Cypriot ministers convey government’s vision for resumption of talks

Cypriot Ministers on Sunday called for an end to the current unacceptable situation in Cyprus and said that the government’s vision is the resumption of the dialogue for a solution that will inhibit troops or guardians.

In his address at Spilia, Defence Minister Savas Angelides said the government considers the current situation as unacceptable, illegal and under no circumstances can become acceptable as a solution to the Cyprus issue.

Speaking during the unveiling of a bust of WWI hero Chrysostomos Ieridis, he said that the Republic of Cyprus will not conform with the current state of affairs.

Our duty towards our heroes and children will be fulfilled only with the reunification of our country and securing the future of all lawful inhabitants of the island, so that through dialogue we can reach a solution which will be based on UN resolutions and decisions, as well as the principles and values of the acquis communautaire.

In his address, Justice and Public Order Minister, Ionas Nicolaou said the government’s vision is for a resumption of a well prepared dialogue for a Cyprus settlement, without clauses or troops and guardians.

Addressing a memorial service for those who fell at Kyperounta village, he talked about a constitution that will obey European values and standards, that will unify instead of separating and will protect, instead of depriving freedoms and rights.
