Christodoulidis lauds 20 years of Cyprus EU membership

President Christodoulidis has said the accession of Cyprus to the European Union was an extremely important event in contemporary history, and the culmination of a painstaking effort with extremely positive effects on the economic, political and social development of the country.

Speaking in the presence of the President of the Commission at last night’s event at the Presidential Palace for the 20th anniversary of Cyprus’s accession to the Union, Christodoulidis added that the accession of Cyprus brought enormous benefits in all aspects of human activity.
