President Anastasiades addresses people on Tuesday over decentralised federation proposal

President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades will be addressing the people of Cyprus on Tuesday regarding his proposal for a decentralised federation as a form of settlement of the Cyprus problem.

The President’s press conference is scheduled to begin at 1930 local time (1530 GMT), in the Cabinet Room.

President Anastasiades is expected to refer to his proposal for a decentralised federation, in the presence of media representatives from TV stations, newspapers and the Cyprus News Agency.

On November 12, the National Council is set to meet anew. Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou had said that the President is expected to inform the members of the top advisory body on the Cyprus issue regarding his meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci on October 26 and with the UN Secretary General’s envoy Jane Holl Lute, last Wednesday.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
