2002-08-19 10:19:37

Paphos, Aug 17 (CNA) -- House of Representatives President and acting President of the Republic Demetris Christofias has stressed that Cyprus sovereignty is single and indivisible.

Christofias also underlined that apart from expressing its readiness for a solution of the Cyprus problem the Greek Cypriot side should be decisive on issues that are not negotiable, such as sovereignty.

Sovereignty is indivisible and that is what the UN believes, he added.|

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory.
