  • [01] MORPHOU - MARCH

  • [01] MORPHOU - MARCH

    House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias pointed out on Sunday that if Turkey is not monitored and does not meet its obligations towards the Republic of Cyprus, then any prospects for a Cyprus settlement will be annulled because Ankara will not have a reason to deal with the island`s political problem or a motive to help solve it.

    He added that the Greek Cypriot side wishes to see Turkey progress in its EU accession course, since under preconditions it could work as a catalyst for a Cyprus settlement.

    In a speech at the 26th Morphou Anti-occupation March, Christofias said "we wish for Turkey to continue its European course and work towards democratisation," noting that "a Turkey that will function in the spirit of international law principles, creates prospects for a Cyprus settlement."

    The march, organised by the Turkish occupied municipality of Morphou in cooperation with Morphou organisations and communities, with the participation of foreign MPs and personalities, compliments various other events, which cover the cultural, social and enlightenment sectors.

    Morphou Mayor Charalambos Pittas deplored the illegal exploitation of Greek Cypriot property in the occupied areas and called on the UN Secretary General to take all necessary measures to protect the rights of the legitimate owners from any illegal exploitation, which is leading Cyprus to division not reunification.

    He said Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots alike wish to and can live united, and sent the message to the Turkish Cypriots that "together we will struggle for the reunification of our homeland."

    During the event, a resolution to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan was adopted. It says the international community must exert pressure on Turkey to shift from its intransigent stance and work towards a just and viable settlement, which will be based on UN decisions and will not contradict EU principles.

    The resolution says a solution of the Cyprus problem must guarantee the independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus and the withdrawal of all Turkish troops and settlers.
