The President of New Democracy Party of Greece, Antonis Samaras, has stressed that the Cyprus problem is a top priority for the Greek government, despite the huge difficulties his country is facing because of the economic crisis.

Speaking after a meeting he had on Monday with the President of the Republic, Demetris Christofias, in the framework of his visit to Cyprus, Samaras said that “Cyprus and Greece are two independent states, however the two countries belong to the same nation”, adding that he feels truly moved being in Cyprus.

He emphasized the need for a solution to the Cyprus problem that will be viable and just and will end the island’s Turkish occupation.

The President of New Democracy also said that during the meeting with President Christofias, they discussed the latest developments regarding hydrocarbon exploration in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
