“All Greeks should be united and determined while offering their support to the struggles of the Cypriot Hellenism,” was underlined by main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras in a statement he made on Wednesday on the occasion of the 37th anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.
The ND leader said July 20th marks the greatest national tragedy in modern history and also serves as an international reminder of the true dimensions of the Cyprus problem, seen as a problem of invasion, occupation and illegal settlement in the occupied Cypriot territory.   
Samaras stressed that a solution should be reached within the framework of the UN decisions and the European acquis, adding that it should put an end to the fait accompli created by the invasion and lead to a united Cyprus without settlers and occupation forces; a solution that will be “really functional and viable, European and democratic”.
