European Elections 2019: The EU must be our shield, Solidarity President says

President of the Solidarity Movement Eleni Theocharous has pointed out the need to make the European Union into a shield to defend Cyprus.

Speaking after casting her vote at a polling station in Limassol in Sunday’s European Elections, Theocharous said tension should stop and everyone should address the problems the country is facing, especially in the light of Turkey’s provocative actions against Cyprus.

With the national interests in mind, we must make the EU a shield to defend Cyprus from Turkish terrorism, Theocharous said.

She expressed hope that Cyprus’ representatives at the European Parliament would be in a position to work towards obtaining funds for Cyprus that would be used to the benefit of the people.
