Statements by the President of the Republic regarding foreign media reports on Cyprus
We neither underestimate nor downgrade what was brought to light last night, said the President of the Republic, Mr Nikos Christodoulides.
In his statements to journalists, when asked if a team of investigators would be set up to investigate the information that was brought to light last night, the President of the Republic said: “The Cyprus Government and I personally neither underestimate nor downgrade everything that has come to light. And this is a clear message from the Government and me personally.
Already, investigations have begun, and, as I said yesterday, the investigations will be concluded within a given timeline. And I repeat what I said yesterday, no one, absolutely no one, is above the reputation and the credibility of our country.
People are reading the reports in the international press today, and I must tell you that this in not something that made me feel proud. So, we are neither underestimating nor downgrading the situation, neither the Government nor I personally.”
