We remain focused on the liberation and reunification of Cyprus, President Anastasiades says

We remain focused on the liberation and reunification of Cyprus, President of the Republic, Nicos Anastasiades, said today, on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary since the declaration of the Independence of Cyprus.

 

President Anastasiades wished the Republic of Cyprus a long life in a tweet, adding that “we honour everyone that struggled for our homeland and we remain focused on the liberation and reunification of our land.”

 

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The latest round of negotiations, in July 2017 at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana ended inconclusively.
