  • [01] LILLIKAS - UN DAY

    The ineffectiveness of the UN directly affects Cyprus, Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas said on Thursday, noting that the unwillingness of the Security Council to implement its resolutions on Cyprus and the inability of the international community to oblige Turkey to respect international law, permit the continuation of the military occupation of the Republic of Cyprus.

    In a speech on ``The Present and Future of the United Nations``, given on the occasion of the UN Day, at an event organised by the UN Association of Cyprus, at the Presidential Palace, Lillikas said the policy of ``double standards`` and the international tolerance towards Turkey`s actions has allowed the deprivation of the basic human rights of Cypriot citizens, the violation of the territorial integrity of the Republic, and the mass colonisation of the occupied areas, to continue 32 years after the Turkish invasion.

    He noted that each year the anniversary of the UN establishment is celebrated in Cyprus, ``since its existence and action is of great significance to our country.``

    ``It is in the framework of the UN that we defend the sovereignty of our state and seek a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem. The resolutions of the Security Council and the General Assembly are the ammunitions which enable us to demand restitution of our rights. Furthermore, the UN Peacekeeping Force, present here since the beginning of 1964, is a very significant factor, which has perhaps saved our people from greater ills,`` he said.
