1Cyprus, an initiative supporting the reunification of Cyprus, addressed a letter to President Nicos Anastasiades on Saturday in light of the upcoming informal five-party summit in Geneva.
The purpose of the letter was “to express our support for a solution that will reunite Cyprus in accordance with Security Council resolutions and our side’s officially declared positions”.
The letter calls on President Anastasiades to do “whatever is necessary” to ensure the positive development of the talks, so that an agreement is reached to transform the Republic of Cyprus into a bi-communal bi-zonal federation “with political and effective participation of the two communities”.
The organisers of the initiative, a group of five individuals, launched a petition earlier this month in support of the reunification of Cyprus, which was co-signed by 150 well-known Cypriots from different social and political backgrounds.
When launching the petition the organisers said they were guided “by genuine concern for the future of Cyprus, in view of the real danger of our country being permanently partitioned and running the future risk of the whole of Cyprus falling into the hands of Turkey”.
The petition has collected 6,000 online signatures since it launched.
