PD: Determination to participate in Pentamers without conditions

A message to Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot side that if they really want a peaceful settlement of the Cyprus problem, they should help not to satisfy Turkey's demands, but, above all, those of all Cypriots, addressed today the President of the Republic, Nikos Anastasiadis .

Speaking after meeting with Slovenian Foreign Minister Andrzej Logar at his home in Limassol, President Anastasiadis said that the meeting with the Slovenian official took place “in view of the Slovenian presidency (in the EU) during the second half of the year.” of the year. A dialogue that focused mainly on the EU's obligations towards all the Member States, in view of a critical turning point in the Cyprus problem.

As you well know, in addition to the visit of the British Foreign Secretary, the current visit of the Slovenian Foreign Minister, on Monday I will meet with the Prime Minister of Greece, possibly within a week I will be in Israel, while within the days the Supreme will be (here) EU representative to consult on how to take advantage of this great situation, taking into account the intention of the UN Secretary General to convene an informal meeting on the Cyprus issue after three years, in order to find common ground to resume a creative “I hope a dialogue that will lead to a final peace through the resolution of the Cyprus issue, which will of course always be based on the principles of the UN, the EU, always with rules that govern the functioning of the state within a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation.”

Asked what is the message for the will of our side to both Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots in view of the convening of this meeting, the President of the Republic said that “what I convey to all our interlocutors is one: Our determination and political will to participate in an informal meeting without preconditions.

Of course, when the time for a meaningful dialogue comes, full alignment with UN rules is required, in order to create the conditions for a creative dialogue.

The message is, I repeat, our readiness to participate not just in the informal, but in a substantive dialogue based on the announcement of 25 November 2019 which defined the parameters that are none other than the joint statement of 11 February 2014, the convergences that had been achieved until then, but also of the six points, of the parameters of the Secretary General.

This is my message to both Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot side. If they really want a peaceful solution, but they also have a sincere willingness to contribute, so that the conditions for real coexistence with our Turkish Cypriot compatriots exist, they should help not to satisfy the demands of Turkey, but mainly of the Cypriots, either Greek Cypriots or Turkish Cypriots “.
