  • [01] Economic difficulties will not bend our determination for a solution says Interior Minister

    Interior Minister Socrates Hasikos sent Sunday the message that any temporary difficulties due to the economic woes in Cyprus will neither bend nor curb the determination and the fighting spirit of Cypriot people.

    "We will not allow any forgery or falsification of our history. Nor we will bend to any blackmail and inappropriate pressure, "he said.

    [02] Government aims to reverse dangerous positions in Cyprus issue

    The government's aim is to reverse dangerous positions as regards the Cyprus issue and to abate Turkish intransigence, which will in turn boost a new process of talks, Minister of Defence Photis Photiou has said.

    He was speaking during a memorial in honour of the men of National Guard Battalion 336, who perished during the Turkish invasion, in Ayios Dometios Nicosia.

    Hard work, good preparation and unity of efforts on all levels are imperative and the only way out in order for the Cyprus problem to be seen in its true dimension, Photiou noted.
