Greece in the International Arena

karkyp12(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Addressing the Cypriot Parliament during his official visit to Cyprus (April 23-24), Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis stressed the need for a Cyprus settlement to be reached between the two communities on the island without any interventions, on the basis of the United Nations-mediated peace talks for the reunification of the divided island.”Respect for the independence and sovereignty of Cyprus has been the cornerstone of Greece’s stance in the Cyprus problem,” said Karamanlis. Greece has long supported the solution of a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation and political equality, as laid down in the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, with a single international personality, a single sovereignty and a single citizenship.
