Samaras vows to stand by Cyprus in reunification talks

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has vowed to stand by the Cypriot government in its reunification talks with Turkish-Cypriots after meeting President Nicos Anastasiades in Athens on Monday.

“Greece and Cyprus will continue until the end our peaceful common struggle to overturn the fait accompli of the Turkish occupation,” Samaras said after the talks at the Maximos Mansion.

“Greece will continue to support the constructive efforts of the Republic of Cyprus and Nicos Anastasiades both in terms of the process and the essence of the negotiations to solve the Cyprus problem.”

Samaras also made reference to the need for stability in the wider region.

Anastasiades is due to meet opposition leaders in Athens on Tuesday.
