Cyprus solution a compromise, says Minister

Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Michalis Polynikis has stressed that the lapse of time since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus does not give anybody the right to abandon efforts to find a negotiated settlement.

Speaking at a memorial service of four men killed during the military coup against the legal government of the Republic, which preceded the Turkish invasion, Polynikis stressed that we must not compromise with partition.

“We know that the final solution won’t be ideal, it will be a compromise. We insist though that it should be functional and viable. It must not relinquish fundamental principles, on which President Christofias focuses with firmness and consistency to secure that the solution will allow us to live in peace and safety,” he said.

The solution, he pointed out, must free Cyprus from Turkey’s occupation and put a halt to the influx of illegal settlers.

“We want a solution to reunite Cyprus and its people in a bizonal, bicomunal federation with one sovereignty, one citizenship and one personality, to ensure respect of human rights and basic principles for all Cypriots,” he added.

He said Greek and Turkish Cypriots must work together to find a mutually acceptable solution that will serve first and foremost their interests, adding that the international community must also help by directing its efforts towards Ankara to convince its government that a Cyprus solution will also serve its own interests.

Commemorating the military coup and the Turkish invasion is an obligation towards history and acknowledging historical truth is a firm basis on which people can create and prosper, Polynikis added.
