  • [02] SYRIA - MESSAGE


    Cypriot President Demetris Christofias said on Friday that his permanent concern was the successful outcome of efforts for a just and viable settlement of the Cyprus problem, and expressed hope that ``our Turkish Cypriot compatriots will meet this joint effort in good faith for a settlement that will serve the interests of the people of Cyprus and no one else, and the international interest will work as a strong lever to curb Turkey`s intransigence.``

    Addressing an event hosted by the women`s department of leftwing AKEL, on the occasion of the International Women`s Day on March 8, President Christofias said that ``we will also continue our social struggles for a just society,`` adding that ``our slogan for a just settlement and a just society is the guiding light for all our future actions.``

    ``Our aim is a bicommunal bizonal federation, provided for by the high level agreements of 1977 and 1979, a solution based on UN resolutions, in line with international and European law, respecting the human rights of all citizens. A federal Republic of Cyprus with one sovereignty, one international identity, a single economy and institutions, which will unite Cyprus and its people, is feasible,`` he pointed out.

    He assured that, ``along with our organised efforts for a just and viable solution of the Cyprus problem, we will make every effort to implement our commitments for the development of a fairer society, of which the corner stone of its success will be the solution of the serious problems concerning women and children.``

    We hope that not only on this but on many other issues this will never separate the spirit of friendship between the countries, Makdad said concluding there are solutions for everything.
