    AKEL on Turkey’s actions in Cyprus

    Nicos Anastasiades must express his readiness to continue the negotiations from where they had remained at Crans Montana on the basis of Mr. Guterres’ Framework and preserving the convergences.

    Turkey is stepping up its actions in the Cypriot Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) with the activity of the Turkish drilling ship “Yavuz”. It is clear that Turkey will continue to exploit the prolonged stalemate on the Cyprus problem to create new serious fait accompli on the ground and in the waters.

    We denounce Turkey’s actions. The government must continue to call for practical support from the international community in its efforts to address Turkey’s actions.

    At the same time, the government must undertake specific and, above all, convincing initiatives to promote the goal which the international community points to like a way out of the tension created by Turkey. The goal must be the resumption of negotiations to conclude the effort that began in 2008 in order to reach an overall solution to the Cyprus problem. Within the framework of these initiatives, it is imperative that the Anastasiades addresses the UN Secretary-General and expresses his readiness to continue the negotiations from the point where they had remained at Crans Montana on the basis of Mr. Guterres’ Framework and by preserving the convergences.

    This is the UN Secretary General’s position which our side must be fully and clearly in line with. It is through the negotiations which, of course, for them to start Turkey must end its actions in the Cypriot EEZ, that we can reach a solution which will constitute the solid basis for solving the problems that Turkey is raising as a pretext to create tension and dangers.
