Cyprus Not Only Interested In Sanctions But Also In Finding A Solution, Says Defence Minister

Cyprus Not Only Interested In Sanctions But Also In Finding A Solution, Says Defence Minister

Cyprus' President Nicos Anastasiades has made it clear to the international community that the Republic of Cyprus is not only interested in sanctions, but also to find a solution to the Cyprus problem through dialogue, said on Sunday, the Minister of Defence Charalambos Petrides, in his speech at the annual Memorial Service of Heroes of the Anarita Community.
 


At the same time Petrides expressed disappointment over Turkey continued provocative and aggressive behaviour, with the recent opening of part of Varosha beach front and the continuing violation of international law in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and the Greek continental shelf. It is now a fact, he added, that Turkey “is escalating tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean region, provoking also a reaction from the international community, including the Security Council and the United Nations”.


 
"The President of the Republic has taken a series of actions to denounce Turkey`s illegal actions at the Security Council. He made it clear that we are not only interested in sanctions, but also to find a solution through dialogue that will ensure the peaceful coexistence and restoration of the rights of all legal residents of the island ", he added.
 


It is no coincidence, Petrides continued, “that both the European Union and our friendly countries in the region called on Turkey to respect Security Council Resolutions 550 and 789 and to take action to de-escalate tensions in the region but also to create conditions for the resumption of dialogue”. He noted that the Republic of Cyprus expresses its readiness to enter a new round of negotiations from where they stopped in Crans Montana in 2017, without creating faits - accomplis under pressure, unlike Turkey, which is increasing the tension in the region with its aggressive stance.
