    The solution of the Cyprus problem remains the top national priority for Greece, said the Ambassador of Greece to Cyprus Vassilis Papaioannou in a written statement on the occasion of the celebration of the 53rd anniversary of the proclamation of independence of the Republic of Cyprus.

    In his statement, Papaioannou extends his heartfelt wishes and expresses his deep appreciation to the people of Cyprus for their struggle for freedom and democracy, safeguarding the independence and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus and the progress and prosperity of the people of Cyprus.

    He also notes that all people of Greece and the entire political leadership of the country support the efforts of the government of Cyprus to end the Turkish occupation and reunite the island in a free, single prosperous and modern democracy.
