ATHENS. "Time goes by but nobody forgets. 47 years from the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and our message of a fair solution with the island united and without occupation troops remains strong, real and totally active" stated Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in a post on Facebook on Tuesday on the sad anniversary.
"Today we remember and fight by honouring the heroes that defended the integrity and independence of Cyprus" he said among others.
"It is time for Turkey to abandon the deadlock of threats against Cyprus and the Turkish-Cypriots. Αfter all, they are threats against the international legality and stability in the region, against the EU and the values of the 21st century and that's why they will not be tolerated", Mitsotakis said.
