House Speaker Says The Effort For A Reunified Cyprus Continues

House Speaker Says The Effort For A Reunified Cyprus Continues

The Republic of Cyprus, both the government and the parliament, are continuing the effort for a reunified Cyprus, having the right on their side, House of Representatives President Annita Demetriou said on Sunday, pointing out at the same time that Turkish announcements for a change of status of part of the Turkish-occupied fenced-off city of Varosha constitute a provocation which is a source of concern not just for Cyprus but also for the broader Eastern Mediterranean region and a threat for European security.

 

Addressing a memorial service for EOKA hero Michalakis Parides, in the village of Vavla, Larnaca, Demetriou said that the the Turkish announcement for a change of status of part of the fenced-off city of Turkish occupied Famagusta, known as Varosha, constitutes "a blatant and shameless violation of relevant UN Security Councili resolutions, which call for a return of the city to its legitimate residents and an immediate transfer of the area under United Nations administration."

 

"Such provocations undermine efforts for the resumption of substantive negotiations to reach a comprehensive solution of the Cyprus problem on the basis of a bizonal, bi-communal federation," she noted. At the same time, she pointed out, "they constitute a source of concern, not just for Cyprus but also for the broader Eastern Mediterranean region and a threat for European security."

 

"The Republic of Cyprus, both the government and the parliament, "are continuing our effort, having the right on our side, for a reunified Cyprus," she stressed.

 

It is, Demetriou said, our obligation to all our heroes, to continue the effort "armed with United Nations resolutions, international law provisions and the principles and values of the European Union, of which we are a member."

 

She further noted that "we owe it to our children and future generations to achieve a viable and peaceful co-existence of all legitimate residents of the Republic of Cyprus, in an island free from occupation forces."
