  • [01] SYRIZA leader Tsipras meets with Cyprus' Kyprianou

    ANA/MPA---Main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras and general secretary of the central committee of Cyprus' AKEL Andros Kyprianou on Wednesday expressed their concern over the course of negotiations on the Cyprus issue, after a meeting in Athens.

    Tsipras said that the Republic of Cyprus is experiencing a double hostageship - territorial and economic - from the policies implemented by the troika, which has imposed destructive policies to the people.

    In this context, efforts to resolve the Cyprus issue take new dimensions, he noted adding that SYRIZA's main position is that conversations are always welcome, however, critical times require special attention so as not to lead to an unfair solution. The solution to be found, he stressed, must be accepted by the people of Cyprus. Tsipras added that SYRIZA supports the efforts of AKEL and will assist them towards a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with a single citizenship and a single international identity.

    Kyprianou stressed that Greece is the main supporter in this difficult struggle for the liberation and reunification of Cyprus and added that the fact that AKEL supports the process of difficult negotiations does not mean it is not aware of the difficulties and problems that exist. Kyprianou noted that his party is working so as to minimize the risks so that an agreed solution can be achieved, but noted that the Turkish Cypriots do not move from their intransigent positions.
