Πρ. Anastasiadis on Erdogan announcements: I will respond when I find out - Attempt to alter the status quo is unacceptable

The unity and the continuous effort through the “weapons” offered by the international law, the EU and the principles of law in general are the way to prevent the aspirations of Turkey, said today the President of the Republic Mr. Nikos Anastasiadis.

Speaking to reporters after the memorial service for the victims of the Turkish invasion at the Apostle Barnabas Cathedral in Nicosia, the President said that today “is a day of remembrance for what happened before and after the treacherous coup.” It is a day of remembrance for the occupied areas of our homeland, a day of remembrance for the mistakes we committed but also for the illegal actions that continue to exist.

It is also a day of honor for those who gave their lives fighting for democracy and constitutional order, territorial integrity and freedom of our homeland.

A day of honor for those who are ignored after battles on the battlefields or otherwise for those who, however, fell while fighting. At the same time, day reflections on how we are dealing with the escalating Turkish intolerance and how we are preventing Turkey's aspirations.

That is why the appeal, the way, the way is none other than the unity and the continuous effort through the 'weapons' offered by the international law, the EU, more broadly the principles of law “.

Asked to comment on the Turkish Cypriot leader's announcements for a partial lifting of the military regime in Varosi, the President said: “I can not comment, I do not have in mind what exactly Mr. Tatar said or announced or what Mr. Erdogan said. I will answer when I know.

Certainly if something similar was announced it is unacceptable. It alters or is an attempt to alter the status quo of Famagusta as defined by resolutions 550 and 789 and our reactions will be similar “.

Asked to comment on the Turkish demand for two states in order to resume the dialogue on the Cyprus issue, the President said that “it would be easier for me to set as a condition before the start of the negotiations the end of the guarantees, the withdrawal of the occupying troops, the territorial adjustments and what has finally been done to the detriment of the Greek Cypriot community. Therefore, it is not who sets the prerequisites. It is not just what the Turkish Cypriots will get. “Finally, they are what they are ready to accept under international law.”
