    Hasikos says Cyprus must have strong defence

    Larnaca, Aug 10 (CNA) - Minister of Defence Socratis Hasikos has said that Cyprus must have a strong dissuasive power in order to bring about a peaceful solution to the Cyprus problem and for the island to accede to the European Union.

    Speaking after yesterday's swearing in ceremony of new recruits in Larnaca, Hasikos said "everyone hopes that a solution of the Cyprus problem will finally be found and that Cyprus will peacefully proceed with its EU accession", adding that in order for this to be achieved through peaceful means, "there must be a strong dissuasive power and this force is the National Guard and the armed forces of the Republic of Cyprus".

    Christofias opens celebrations for town's 120th anniversary

    Nicosia, Aug 10 (CNA) - House of Representatives President and acting President of the Republic Demetris Christofias has assured "we will continue to work for the peaceful reunification of our state and people, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, in conditions of freedom and full respect of human rights".

    Opening three-day celebrations last night organised by the Municipality of Poli Chrysohous for the 120th anniversary since the founding of the town, Christofias said "the continuous deadlocks and the inability to find a just and viable solution, due to the delaying tactics and intransigent stance of the Turkish side, naturally create feelings of disappointment", noting that "these feelings, however, will not divert us from our principles".
