Conference in Crans-Montana a landmark for Cyprus issue, says Russian Ambassador in Nicosia

Russia’s Ambassador to Nicosia Stanislav Osadchiy has described the Conference on Cyprus that took place in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, as a landmark for the Cyprus issue, and reiterated his country’s support for a solution to the problem.

The efforts for a solution to the Cyprus problem will be continued. We only wish every success to those efforts, he concluded.

Stanislav Osadchiy was speaking to the press after a meeting he held at the Russian Embassy in Nicosia with President of Democratik Party and Candidate for the Presidency of the Republic Nicolas Papadopoulos.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern part. UN-backed talks that took place on June 28-July 7, in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, ended inconclusively. Peace talks aim to reunite Cyprus under a federal roof.
