Tuesday 17 November, 2015 – The Armenian National Committee of Cyprus, condemns the recent acts of violence against our Turkish Cypriot compatriots and call upon the Government of Cyprus to take a firm stance on racist acts, wherever they may come from. Armenians in Cyprus believe in the common goal to re-unite our homeland and are actively participating in building bridges with all communities on the island.

The exemplary good relations that Armenians in Cyprus have had with all communities on the island, should serve as an example for everyone striving for a border-free society that is the homeland for all its citizens, in which violence has no place.

At the same time we reiterate our support to the efforts of President Anastasiades and Turkish community leader Akinci to bring about a just and viable solution that will respect all the fundamental rights and freedoms of each citizen and which will put an end to the ongoing occupation of the Republic of Cyprus.
