    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has expressed the commitment to work hard for the achievement of a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Addressing an event, which took place Monday evening to mark the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the Neocleous Lyceum, President Christofias, a graduate of the Lyceum, expressed the wish that a solution of the Cyprus problem is achieved during his term in office.

    President Christofias pledged to do his utmost for the achievement of the feasible and prevent the continuation of chasing the desirable,which, as he added, has led us to a worse situation.

    The goals of the desirable are noble but the desirable has proven a lot of times to be non feasible, he noted.

    He expressed the wish that one day Cyprus is reunified, on the basis of principles.

    I wish that one day we can live with our Turkish Cypriot compatriots without any occupation or foreign interventions, he went on to add.

    I sincerely wish and hope that before the end of my term in office I manage to reunify our country and our people, he concluded.


    EU Commissioner for enlargement Stefan Fuele has urged Ankara to normalise its relations with the Republic of Cyprus.

    Speaking at a joint news conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Ankara, Fuele said that the implementation of the Ankara Additional Protocol is important for the EU and urged Turkey to normalise its relations with the Republic of Cyprus.

    He also said that the EU fully supports the ongoing UN-led direct negotiations which began September 2008 with a view to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    The Enlargement Commissioner expressed the view that the negotiations have reached a good level, adding that if the two sides in Cyprus have the necessary good will a comprehensive solution could be reached. The Commission, he went on to add, is ready to contribute to efforts to implement the agreement which may be reached in Cyprus.
