Pope's Visit And Meetings In Cyprus Send Strong Message Of Solidarity, President Says

Pope's Visit And Meetings In Cyprus Send Strong Message Of Solidarity, President Says

Pope Francis` visit to Cyprus and the meetings he holds send a strong message of solidarity in our common cause and joint objectives and are a testament of the continuation of the positive record of bilateral relations between the Republic of Cyprus and the Holy See, President Nicos Anastasiades has said.

Speaking at the official dinner Thursday evening, in honor of the delegation of the Holy See, he noted that the visit of His Holiness, Pope Francis, to Cyprus is a truly historic event and constitutes a great honour for Cyprus and its people.

 He said that the visit comes at testing times for the entire world where inequality is rising, intolerance is prevalent among peoples and faith, human rights remain under attack and injustice is widespread.

"Forced displacement and migration, do not only jeopardize efforts to adapt national policies to the new economic and social challenges, but have left millions of people stranded all over the world facing severe risks.  The impacts of climate change are felt worldwide and there is no doubt that they will affect future generations.We are in need of peace, collaboration, compassion and the necessary will to make the world a better place", the President said.

According to the President, His Papacy embodies all these principles and many more, and has inspired many people across the globe, including in our region and in our country.

Addressing Cardinal Parolin, the State Secretary of the Vatican the President noted that his visit in Cyprus provides us with a great opportunity to exchange views on the challenges I referred to, and discuss ways by which to strengthen our work on issues of ecumenical relevance.

He expressed his appreciation for the long-standing support of the Holy See to our tireless efforts to resolve the Cyprus problem and reunify the people of Cyprus, Latins, Armenians, Maronites, Turkish-Cypriots and Greek-Cypriots.

"Cypriots from all ethnic or religious backgrounds are blessed with resilience, but also the feeling of hope that faith brings.

 My vision is that, despite current difficulties, the reunification of Cyprus - which has been the cause of my whole life -, will become the beacon of hope both at home and in our turbulent region", he said.

President Anastasiades underlined that the strong ties that unite Cyprus and the Holy See will continue and assured of his commitment to further deepen our relations and cooperation.

Cyprus has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasions. Numerous talks to reunite the island under a federal roof failed to yield results.
