Announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the 18th anniversary of the passing of Giannos Kranidiotis

Thursday, 14 September 2017

This day marks eighteen years from the tragic loss of Giannos Kranidiotis.

Giannos Kranidiotis was a distinguished figure among Greeks worldwide. A pioneer with innovative ideas, as well as a dynamic politician, he remained committed to the promotion of the interests of Greece and Cyprus. Having been one of the visionaries who ushered in the European course of the Republic of Cyprus, he decisively contributed, with systematic and quiet effort, in its accession to the European Union.

Today, at a critical juncture as regards the Cyprus issue, the diplomatic legacy of Giannos Kranidiotis continues to serve as a source of inspiration for Greek foreign policy. We shall continue, in close collaboration with the Republic of Cyprus, to faithfully serve his policy for a reunited Cyprus, free of occupation forces or intervention “rights”.
