CNA - Cyprus/NICOSIA 21/01/2020 11:49

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has said that an absolute principle for a solution of the Cyprus problem would be the guarantee human rights and the viability of the solution, through the functioning of the state, adding that if this is not so, things would be much worse. 

President Anastasiades was addressing an event commemorating the first President of the Republic of Cyprus, the late Archbishop Makarios, on Monday evening.

"I have made every humanly possible effort and I will do even more as long as there is mutual respect," he said, adding that it should not just be our side which respects the concerns of Turkish Cypriots but also that they should on their part comprehend that there are international principles and not just Ottoman exhortations about principles.
