The decision for the declassification of the documents was announced by the Greek Alternate Minister of National Defense, Panagiotis Rigas, during his meeting with the President of the Hellenic Parliament Nikos Voutsis. As Alternate Minister Rigas explained, the expert committee of the National Defense General Staff, who examined the content of the documents, concluded that they could be declassified in order to be included in the Cyprus File.
