  • [01] PRESIDENT T/C TURKISH TROOPS

    Turkish Cypriots are citizens of the Republic of Cyprus and thus the government is interested in what is happening in the Turkish Cypriot community, Cypriot President Demetris Christofias has stressed, noting that Greek Cypriots are not involved in the demonstrations in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus.

    President Christofias urged Turkey to listen to the voice of the Turkish Cypriots and especially to their basic demand, to withdraw its troops from Cyprus and let Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots decide freely upon their common future.

    Invited to comment on accusations on behalf of Turkey that Greek Cypriots are involved in the demonstrations staged in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus by Turkish Cypriots against the financial policy in the occupied areas and against Turkey, the President said that there is no involvement at all.

    But he pointed out that the government of Cyprus is interested in what is happening in the occupied areas and among the Turkish Cypriot community, noting that they are equal citizens of the Republic of Cyprus just like the Greek Cypriots, the Maronites, Armenians and Latins.

    Turkey should listen to the voice of the Turkish Cypriots who are demonstrating and to their basic demand, which is to withdraw its troops from Cyprus. Ankara must go to Ankara, and by this I mean that Turkish troops should return to Turkey and let Cypriots, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, decide freely upon their future, in the framework of a bizonal, bicommunal federation, he stressed.

    [02] GOVERNMENT EGYPT

    The government of Cyprus is interested in the normalisation of the political situation in Egypt, President of the Republic Demetris Christofias has stressed.

    He also expressed the governments interest in democratic changes in Egypt, which will not have any negative impact on Egypts foreign policy, especially as regards its relations with Cyprus and its positions on the Cyprus issue.

    Invited Sunday to comment on the political situation in Egypt, the President said that Cyprus relations with Egypt are the closest ones among two neighboring countries, noting we want those close relations to continue.

    He wished the people of Egypt to soon solve their problems and noted that Egypt plays a vital role in the region, especially among Arab states.
