Hope for peace in Cyprus

Around 200 people belonging to a bi-communal movement consisting of more than 70 non-governmental organisations and associations from both sides of the divide on Saturday demanded the immediate settlement of the Cyprus problem and reunification of the island.

The NGOs visited President Mustafa Akinci and told him that his election brought hope for peace in Cyprus.

Akinci said the road towards a solution was not straightforward and the reunification procedure had its ups and downs.

However, he said there were reasons to be optimistic as he expressed his conviction that the talks will end in success.

The NGOs then marched to the presidential palace where they delivered a memo asking for reunification to President Nicos Anastasiades.
