  • [01] MISSING PERSON - PRESIDENT - CYPRUS ISSUE

    Collective action and unity of forces are essential for ridding Cyprus of the occupation, reuniting the country and securing the implementation of human rights, Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Antonis Paschalides said on Wednesday, speaking on behalf of President of the Republic Demetris Christofias at the funeral of the mortal remains of reserve soldier Adamos Adamou, at St. Raphaels church in Xylotympou.

    Thirty six years after the big tragedy of July 1974, Cypriot people continue to feel its impact, he said, adding that the humanitarian problem of missing persons constitutes one of the most tragic facets of the Cypriot drama.

    Adamos Adamou, who in 1974 was 29 years old, was a successful mechanical engineer and was living with his expecting wife and two daughters. During the Turkish invasion, Adamos was serving as a reserve officer at the 229 Battalion Infantry, which in August 14 was moved to the area of Trachoni Kythreas.

    After a hard and unequal fight, a retreat was ordered and his whereabouts remained unknown ever since. His mortal remains were discovered in 2007, at a collective grave located in the area of the Turkish Cypriot village of Agia.

    Paschalides paid his respects to the relatives of the missing persons and assured them that the government will continue its decisive efforts to determine the fate of their beloved persons.

    Addressing the relatives of Adamos, the Minister wished them to find solace in the knowledge that our people and the state retain his memory in their hearts and mind for ever.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern third.

    [02] GHANA PRESIDENT - CYPRUS ISSUE

    Ghana supports every initiative that aims at promoting a peaceful settlement of the Cyprus problem, President of the country John Evans Atta Mills said, referring to the proposals submitted by Cyprus President Demetris Christofias in the framework of efforts to reach a settlement to the problem of Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.

    Mills was talking during a meeting he had with the new High Commissioner of Cyprus to Ghana, based in Cairo, Costa Leontiou, who presented his credentials on August 5.

    According to an official press release issued here, the ceremony of credentials took place at the Golden Jubilee House in Accra, where Leontiou was received at a private hearing by Mills.

    During their meeting, the President and the Ambassador referred to the friendly ties between the two countries and expressed the mutual will to enhance them further.
