President Tells AJC Cyprus Solution Needs Concrete Turkish Contributions

Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, the President of Cyprus, said during his visit to Chicago that a Cyprus is not possible without concrete contributions from Turkey. CNA reported that “regrettably, Turkey, beyond mere rhetoric, has yet to undertake practical steps,” Anastasiades emphasized.

On September 21 he told the  participants in the American Jewish Committee Annual Board meeting in Chicago, that Cyprus,  is making a great effort in pursuit of a solution to the Cyprus problem, which is important because peace and stability are precious commodities in the Eastern Mediterranean.

“With the new leader of the Turkish Cypriot community we share a common vision to reunify our country and its people in a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation, in accordance with UN Security Council Resolutions, High Level Agreements and the Joint Declaration of 11 February 2014” Anastasiades said.


NICOSIA — Cyprus has assisted in rescue of a small wooden boat crammed with more than 300 migrants that was floating adrift 203 kilometers (126 miles) west of the island nation, a Cypriot official said Tuesday.
