NICOSIA, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Cyprus’ government attached great significance to the development of comprehensive ties and relations of friendship between the Cypriot and Russian peoples, Cyprus’ President Demetris Christofias said on Tuesday at a meeting dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Cyprus-Russia Association of Friendship and Cultural Ties.
“We shall continue building our relations on a solid base laid down fifty years ago,” Christofias stressed. “Our goal is to develop bilateral relations cemented by sincere time-tested friendship and solidarity.”
The Cypriot president thanked Russia for its efforts as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council aimed at defending independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of his country.
According to Christofias, the cooperation between the two countries is not confined merely to the political sphere. They maintain dynamically developing ties in such areas as finance and investments, tourism, trade, and culture. He also praised the activity of the 60,000-strong Russian-speaking community in Cyprus.
