    Anastasiades saddened over latest statements by Turkish FM

    Nicos Anastasiades said on Monday that he was saddened to hear about the latest statements by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, noting that “they convey in essence the message that the Turkish side is not returning to the negotiating table if the requirements it is putting forward are not met.”

    In a written announcement, Anastasiades noted moreover that with Turkey’s threats and the conditions Ankara is setting there can be no positive climate, but these actions rather taint efforts of the UN Secretary-General’s.

    Reiterating his resolve ahead of a tripartite meeting with the UN Secretary-General, next week in Berlin, President Anastasiades also underlined the stated political will of the Greek Cypriot side to conclude the terms of reference in order to create the conditions of a creative dialogue to conclude to a truly functioning and viable Cyprus settlement, in line with UN resolutions and without guarantors, foreign troops or dependencies.

    Our goal was and remains the creation of a truly independent and sovereign state, safeguarding the human rights of all Cypriot people, Greek Cypriots, and Turkish Cypriots, on the basis of EU principles, the President concluded.
