President Anastasiades expresses hope the new year to bring freedom to Cyprus

President Nikos Anastasiades welcomed Friday at the Presidential Palace the members of philharmonics of the National Guard, ELDYK and the Cyprus Police who sang Christmas carols.

The President wished them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, expressing the hope that the new year will bring the much-desired freedom of our homeland.

The President of the Republic also said that this year is the last one that he welcomes them, as he is not running for President again, adding that “I will always remember you and I hope you remember me too”.

President Anastasiades’ 10-year administration ends March. The elections will take place February.

Cyprus has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.
