Televised Easter Message by the President of the Republic Mr Nicos Anastasiades
The President of the Republic, Mr Nicos Anastasiades, in his televised Easter Message to the people of Cyprus, on the 19th of April, expressed the hope that the Resurrection of Christ will mark the beginning of the end of the great hardships that Cyprus is facing, while expressing confidence that the people of Cyprus will manage to overcome the economic problems in spite of the great difficulties ahead.
“The message of Resurrection," the President added, “fills us with feelings of optimism and expectation, and strengthens our faith in the struggle for the salvation of Cypriot Hellenism” from Turkey’s military occupation, “and for the termination of the economic crisis that our country is experiencing.”
Our thoughts, the President continued, “are with our missing persons and their relatives, our people that remain enclaved (in occupied Cyprus) and with our refugees. All those who are waiting with perseverance and who look forward to the resurrection of our homeland; a resurrection that will herald the reunification of our homeland and the restoration of the human rights of our people.”
