  • [01] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS PACE

    President of the Republic of Cyprus, Demetris Christofias, departed Monday for Strasbourg, where the next day he will address the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

    In statements before departing for France, President Christofias described the Council of Europe (CoE) as a very important regional organization, which defends human rights and added that Cyprus is based and counts on CoE, as well as on the principles and values of the European Union``.

    President Christofias said that during his stay there, he will have a series of meetings, among others, with PACE President Lluis Maria de Puig, Secretary General of CoE Terry Davis, and President of the European Court of Human Rights Jean Paul Costa.

    The Cypriot President said he would return to Cyprus 1st of October, to attend the celebrations on the occasion of Cyprus Independence Day.

    [02] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS CYPRUS ISSUE

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has stated that the Greek Cypriot side is entering talks on Cyprus with all the good intention and political decency required for an honourable and viable compromise that will last through time.

    In a speech at Karditsa in Greece on Sunday during a gathering to unveil a monument in honour of the Karditsa men who fought and fell during the 1974 Turkish invasion in Cyprus, President Christofias said a solution should reunite the people, the island, institutions and economy and allow the reunited Republic of Cyprus to function effectively within the EU.

    At the same time, he added, we categorically stress that our good will should not be misunderstood by anyone, neither overseas nor on the island.

    We remain consistent and dedicated on the basis and principles of a solution of the Cyprus issue because we are pursuing a functional and viable solution and not a solution for the closure of the Cyprus issue, the President added in his speech, which was read by Director of the Presidents Office Vasos Georgiou.
