  • [01] PRESIDENT CYPRUS ISSUE

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has underlined that efforts to reunify Cyprus and its people will continue with persistence and good will.

    In an address at a mass at the Armenian Church in Nicosia, read out by Deputy Minister to the President Titos Christofides, President Christofias stressed we remain committed to our goals for the creation of a peaceful, united and prosperous homeland for all its citizens, Greek Cypriots, Turkish Cypriots, Maronites, Armenians and Latins.

    He reiterated that efforts to reunify Cyprus and its people will continue with persistence and good will, asserting our rights based on principles. We pursue a bizonal, bicommunal federation with a single sovereignty, citizenship and international personality as well as unified economic institutions.

    Referring to the Armenian people living in Cyprus, he said that tight bonds of friendship and common struggles describe the historic paths of Greek Cypriots and Armenians in our country.

    Cyprus and its people have always been present to the important historic times of the Armenian people, he said.

    The Cypriot President recalled that Cyprus was the first European state, which adopted a resolution recognising the Armenian Genocide.

    The religious groups in Cyprus, he said, are an important part of Cyprus and enrich its multicultural society.

    President Christofias reassured that the government does its utmost to contribute to maintaining he religious groups` identities.

    [02] GAROYIAN ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

    President of the House of Representatives Marios Garoyian has underlined the need to restore the historic truth as regards the Armenian Genocide.

    We ask for justice. We demand the restoration of the historic truth, not its falsification, which is the attempt of the Turkish government, which uses methods and so called initiatives for peace with Armenia, he stressed.

    Speaking after a mass at the Armenian Church in Nicosia, he said that on days like this one, I believe we have the duty to remember the Armenian Genocide and reaffirm our steadfast faith towards the struggle for international recognition of that terrible crime which marked the fate and the course of the Armenian people.

    Garoyian pointed out that justice and freedom is what we want for our common country, Cyprus, which for 35 years now suffers the consequences of the Turkish invasion and occupation.
