    [01] Greek Cypriot side will continue its efforts to achieve a just and viable solution

    The President of the Republic Mr Tassos Papadopoulos reiterated the Greek Cypriot side's determination to continue, irrespective of the cost and sacrifice, to struggle until it succeeds in reversing the present status quo and it secures the reunification of Cyprus. In his speech, which was read out by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, at the anti occupation rally for Famagusta on 2 August 2003, President Papadopoulos condemned the Turkish invasion and occupation and noted that on the same day every year the people of Cyprus remember with great nostalgia the beautiful town of Famagusta and the surrounding villages, which for the last 29 years are under Turkish occupation. Referring to the solution of the Cyprus problem, President Papadopoulos said that under the present circumstances, the reunification of Cyprus is feasible only within the framework of a bicommunal, bizonal federation and the United Nations Secretary General's Plan. "In the most clear, official and categorical way we reiterate the almost unanimous policy of the National Council that we remain ready and eager, without preconditions, to promptly respond to any invitation by the UN Secretary General to resume negotiations for a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem in the framework and in the parameters of the Annan Plan," he said. The President promised that the Greek Cypriot side would continue, in the most constructive way, its efforts to achieve a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem before 1st May 2004, so that a reunited Cyprus can accede to the European Union. He underlined that the accession of a reunited Cyprus would be in the interest of all the lawful inhabitants of the Republic of Cyprus, Greek Cypriots, Turkish Cypriots, Maronites, Armenians and Latins, who would be able to enjoy the multiple benefits offered by European Union membership.
