Greek Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos said “Cyprus issue is the top priority of Greece’s foreign policy.”
On the occasion of the anniversary of Turkey’s Cyprus Peace Operation of July 20, 1974, Venizelos said the economic difficulties that Greece faced has not affected its policy on Cyprus.
“The Greek government and its people continue to take side with Cyprus. Those who believe that economic difficulties in Greece and in Cyprus would change the Greek policy on Cyprus issue are gravely mistaken,” Venizelos said in a written statement.
Venizelos added that based on the resolutions of the United Nations, a fair, permanent and viable solution to unify the island and to settle the Cyprus issue was the top priority of the Greek foreign policy.
