  • [01] SPOKESMAN - BRITISH BASES

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou said that the proposal for returning part of the territory of the British Bases in Cyprus is conditional upon the solution of the Cyprus problem, which needs a change in the stance of Turkey in order to be achieved.

    Replying to questions on the sidelines of an event organised by the Pancyprian Association of World War II Fighters, to mark the Remembrance Day for the victims of the two World Wars, Stephanou said the proposal was made known on Tuesday evening and he did not know the details.

    However, he said President of the Republic Demetris Christofias would be meeting in London with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown later in the day, and that earlier on he had a working breakfast with Foreign Secretary David Miliband.

    ``I am sure that this issue will also be discussed between the President of the Republic and the British Prime Minister, so that we can see the details and know exactly what it is about,`` he added.

    [02] PRESIDENT - SOLUTION

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias expressed certainty on Wednesday that the day of the reunification of Cyprus ill come soon and pointed out that ``it is necessary for all of us to show the greatest possible political maturity as well as determination in order to assert our rights without violating basic principles.``

    Addressing an event on the occasion of the Remembrance Day for the victims of the two World Wars, in Nicosia, organised by the Pancyprian Association of World War II Fighters, President Christofias assured that the Greek Cypriot side continues persistently, consistently and with political will to struggle for the solution of the Cyprus problem on the basis of a bizonal, bicommunal federation.

    In his address, which was read out by Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou, President Christofias said Remembrance Day points out and emphasises that peace, freedom and democracy are values that were attained through sacrifices and that for their defence a constant struggle against all those policies which impose wars and promote injustice is necessary.

    He referred to the history of the two World Wars and noted that ``our country also became a victim of invasion and occupation`` and that ``Cyprus responded to the antifascist call of World War II and defended the freedom of many countries in order to be able, after that, to acquire its own freedom.``
