Wednesday, 24 June 2015
President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Tuesday received visiting Cyprus House of Representatives President Yiannakis Omirou at the presidential mansion. In statements afterward, Pavlopoulos referred to the effort being made by overwhelming majority of democratic forces in Greece to keep the country in Europe and the Eurozone, but also to efforts to solve the Cyprus problem.
"In Greece, at this crucial hour, we are waging a battle and the overwhelming majority of democratic forces are fighting it together. Despite the various differences there may be, there is a common struggle for Greece to remain in Europe and the Eurozone," he said.
He noted that after the bitter experience of the memorandums that both the Greek and Cypriot people had experienced first-hand, Europe and the eurozone had acquired mechanisms that would allow them to be much more effective in responding to future crises.
Referring to the Cyprus issue, Pavlopoulos underlined that Greece remained at Cyprus' side, in spite of the difficulties it is facing, and "is strong enough...to support you in the effort to resolve the Cyprus problem."
