Cyprus looks forward to the continuation of the common course with Greece with the election of the President of the Hellenic Republic, Procopis Pavlopoulos.
In a congratulatory message to the newly elected President, the President of the House of Representatives Yiannakis Omirou said “Cyprus looks forward to your presidency with confidence”.
Congratulating Pavlopoulos on his election, Omirou said Cyprus is looking forward to continuing the common course on the Cyprus problem with Hellenism in order to end the illegal Turkish occupation and achieve a solution, based on the principles of international and European law.
Cyprus has been divided since 1984 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied the island`s northern third.
