    Under the slogan Now is the time for solution, reunification and peace Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot women, members of various organisations, trade unions and NGOs, gathered on the National Womens Action Day for Peace at the check point, in Ledra street, in the capital Nicosia to demand peace and the reunification of Cyprus. In a joint declaration they adopted on Saturday, they sent a message of peace to all women in Cyprus and the world at large and called on them to strengthen the global struggle of women for peace in the whole world while they expressed their desire to end conflicts and wars.

    The womens organisations believe that the substantive talks between Christofias and Talat can, with good will and determination, lead to a bizonal, bicommunal federation, based on political equality as it is defined in UN Security Council decisions. A solution based on the resolutions of the UN Security Council, the High Level agreements and in the framework of the joint statements of 23 May and 1st of July, the declaration noted. UN resolutions, the High Level agreements and the May and July statements by Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat provide for a bizonal bicommunal federation, in a reunited Cyprus, with a single sovereignty and a single international personality.

    Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot women expressed their full support for the negotiating process and their hope for a speedy solution of the Cyprus problem and the reunification of their country. They also express their will to contribute to the efforts for reconciliation and rapprochement of the islands two communities, to build a happier future for future generations which will allow them to live in peace, far from prejudice and with respect for diversity.
