World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association call for just solution to Cyprus problem


The World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association (PADEE – WHIA) passed a resolution at its general assembly this year, calling on all parliaments to support a just solution to the Cyprus problem.

Cyprus has been illegally invaded, divided and occupied by Turkish forces since 1974, in violation of numerous United Nations’ Resolutions.

In the motion, the Association acknowledged it has been 49 years since this occupation and condemned the ongoing presence of Turkish troops in occupied northern Cyprus.

The motion was passed by members of PADEE – WHIA, which included eight Hellenic Australian parliamentarians. They were Former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia Michael McCormick; Federal Member for Adelaide, Steve Georganas; Federal Member for Calwell, Maria Vamvakinou; NSW Member for Miranda, Eleni Petinos; Victorian Labor MPs Lee Tarlamis, Nick Staikos, Steve Dimopoulos and Kat Theophanous; and SA State MP Olivia Savvas.
