5th Anniversary of the Death of Yiannos Kranidiotis, Republic of Cyprus
Description:At the time of his untimely death in a tragic plane crash in 1999, Yiannos Kranidiotis was Deputy Foreign Minister of Greece responsible for the Cyprus problem and European issues. Born in Nicosia in 1947 he studied Law at the University of Athens and completed his post- graduate studies in the United States and Great Britain. He was an ardent believer in Cyprus’ aspirations to join the European Union and as head of the team handling the Cyprus problem and EEC policies in Cyprus and Greece, he worked tirelessly and single -mindedly to promote and advance Cyprus’ case in Europe. In issuing this stamp to commemorate the 5th anniversary of his death on the very day that Cyprus became a full member of the European Union, Cyprus acknowledges its debt to him and honours a great patriot.
