  • [01] Kassimis addresses int'l meeting in Nicosia

    NICOSIA (ANA-MPA / A. Viketos) - Deputy Foreign Minister Theodoros Kassimis said here on Monday that Europe was the body that can create real bridges to overcome differences. He made the statement in an address at an international meeting for peace, entitled "The Civilisation of Peace: Faiths and Cultures in Dialogue", organised by the Church of Cyprus in cooperation with the St. Egidio Community. Kassimis represents the Greek government at the meeting, which comes to an end on Tuesday. "The civilisation of illumination has essentially come to an end. It has come to an end through disputes and international practices which had pushed away values that had kept us bound for some centuries ... In this deployment of a new cultural reality, Europe has the obligation to participate effectively. This precedes any kind of action in individual fields. A human-centred and social Europe has begun to wake up," the Greek minister noted. Referring to Europe's special role, Kassimis said it has started, over the past three years, operating in a unified manner, citing the 2006 war in Lebanon, the crisis in Georgia and the ongoing world financial crisis. "Europe's hour has come. The question is whether the whole of Europe has become aware of it," Kassimis added. The meeting is being attended by religious leaders, heads of state and representatives of different cultures and faiths, as well as intellectuals, secular scholars and journalists.
