    “We are ready to engage in meaningful negotiations with the aim of finding a sustainable and lasting solution“, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Konstantinos Kombosduring the 39th PSEKA Congress in Washington and added that “this solution is based on the agreed framework for a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with political equality, as defined by the relevant resolutions of the Security Council >UN and in full respect of EU principles and values”.

    “Anything else belongs to the realm of illegality and would create a dangerous< /strong> previousfor the international community as a whole. To this end, we fully support the mission of the UN Secretary-General's Personal Envoy. I assure you that both President Christodoulidis and I will continue to work with realism, determination and in a completely constructive way, to achieve solution to the Cyprus issue. You are our point of contact with American society and the American Government. With the most powerful country in the world,” he noted.

    On the sidelines of the conference, the Minister of Foreign Affairs launched Photo Exhibition for the 50th anniversary of the illegal Turkish invasion of Cyprus. These images traveled to the US from the archives of the Nicosia Press and Information Office.

    The Minister of Foreign Affairs underlined that “the photographs serve as a reminder of Turkish brutality, aggression and continued violation of international law”.

    Washington is the first stop of this photographic exhibition, which will travel around the world, through the network of Cypriot Diplomatic Missions. Cyprus has a collection of more than 100 photographs, some of which are appearing for the first time.

    “The photographs in the exhibition are the mosaic of collective memory strong> of the destruction, of the suffering of our people” said Mr. Kombos.

    “In 39 days Cyprus, its people, the diasporathey will mourn as the illegal Turkish invasion of Cyprus will complete its 50th anniversary. We Don't Forget. We have a duty not to forget. The Photography Exhibition, which I have the honor to inaugurate today, takes us on a journey to that tragic summer of 1974,” he noted.

    “This summer is dominated by the faces of the summer of 1974. No matter how old they are passed, wherever we are, they remain the unshakable point of reference for every Cypriot, for every Greek. They are etched into our collective psyche, stamped into our minds, anchored in our memory. 50 years later, these images are a memory of the past, while remaining present and contemporary. Because Cyprus and its people continue to experience occupation and division, in violation of their basic human rights. In complete disregard of Public International Law and against any concept of values ​​that guide the International Community. Fifty years of Turkish rule is enough. And it must end. Our fixed goal remains the reunification of Cyprus” Mr. Kombos concluded.
