    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias concludes his official visit to Moscow today (Thursday), having signed yesterday a joint declaration with the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev to develop further bilateral ties and cooperation.

    On Thursday morning President Christofias will be declared a distinguished honoured doctorate holder by the University of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

    Later on, the President is due to meet Sergey Myronov, Chairman of the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation and then he will give a press conference at ITAR-TASS offices.

    In the afternoon he will meet Moscow Mayor Yuri Louzkov and in the evening he will attend a concert and a reception, hosted by Cyprus Ambassador in Moscow Petros Kestoras.

    The President and the Cypriot delegation return home on Friday.


    Russia and Cyprus signed a Joint Declaration to enhance even further bilateral relations on the political, economic and technical level, reiterating their common position for a comprehensive just and viable settlement in Cyprus.

    The Declaration on the further deepening of the bonds of friendship and the overall cooperation between the Republic of Cyprus and the Russian Federation was signed by Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev after official talks at the Kremlin, as part of a four-day official visit to Russia by Christofias.

    The two governments reaffirm the need for a comprehensive just and viable settlement in Cyprus, on the basis of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the High Level Agreements of 1977 and 1979. These provide for the evolution of the unitary state of the Republic of Cyprus into a bicommunal bizonal federation, with a single sovereignty, a single citizenship, one international personality, which will incorporate political equality, as this is defined in the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

    The Russian Federation, the Declaration points out, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, will continue to support a mutually agreed solution between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities, without arbitration or artificial timeframes, which will secure at the same time the Cypriot ownership of the negotiating process.
