US – North Korea agreement an impressive development says Government Spokesman

Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromos said on Tuesday that the agreement reached between the US and North Korea was a positively impressive development.

“It is a positively impressive development. I hope this time-consuming problem with Korea and the issues of nuclear weapons proliferation will come to an end, ” he said invited by the Press to comment on the agreement.

He added that a more stable international environment is in the interest of Cyprus, since the turmoil that has been observed lately, as well as worrying phenomena such as the tension in the EU and the US relations, were certainly not beneficial especially for small states such as the Republic of Cyprus.

He also said that the government monitors all developments and is following the p????? guide-lines decided by all its EU partners.

He added that improving international relations and avoiding tensions and conflicts was in the benefit of the whole world and could also be useful in the case of Cyprus, attracting international interest in the efforts for a solution of the Cyprus problem and towards convincing Turkey to enter substansial negotiations.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory. A UN backed Conference on Cyprus last summer in the Swiss resort of Crans -Montana aiming to reunify the island under a federal roof ended inconclusively.
