Presidential Commissioner for Humanitarian Issues and Overseas Cypriots Photis Photiou said on Monday that efforts for a Cyprus settlement are at a crucial junction and the outcome will emerge very soon.

Speaking at the funeral service of Panayiotis Hadjipanayiotou, a Greek Cypriot who until recently was included in the list of missing persons following the 1974 Turkish invasion, Photiou said that "we again expect Turkey to make the necessary steps, in order for these efforts to bear fruit". Thus, he went on, we will finally be able to enter another era together, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots alike, with more hope, especially for the youth.
