“Mustafa Akinci's interview with the Yeni Duzen newspaper is revealing enough, both for Turkey's long-standing goals and for the reasons that led to the collapse of the Crans Montana Conference on Cyprus,” a written statement said. President Anastasiadis.
He notes that “at the same time, with what Mr. Akinci states about the Berlin agreement, he demonstrates that I have not stopped, since the day after the failure of the Cyprus Conference in 2017, to seek the resumption of talks from the point which were interrupted in Crans Montana “.
At the same time, notes Nikos Anastasiadis, any narratives that wanted to attribute the failure to Crans Montana and to this day, to our side, are refuted.
“I want to reiterate my determination and political will to assist the Secretary-General's efforts to resume talks, but not on the basis of the prerequisites demanded by Tatar or Turkey,” he said.
“A new round of talks on the basis of common ground is possible, as defined by the High Level Agreements, but also by the United Nations resolutions that define the terms of office of the Secretary General,” concludes Nikos Anastasiadis.
