  • [01] Tsipras: 'We steadily support a fair and viable solution for Cyprus'

    Greece supports a fair and viable solution of the Cyprus issue, which constitutes a primary goal for Greeks and Cypriots, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday, after a meeting with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades in Athens.

    "Solving the Cyprus issue is a primary national aim not only for the Greeks and the Cypriot people but also for Europe and the wider region," Tsipras said during a joint presser.

    "We steadily support a fair and viable solution for Cyprus, on the basis of U.N. decisions and Cyprus' status as an EU member-state, without Turkish occupation forces and with the abolition of the anachronistic system of guarantees," he added.

    The Greek prime minister said that given the critical times the world is experiencing in the region and Europe, those talks gain additional importance. He also said the Cyprus issue is not a bilateral but an international issue that begun with the illegal invasion and occupation by Turkish troops.

    Speaking to Anastasiades, Tsipras said Cyprus will receive every support from Greece in this negotiating effort because "we believe the fair solution of the Cypriot issue will be to the benefit of the Cypriot people."

    He said he was fully briefed by Anastasiades on the significant progress being made in talks with the Turkish-Cypriot side and the issues that remain open.

    [02] Four migrants dead after coast guard rescues 19 people off Thassos

    Four of the 19 migrants located on Wednesday in a dinghy 15 miles east of the island of Thassos are dead, the doctor who examined them at the port of Kavala said.

    The search and rescue operation started on Tuesday when one of the passengers called for help through the European emergency number 112. A Super Puma helicopter, two coast guard boats and private boats participated in the operation.

    The other 15 migrants are well in their health, authorities said.
