  • [01] Omirou :Cyprus cannot remain the only divided country in Europe

    Cyprus House of Representatives President Yiannakis Omirou, in a written statement on the occasion of the Greek National Day, says that Cyprus cannot and should not remain the only divided country in Europe.

    Greeks celebrate on 25th March the 1821 revolution, marking the launch of the Greek struggle for independence from Ottoman rule.

    Omirou stresses in his statement, that Europe should not tolerate the presence of an occupation army in a state member of the European Union.

    ``We should insist in the vesting of the rights of the Cypriot people, the withdrawal of Turkish troops and Turkish settlers, the assurance of an effective function of state, the peaceful coexistence with our Turkish Cypriot compatriots, the prosperity and progress of the whole people of Cyprus``, he adds.

    He stresses that our struggle is just and in such struggles, failure is not acceptable.

    ``Our heavily heritage we celebrate today dictate us to struggle firm and steadfastly for the end of occupation, the assurance of human and basic freedoms of the whole Cyprus people``, he concludes.

    Cypriot President Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu have been engaged in direct negotiations which began in 2008 with a view to solve the problem of Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.
