Fotiou: Cyprus – Israel Relations are at the Highest Point Ever

Cyprus – Israel relations are at the highest point ever, said Presidential Commissioner, Fotis Fotiou, addressing the kindling ceremony organised by the Cyprus-Hewish Community in Larnaca.
He said “this reflects our readiness to further broaden our ties in the future and reach the full potential of our partnership”. Fotiou was representing the President of the Republic of Cyprus at the ceremony which is a project of the Cyprus Jewish Community for the celebration of Hanukkah.

The holiday of Hanukkah, celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, and spirituality over materialism. “The smallest of lights, can lighten up the darkest of corners even in the darkest of times, like the greatest tragedy of the Holocaust.  But Faith, has and always will help us persist, preserve and overcome”, he added.

Referring to the relations of Jews and Cypriots, he said “our Jewish brothers and sisters have lived with us in harmony for hundreds of years, on our island. The Jewish Community of Cyprus, has flourished, gone from strength to strength and has become, an integral part of life, within Cyprus”.
Referring to the bonds the two countries share, he said they are deep, longstanding brotherly bonds of friendship. Undoubtedly, he added, “one could say a lot about the close ties of friendship and cooperation that unite the two countries. The History of both, the old and the modern times, contains much about the deep relations of friendship and cooperation between our people and countries”.
