FM Dendias: After the Berlin Wall, Time for the ‘Nicosia Wall’ to Come Down as Well

November 9, 2019

ATHENS- Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias drew a parallel between divided Germany and the occupied northern part of the island of Cyprus, in a statement commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall on his private Twitter account on Saturday.

“Thirty years ago, the Berlin Wall came down and a great country stopped being divided in two. Let us hope the time has come at last for the ‘Nicosia Wall’ to come down and the last divided capital city to be unified,” Dendias said, referring to the Cyprus capital.


NICOSIA - Nationalist Turkish-Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar's party got the most votes for a self-declared government parliament on the occupied side of the island but will need to form a coalition with a rival party.
