22 March 2016  

Following the brutal terrorist attacks today in Brussels, the Director General of OEB Michael Antoniou has sent the following message to the Director General of BUSINESSEUROPE Markus J.Beyrer:

Dear Markus,

The entire population of Cyprus is devastated by the brutal terrorist attacks against innocent people at Zaventem Airport and the two EU district metro stations, which claimed the lives of dozens and caused serious injuries to many more.

The paranoid beasts who designed, instructed and carried out these monstrous atrocities, will be defeated by the superiority of our civilization and our determination to safeguard our common home, “Europe United”.

On behalf of my President, managers, members of the staff and myself, please convey to all our colleagues at BUSINESSEUROPE and their families, our warmest support at this difficult moment.

Many thanks,
