FM Christodoulides Travels To Luxembourg, Turkish Illegal Activities In Varosha On The Agenda

FM Christodoulides Travels To Luxembourg, Turkish Illegal Activities In Varosha On The Agenda

Cyprus` Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides travelled to Luxembourg on Sunday to participate in the session of the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union on Monday.

A Foreign Ministry press release said under the current affairs item on the agenda of the Council it is foreseen that, among other things, the ongoing illegal activities of Turkey in the enclosed area of ​​Famagusta will be discussed, on the basis also of the relevant EU Declaration of 27 July 2021.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs will have the opportunity to brief his counterparts on the recent unlawful activities of Turkey in the EEZ of Cyprus.

Under the same item, the latest developments in Afghanistan, the Western Balkans, as well as Climate Diplomacy will also be discussed, the latter in view of the forthcoming COP26 Conference to be held in Glasgow.

Earlier on in the session, the Ministers will focus on the European Union`s relations with the countries of the Gulf and the prospects for their further enhancement, as well as on the Eastern Partnership, especially in view of the Ministerial meeting that is expected to take place in November in preparation of the Summit that is scheduled for the month after.

The Foreign Ministers are also expected to exchange views on the latest developments in Ethiopia, focusing on the need for humanitarian assistance.

Before the start of the Council`s session, Christodoulides will attend a working breakfast hosted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece, Nikos Dendias, with the participation as a guest of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Libya, Najla Mangoush.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Numerous UN-backed talks to reunite the island have failed to yield results.

UN Security Council resolution 550 (1984) considers any attempts to settle any part of Varosha by people other than its inhabitants as inadmissible and calls for the transfer of this area to the administration of the UN. Resolution 789 (1992) also urges that with a view to the implementation of resolution 550 (1984), the area at present under the control of the United Nations Peace-keeping Force in Cyprus be extended to include Varosha.

Turkish Cypriot leader, Ersin Tatar, announced in July 2021 a partial lifting of the military status in Varosha.

On October 8, 2020, the Turkish side opened part of the fenced area of Varosha, following an announcement made in Ankara on October 6. Both the UN Secretary-General and the EU expressed concern, while the UN Security Council called for the reversal of this course of action.
