    [02] House President asks for US support for a just solution

    The Republic of Cyprus wishes for US support in order to find a just and democratic solution to the Cyprus problem and to face Turkey's threats over exercising its sovereign rights within its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

    In statements he made to the press after a meeting he had with US Ambassador John Koenig Omirou stressed that Turkish threats constitute a flagrant violation of international law and particularly of the International Convention on the Law of the Sea.

    Due to its important role in the international political arena, the US can play a leading role in a solution of the Cyprus issue.

    The two-day Informal Council, held on October 4 and 5 in the framework of the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the EU, focused on the contribution of education in the economic development of member states and the welfare of European citizens, as well as on the problem of illiteracy.
