Georgiades: Cyprus Settlement Should Come from the 21st Century and Not the Sad Past

Georgiades: Cyprus Settlement Should Come from the 21st Century and Not the Sad Past

The solution of the Cyprus problem would be decisive in the creation of a modern state safeguarding the conditions of prosperity, security and prospect for its citizens, Minister of Finance Harris Georgiades has said, adding this settlement should come from the 21st century and not the sad past.

Speaking in a memorial service for the victims of the 15 July 1974 coup d’ etat, that paved the way for the Turkish invasion that ensued five days later, Georgiades said the last UN-sponsored effort to reunite Cyprus, which ended inconclusively in Crans Montana, Switzerland, confirmed that the weight of the past continues to dictate the future of the island. 

Neither the international mobilization, nor Cyprus and Greece’s sincere stance are not enough to create a new prospect if they are not accompanied with an equally sincere stance on behalf of Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots, Georgiades added.

He deplored both the coup and the subsequent invasion noting the state recognizes the magnitude of the sacrifice of all those who chose the path of resistance, dignity and self-denial, the Cyprus News Agency reports.
