We will not accept anything less than a modern European state, President says

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has made it clear that “we will not accept anything less than a modern European state,” noting at the same time that the solution of the Cyprus problem will be a painful compromise.

President Anastasiades stressed that he has the historical responsibility to do everything humanly possible to get rid of the occupation army and reunite the country.

For forty-two years we experience on a daily basis the extinction of any Greek element in the northern occupied part of Cyprus, he noted.
