The targeting, among other things, for the development of coexistence and cooperation skills set by the Ministry of Education and Culture, should be extended to the inter-community level, so that a culture of peace and cooperation is established and Cyprus is an example of peaceful, multicultural coexistence and therefore a factor of stability in the region. Education has a primary role to play in this task.
