    President of the World Federation of Overseas Cypriots (POMAK) Charis Sophoclides and President of the Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) Philip Christopher both pointed out on Saturday that an increase in their funds would facilitate the further promotion of the Cyprus problem abroad.

    Christopher said the funds provided by the governments of Greece and Cyprus for enlightenment purposes should exceed 50 million dollars, in order to effectively tackle Turkish propaganda.

    Both Sophoclides and Christopher said this year`s congress was one of the best yet, adding that it was productive and well organised.
