Anastasiades: Not Possible to Survive Having as Guarantors Those who Invaded the Island

It is not possible to survive having as guarantors those who invaded us and Cyprus, as a European country, does not need guarantees nor does it need the presence of Turkish army and rights of intervention, President Nicos Anastasiades has said.

Speaking on Thursday evening at an event organised by the occupied municipality of Lysi, the President stressed that Europe and the UN provide mechanisms and after so many years the conditions are there for both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots to live peacefully in a reunited homeland, where they will respect the rights of each other and where everyone will feel safe.

The President said that it is inconceivable, at the same time, for the Turkish side to call for a military base in Cyprus and he wondered why do we need troops stationed on the island since we are not in any danger from any neighbouring countries with whom we enjoy excellent relations.

President Anastasiades pledged once again that we will continue to make every effort to the UN and the Secretary-General who, for the first time, acknowledged the importance of our persistence not to be in control by any third parties. He added that efforts will be made at the level of EU but also at the level of Islamic and other nations with which we have friendly relations, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

Referring to the latest round of UN talks in the Swiss resort of Crans Montana, the President said that we exhausted all efforts but Turkey`s intransigence left no room for any result.
