View: Kudos for army service cut, but will it work?

CONGRATULATIONS to President Anastasiades for honouring his election promise to reduce the length of the army service.

    I don’t think that there will be a problem finding 3000 young Cypriots.

Furthermore, they could always open up the 3-5 year contracts to women as well. Why not?
