our country. It is important for the outlook of the Cypriot economy to be rated as positive by the particularly strict Rating Agencies that are also important for the international markets. It is the duty of all of us not only to safeguard this positive outlook but also to strengthen it, collectively and responsibly.-28.03.2015




Statement by the Government Spokesman, Mr. N. Christodoulides, at the Security Council Open Debate “The victims of attacks and abuses on ethnic or religious ground in the Middle East” - UN Headquarters, 27 March 2015

Mr. President, At the outset, I wish to congratulate France for its timely initiative to organize this open debate focusing on the open wound of “attacks and abuses on ethnic or religious ground in the Middle East.” Cyprus aligns itself with the statement delivered by the European Union, and would like to add the following from a national angle. Around a century ago, poet Constantine Cavafy, who lived in Alexandria Egypt, in his poem “Going Back Home for Greece” wrote of: “Our seas, the waters of Cyprus, Syria, and Egypt, the beloved waters of our home countries” And went on to say that “We must not be ashamed of the Syrian and Egyptian blood in our veins; we should really honor it, take pride in it”-28.03.2015

Remarks by the President of the Republic

Remarks by the President of the RepublicThe reasons, for which the talks on the Cyprus problem have been suspended, have not vanished and any announcement for their resumption depends on Turkey’s response to restore the situation, as it existed before the violation of the international law and the sovereign rights of Cyprus, the President of the Republic, Mr Nicos Anastasiades, said today. In his remarks to reporters, on the sidelines of the celebrations for the anniversary of the Independence of the Hellenic Republic, in response to a question whether the reasons, for which the talks on the Cyprus problem have been suspended, do not exist anymore, the President said that “the reasons have not vanished. The [Turkish] Navtex is still in force, the [Turkish vessel] Barbaros is still within the territorial waters of the Republic of Cyprus and, therefore, if and whether any resumption of the dialogue will be announced, this will depend on the response of the Turkish side to restore the situation, as it was before the violation of the international law and the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus.” With regard to the Greek national anniversary of the 25th of March, President Anastasiades noted that the main messages of the day are those of unity and struggle, adding that the grandeur of the celebration of Greek Independence Day in Cyprus demonstrates that the brotherly bonds Greece and Cyprus share are enduring and inseparable and consequently, lay out a common course to follow for the future as well. - 25.03.2015
