Prodromos Prodromou: Turkey is Intervening to Prevent Understanding between the Leaders

Prodromos Prodromou: Turkey is Intervening to Prevent Understanding between the Leaders

Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Sunday, September 15 that Turkey is intervening to prevent Nicos Anastasiades, and Mustafa Akinci, from reaching an understanding that could lead to an agreement on the terms of reference, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

He also noted that Cyprus would use all diplomatic and political means to denounce and prevent the opening of Famagusta to settlement and that it would claim the continuation of the UN Secretary General’s initiative to resume the talks.

Speaking to the press after a national memorial service in Nicosia, Prodromou said that over the last two years Turkey has been trying to prevent the resumption of negotiations and seeks to scrap the Guterres framework, and particularly its provisions concerning the abolition of guarantees and the withdrawal of the Turkish army. 

Turkey claims the abolition of the sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus and is attacking the Republic of Cyprus at sea, while threatening to reopen Famagusta for settlement, he noted.

“Obviously Turkey is intervening at this moment to prevent the President of the Republic and the Turkish Cypriot leader from reaching an understanding that appeared to be possible for the terms of reference to be agreed upon”, he said.

Prodromou stressed that “we shall use all diplomatic and political means at our disposal to denounce and prevent the settlement of Famagusta but also to claim the continuation of the UN Secretary General’s initiative for the resumption of negotiations”.

Asked to comment the Turkish Foreign Minister’s claims in an interview with “Kathimerini” newspaper, he spoke of “inaccuracies and devious attempts on behalf Mr. Çavuşoğlu to create problems and cause rifts in the Greek Cypriot side”.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory.
