    Greek Ambassador to Cyprus Demetrios Rallis said on Friday that the Cypriot government was making every effort to reach a peaceful, just, viable and functional solution of the Cyprus problem, which would solve the problems without creating more, and in this direction had the full support of the Greek government, the political forces and the people.

    In an address before a luncheon hosted in honour of Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos, Rallis said the Greek Embassy in Nicosia was focused on providing support to the Cypriot government and Cypriot Hellenism, adding that ``the strengthening of Greek education and culture, which have formed along with Orthodoxy our national identity are, along with defence and political support, among our immediate priorities.``

    On the Archbishop`s presence in Cyprus, he said ``it gives us additional strength to continue our efforts for the benefit of Cyprus and Greece, for the benefit of Hellenism as a whole.``

    Replying, Archbishop Christodoulos said ``Cyprus cannot remain in the current situation forever, with refugees, missing persons and enclaved, with occupation and dividing lines.``

    He expressed certainty that ``the Greek state perceives the Cyprus problem as a top priority of its foreign policy because it is a problem of invasion and occupation.``


    *A joint delegation comprising members of the Cypriot and Greek Committees of Relatives of Missing Persons handed over memorandums on Friday to the embassies of the US, Russia and France and the British High Commission in Nicosia, while similar memorandums were sent to the embassies of China and the EU member states, as well as the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus.

    The memorandum, submitted on the occasion of the 23rd Marathon of Love for the Missing Persons, says that the non solution of the 33-year humanitarian problem of missing persons is a stigma on the international community.

    According to a press release issued by the Pancyprian Organisation of Relatives of Undeclared Prisoners and Missing Persons, the memorandum notes that current developments, in the framework of the Committee of Missing Persons, are a step in the right direction, which however cannot be restricted to the exhumation of remains.
