EU – Josep Borrell: “Progress in Cyprus talks more important than ever”

Must read

EU - Josep Borrell:

The Cyprus issue is a problem of the EU, says the High Representative of the European Union, Josep Borrell, in his blog, while noting that the Cyprus issue is also important for the wider relations between Turkey and the European Union.

“The current effort to resume peace talks does not start from scratch. We can rely on a legal framework and convergences from previous negotiations “, underlines Josep Borel and adds:” The solution to the Cyprus problem cannot come from outside. The responsibility for finding a solution lies primarily with the Cypriots. We know it is going to be a complicated process, but during my meetings, I was encouraged by the readiness of both President Anastasiadis and Turkish Cypriot leader Tatar to contact the UN to find common ground on the way forward. . At the same time, Mr. Borel states that “the EU is ready to provide any assistance that both leaders and the United Nations find useful.”

“The Cyprus issue is clearly a problem for the EU: Cyprus is a member state of the Union, now and after reunification. “Regional stability and prosperity in the Eastern Mediterranean is closely linked to the settlement of the Cyprus issue,” he said. “The Cyprus issue is also important for the wider relations between Turkey and the European Union.” These relations are approaching a turning point after a particularly difficult year 2020: the relative calm we are currently experiencing at sea in the Eastern Mediterranean and in matters related to the settlement is fragile. “Progress in the Cyprus talks is more important than ever.”
