“Famagusta must return to its lawful inhabitants”

 

Review by Christos T. Panagopoulos –

“The return of the fenced-off city of Famagusta to its lawful inhabitants is a necessity that will reveal what the talks really need – the willingness of the other side, to live together and build a common future in a united country with a single sovereignty, citizenship and international personality”, Defense Minister, Fotis Fotiou, said on Sunday afternoon in London.

Speaking at an event to mark the centenary of the birth of Archbishop Makarios III, the first President of the Republic of Cyprus, and the anniversary of the Independence of Cyprus, Fotiou said that despite the difficulties caused by the economic crisis, “we will not relinquish our sovereign rights, nor will we come to an agreement that would endanger the safety of citizens and the viability of the solution”.
