    [02] Cyprus - Greece - Defence Ministers - Press Conference

    Nicosia, Oct 1 (CNA) -- Greek National Defence Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos has stressed the need for collective and concerted action on the part of the international community to deal with the newly emerged situation, following the terrorist attacks in the US, and called on the international community to turn its attention to pending disputes with a view to finding a settlement.

    Speaking at a joint press conference with his Cypriot counterpart Sokratis Hasikos, the Greek minister said Greece insists on finding a "common road of convergence" with Turkey, which has to prove with deeds if it really wishes to adjust its policies and walk along this path with Greece.

    The minister said that today's military parade to mark 41 years since the independence of the Republic of Cyprus is a reminder that Cyprus honours its dead heroes, it reiterates the country's resolve to work for freedom and enjoyment of human rights by all Cypriots and it also reaffirms that the Republic's armed forces can defend the nation.

    In his comments to the press, Hasikos said Cyprus is suffering the repercussions of international terrorism in the continuing Turkish occupation of 37 per cent of its territory and stressed that peace talks is the only way to solve the Cyprus question.

    "The international community demands a collective response to terrorism, we see a big change in the world as we have known it to-date, we have to uproot once and for all terrorism," he said, calling on the international community to deal with hot-beds of "crisis and instability" with a view to reduce the risk for world security.

    There is an obligation to implement the principles of law and order the international community abides by with consistency, in areas where these values do not apply, he said, noting that Cyprus, because of the continuing Turkish occupation, is "a classic example" where law and order must be restored.
