Cyprus Problem

Cyprus Problem

Greece's Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Wednesday that the Cyprus problem continues to be "an open wound" 48 years after the invasion of Cyprus. 

Mitsotakis, who was addressing a dinner hosted by representatives of Greek American organizations in New York, welcomed the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cyprus, Ioannis Kasoulides who was also attending the dinner.

"We must not forget that the wound of Cyprus is still open and that 48 years after the invasion, the problem of unification of the island, unfortunately, has not yet been resolved" he noted

Referring to Ukraine, Mitsotakis underlined that Greece immediately supported the country with defensive means and cooperated with all those countries that realised that what is at stake in Ukraine goes beyond the sovereignty of a country that was invaded by a larger aggressive force.

"What is at stake is preserving a rules-based international order. And of course this is something that should worry us a lot. It should worry us Greeks, it should worry our brothers in Cyprus," he pointed out.

He added that it is important that Putin is defeated in Ukraine to send a message to all authoritarian leaders that borders cannot be redrawn by force, that historical revisionism will not be rewarded and that there is only one way to resolve differences in today's world and that is the observance of the principles of International Law and the possibility of civilised states to sit at the table, discuss and resolve their differences in a peaceful way.

Regarding the Turkish President's speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Mitsotakis said that Greece is not going to be bullied by Turkey.

"The challenges to Greece's sovereignty are completely unacceptable. We will do whatever it takes to strengthen our alliances. I will devote time to this issue when I speak on Friday at the United Nations General Assembly," he said.
