We can reach a Cyprus solution only through national unity, President Anastasiades stresses

The President of the Republic has called for moderate political speech, dialogue and national unity to help reach a political settlement that would reunite Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion. In a written statement, issued here today by the Presidency, to mark the anniversary of the military coup in Athens on April 21, 1967, President Anastasiades notes that it has been half a century since the dark day of the overthrow of democracy in Greece with the coup detat of 21 April 1967. Unfortunately, he added, the sad conclusion of the seven-year dictatorship in Greece was the coup detat in Cyprus which led to the Turkish invasion and occupation.
