  • [01] PRESIDENT RUSSIA OFFICIAL VISIT

    Both the Soviet Union and now the Russian Federation as a permanent member of the UN Security Council offered the most important support to Cyprus, Cyprus President Demetris Christofias has said.

    He added that during his official visit to Moscow he will express the gratitude of the Cyprus people for the fact that the position of the Soviet Union and later the Russian Federation has been of great importance in very crucial times for Cyprus.

    In statements at Larnaca airport before leaving for Moscow for an official visit at the invitation of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, Christofias described his trip to Russia as very important, noting that he will have a private meeting with Medvedev.

    Christofias said that he and Medvedev will sign for the first time in the history of the relations between Russia and Cyprus a political declaration on bilateral relations between the two countries, international relations and the Cyprus question, on the basis of positions of principle on all of these issues.

    As Christofias noted, eight agreements and protocols will be signed during his visit. I want to express my great satisfaction, he noted.

    Christofias expressed certainty that this visit will constitute an important milestone for the relations between the Republic of Cyprus and the Russian Federation and will contribute to the further enhancement and deepening of the already traditional and friendly relations of solidarity between the two countries and the two peoples.

    Christofias noted that there are close ties between the people of Cyprus and the people of Russia and traditions which were developed even before the declaration of the Republic of Cyprus.
