We do not stop acting in every way to ensure the rights of the legal residents of the enclosed city of Famagusta and other areas, said today the President of the Republic Nikos Anastasiadis at the inauguration of the Volunteer monument in Limassol.
Speaking to reporters in Limassol, he was told that “from the beginning of the announcement by the Turkish authorities and their occupant, Mr. Tatar, of a call for the resettlement of the residents, property owners in the enclosed area, we had warned that it was a trap.” . Hence the small area, the so-called pilot area, which after being diagnosed as not belonging to the area where EFKAB illegally claims ownership was given as a first measure, as a temptation to attract Greek Cypriots to appeal to the commission.
The acceptance as an interested party of EFKAB, is only a reaffirmation of a decision issued earlier and which considered that EFKAB has ownership in the areas where it claims in the enclosed area. Therefore, caution is needed, despite the sirens that said the opposite today, those who called and insisted for the legal residents to appeal to a committee for immediate compensation or return of ownership of their property are refuted “.
Asked if the Government is concerned about this situation, he said that “because we are concerned we do not stop acting in any way to ensure the rights of those covered by Resolutions 550 and 789, ie the owners and legal residents of the enclosed city and not only that but and other areas. We are taking initiatives and we will continue to insist that there be justification through the diplomatic channel “.
Asked about the appointment of a special envoy of the UN Secretary-General, the President said that “there is nothing new. You are well aware that we had accepted the position of the Secretary General, the refusal of Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots shows who is responsible for the lack of dialogue, the wreckage of the occasional talks. I hope that the efforts we make will succeed “.
He added that the terms of reference to be given should be such as to finally create a climate or conditions for the resumption of dialogue so that a dialogue can finally resume leading us to a functional, sustainable solution, always based on the Summit Agreements and resolutions. of the UN.
Asked what his next steps will be, the President said that “it will be the presentation of a comprehensive proposal to the European Council on the need for initiatives on the part of Europe and on the solution of the Cyprus problem and on the adoption of substantial CMOs that will first restore confidence.” really and secondly they will pave the way for a new creative dialogue “.
