    Cyprus President wishes 2004 ends artificial division of island

    Nicosia, Dec 31, (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos expressed the wish that the New Year will see the end of the ''anachronistic and artificial division of Cyprus''.

    In a televised message to the people of Cyprus for the New Year, President Papadopoulos said that 2004 would be a year of serious challenges and important opportunities.

    He reassured that he would not spare himself of any hard work or efforts to achieve the goal of reaching a solution to the Cyprus issue.

    President Papadopoulos also conveyed to the ''Turkish Cypriot compatriots a message of friendship, appreciation'' and expressed hope that the New Year will allow them to share with the Greek Cypriots the benefits and advantages stemming from the accession of a reunified Cyprus to the EU.

    ''Already in my letter to the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, I have reconfirmed the steadfast and irrevocable will of the Greek Cypriot side to engage in negotiations on the basis of the Annan Plan, whenever he decides, with the aim to reach a more functional and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, if it is possible before 1 May 2004'' the President stressed.

    He expressed the wish that the ''much desired reunification will come bringing again hope and joy to the people of Cyprus who have suffered so much pain''.

    Referring to the year of 2004, he expressed the view that it would be a historic landmark for Cyprus, since ''a vision of at least three decades will be fulfilled, with Cyprus becoming a full EU member state as of 1 May 2004''.

    Cyprus President said that Cyprus' European course has been the greatest achievement of the Cypriot people since the declaration of the Republic of Cyprus.

    He warned though that this achievement ''should not lead to complacency, self-satisfaction or inertia while endeavouring to attain a functional and viable solution to the Cyprus problem''.

    President Papadopoulos stressed that the Greek government, political parties and people have been the active supporters of Cyprus' efforts to reach a solution to the Cyprus problem and to accede to the EU.

    ''We also have the full support of Greeks abroad, who strengthen with their multifarious activities, the struggle and the efforts of the people of Cyprus'', he added.

    The President conveyed his wishes for the New Year to all Cypriots, to the soldiers, the refugees, the enclaved, the relatives of the missing persons as well as to the ones on duty in vital services this evening.
