Μοscow Hopes Geneva Meeting Will Help Relaunch The Cyprus Negotiations

Μοscow Hopes Geneva Meeting Will Help Relaunch The Cyprus Negotiations

Moscow welcomed the UN Secretary-General’s initiative to hold an informal five-plus-one meeting dedicated to the Cyprus issue in Geneva on April 27-29 and hopes it will lead to the resumption of the Cyprus talks.

"We are closely following the preparations for this. It is a positive sign that all the interested parties have expressed readiness to attend it. We hope that the upcoming event will help relaunch the negotiations and find compromise solutions to problematic issues," Maria Zakharova, Spokesperson of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs during a press briefing.

According to the Ministry`s website, Zakharova said that Russia, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, "is categorically against the enforcement of any external ready-made formulas and temporary solutions."

"The Cyprus communities must be free to choose their own future. Our principled stance remains unchanged: we stand for a comprehensive, fair and sustainable settlement in the best interests of all Cypriots based on the generally recognised legal formula that provides for the creation on the island of a bizonal, bicommunal federation with a common international jurisdiction, sovereignty and citizenship," she said.

According to Zakharova, "the insistent advocacy by some capitals to change the current principles of a settlement from a federal to a two-state model is unacceptable. Any change of the basic parameters is only possible with the approval of the UN."

She went on to say that a major aspect of a settlement is the gradual demilitarisation of the island and the replacement of the obsolete system of external guarantees with the safeguards of the UN Security Council.
