The involvement of the EU in relation to the Euro-Turkish issues can provide the motivation, "another dimension to the efforts, among the many, that we are making, to restart the dialogue", said the former President of the Republic, Nikos Anastasiadis, after the end of National Council, the first under the presidency of Nikos Christodoulidis.
Asked about his presence at a National Council with another "host", Nikos Anastasiadis said that it does not matter.
"It is important that it is a National Council, in which we have considered the renewal of an initiative taken in the past, with a new dynamic and which I absolutely support, because I think that the involvement of the EU in relation to the Euro-Turkish can give the motivation , another dimension in the many efforts we are making to restart the dialogue,” he added.
When asked if he was satisfied with what he heard, Mr. Anastasiadis answered in the affirmative, saying that "they are completely consistent with the policies we have followed in the past and hence the involvement of the EU for the first time in 2015".
Elected, he continued, a new President brings a new dynamic proposal, especially considering what happened after the earthquakes in Turkey "and therefore it is something which, and I am happy to say that all the members of the National Council, even if some people have some reservations, do they think that we are heading in the right direction?
Answering a question if he gave any advice through his experience over the years, Nikos Anastasiadis said that he gave the his positions.
"I don't say I give advice. “I didn't get to the point of wisdom from being a counselor,” he concluded.
