EPP President pledges support to Cyprus’ efforts to protect independence and sovereignty

European People`s Party Donald Tusk promised Democratic Rally President Averof Neofytou support in Cyprus` efforts to protect independence and sovereignty in all aspects, following a meeting of the political assembly of the EPP family in Brussels.

More specifically, after a bilateral meeting with D.Tusk, Democratic Rally President Neofytou stated: “today we had a meeting with the President of the European Peoples Party, the former president of the European Council. We exchanged views about the European issues and also we had the opportunity to inform the President about the illegal activities of Turkey and the violation of the exclusive economic zone of Cyprus. We thanked President Tusk for his constant support to Cyprus and we underlined that the violations of Turkey towards Cyprus is violation for the European values and principles”.

In this context and the same joint Press point EPP President Tusk reiterated the following: “as you know it is nothing new for you, for me, for our colleagues at the EPP, our constant support for Cyprus. I still remember my visit to Cyprus when I was still the President of the European Council and the tough and clear message about Cyprus, about this very aggressive behavior of Turkey and I can only reconfirm also as President of the EPP, under my new capacity, I will in a very consistent way support Cyprus in your efforts to protect your independence and sovereignty in all aspects. Because your sovereignty and independence mean also European sovereignty and independence. You can count on us. And I believe I can say these words not on behalf of our political family but behalf of the whole of Europe”.
