 Simitis: idea of confederation will never be acceptedThe Greek government's aim is for a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, which envisages a bizonal bicommunal Republic of Cyprus with a single sovereignty, based on the United Nations resolutions.
The above was stated by the Prime Minister of Greece Mr Costas Simitis, in his speech at the meeting of the Parliamentary Group of the Greek Socialist Party Pasok on 4 October.
Mr Simitis also stressed that the Greek and Cyprus governments will never accept the idea of confederation.
The Prime Minister said that the Greek government would always provide support to President Clerides in his negotiating efforts. He also added that relations between Athens and Nicosia are and will continue to be very strong.
