Cyprus Foreign Minister: ‘Turkey to Blame if Cyprus Talks Fail’



cyprus-for-minIf the Cyprus negotiations fail, Turkey will bear the whole responsibility, if it insists on anachronistic solutions in regards to the security issue, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has stressed.

Speaking at an anti-occupation event on Saturday evening, organized by the Famagusta Municipality, Kasoulides said that Turkey is the only guarantor power, which still refers to the anachronistic system of guarantees, which is not acceptable by Cyprus, noting that the securities and guarantees chapter is the most crucial in achieving a solution on the island.

Referring to the UN led ongoing Cyprus talks, he said that for the first time they are Cypriot owned talks, while for the first time the two leaders proceeded in detail to four out of the six aspects of the Cyprus problem.
