    Cyprus Ministry of Foreign Affairs has welcomed the restoration of the partnership government in Northern Ireland on Tuesday 8 May, 2007. ``This is an event of major significance in the peace process, which represents the beginning of a new era for Northern Ireland,`` the Ministry said in a press release. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs particularly welcomes the commitment of the parties involved to put their differences aside in an effort to build real and lasting reconciliation.

    It also praises the joint efforts made by the British and Irish governments towards the full implementation of the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement. ``This is a historic breakthrough, committing all participants to exclusively democratic and peaceful means of resolving their differences, in a just, viable and mutually acceptable manner,`` the press release concludes.


    Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos has said that the EU has a role and a say in whatever effort to find a solution, which will be compatible with the acquis communautaire as he addressed guests at a special event to mark the anniversary of Cyprus` accession and the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. He said that EU countries are characterized by diversity, but all joined by the common values and principles that make up the EU. Recalling the Berlin Declaration of 25 March 2007, President Papadopoulos said that we need to learn how to live and work together within the EU for the prosperity of all, for peace and solidarity among the members and meet our obligations as true members of the EU. I am glad to say that Cyprus has met its obligations within the EU to the full. We participate in discussions on all the multilateral issues as well as other matters that concern the Union,`` the Cypriot President added.

    Referring to the Cyprus problem, President Papadopoulos said that the EU has a role and a say in whatever effort to find a solution which will be compatible with the acquis communautaire and values. Pledging Cyprus commitment to the Gambari agreement of July 8 2006, President Papadopoulos said we expect solidarity and support from the EU in getting this process going. So our goal is the implementation of the July agreement which will pave the way for a truly reunified Cyprus and by reunification we mean the unification of territory, society, institutions and above all economy. ``We hope that the values and principles of the EU and the UN Security Council resolutions strong foundation and prosperity of Cyprus and all its people and communities,`` he concluded.

    In his speech, Head of the European Commission Representation in Cyprus Themis Themistocleous said that what Europeans most expect from the Union are constructive policies which can result in an effective institutional reform. Speeches were also delivered by the Çead of the European Parliament Office in Cyprus Tasos Georgiou, who described the day as the most historic day for Cyprus, and the Head of the European Institute of Cyprus Dr Neophytos Chrysochos.
