A Two-State Cyprus Solution Is Unacceptable, Mitsotakis-Anastasiades Say

A Two-State Cyprus Solution Is Unacceptable, Mitsotakis-Anastasiades Say

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades discussed the Cyprus problem and the intensification of Turkish provocations, during a bilateral meeting, on the sidelines of the Greece-Cyprus-Egypt Trilateral Summit held on Tuesday in Athens, stressing that a two-state solution in Cyprus is unacceptable.

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades thanked the Greek Prime Minister for Greece`s unreserved support, noting that the demands and preconditions for the resumption of negotiations set by the Turkish and Turkish Cypriot sides are unconceivable and unacceptable.

"The path we are following for a creative dialogue based on international law and UN Resolutions, is the only path. Any other path is a recipe for disaster," Anastasiades said.

"I sincerely wonder how much happier the Turkish people would be if the Turkish leader, instead of investing in an arms race, invested in the prosperity of his people. If instead of seeking to obstruct his neighbours he followed the rules of international law, like all other countries, with few exceptions," Anastasiades said.

"What we are interested in is to be given the opportunity to live in peace with our compatriots. To create a state away from dependencies, away from anachronistic guarantees, away from any occupying troops," President Anastasiades stressed.

Finally, he underlined the importance of all trilateral and regional cooperation mechanisms to which Cyprus and Greece participate, stressing that these are part of the effort to enhance regional stability and peace.

Welcoming President Anastasiades to the Maximos Mansion, the Greek Prime Minister referred to the intensification of Turkish provocations, which, he said, "give rise to strong concern and indignation for a behaviour that completely departs from the framework of an agreed solution for the resolution of the Cyprus problem."

"I want to repeat what I had the opportunity to emphasise during my recent visit to Nicosia, that a two-state solution is unacceptable and we cannot deviate from the essence of the framework as defined by the UN Security Council resolutions," the Greek Prime Minister said.

Expressing Greece`s full support to Cyprus, Mitsotakis noted that Greece always retains the possibility to raise the issue of Turkish provocativeness, as it did at the recent Council of Foreign Ministers, especially when it concerns energy projects funded by the European Union and carried out by European states.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied the island`s northern third. Numerous rounds of talks under the UN aegis to reunite the island under a federal roof failed to yield results.
