Tsipras on Informal Meeting Chaired by UN Sec Gen on Cyprus Issue

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras, in a post on Facebook on Tuesday, underlined: "In today's informal meeting chaired by UN Secretary General on the Cyprus issue, Greece's role is crucial and its prestige important. Greece is the country that resolved, in the UN context, the name issue with North Macedonia, a decades-long international issue that opened the way for peace and cooperation in the Balkans and, at the same time, the country that struggled for a just and viable solution for the Cyprus issue at Crans-Montana".

"It is imperative that we insist on the reunification of Cyprus as a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with one sovereignty, one nationality and a single international personality – as provided in UN Security Council resolution that are binding for all – free of guarantees and occupation troops," the main opposition leader said, and underlined that "any proposal for two states or a confederation is unacceptable".
