    The international community and the EU should not just be passive observers of Turkish aggression against Cyprus but it should react, said Monday President of the House of Representatives Yiannakis Omirou.

He met Antonis Samaras the leader of the conservative party Nea Dimokratia, Giorgos Karatzaferis the leader of the right wing party LAOS, Secretary General of the communist party KKE Aleca Papariga and Parliamentary Spokesman of the left wing party SYRIZA Panayiotis Lafazanis.

    ``We are faced with developments, challenges, dangers but also opportunities, Omirou said in statements to the press after his meetings, adding that ``the challenges should be met successfully, the opportunities should be seized and the dangers should be avoided``.
