Yorgos Lukaidis, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of AKEL, indicated that they are against both situations; Cyprus in NATO and NATO in Cyprus.
According to the news of the Greek Cypriot daily Haravgi, Lukaidis said that Cyprus is one of the most tragic victims of NATO. Pointing out that the NATO’s continuous target is to transform Cyprus to an unsinkable aircraft carrier, Lukaidis reminded that “NATO committed double murder in 1974 (against Cyprus).”
Putting forward the thesis about the solution of the Cyprus problem and “getting rid of the occupation”, Lukaidis said that struggling for complete demilitarization of the island constitutes the essence of the struggle against imperialism.
Lukaidis added that their steady thesis is “Neither Cyprus in NATO nor NATO in Cyprus”
