Cypriot diplomatic missions active at highlighting Turkish provocations, MFA spokesperson tells CNA

Heads of Cyprus’ diplomatic missions abroad are taking steps in order to highlight Turkish provocations, Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Demetris Demetriou, told CNA.


Referring to yesterday’s statement by the President of the Republic that all the necessary steps are taken in every direction, “the Secretary General of the United Nations not excluded”, Demetriou said the missions were engaged in horizontal diplomatic steps, towards all countries and governments, in order to “highlight Turkish provocations and actions Turkey engages in, at the expense of Cyprus, but also to take initiatives in order to prevent further attempts aiming to create a fait accompli.”


He noted that the process, which started about ten days ago, is ongoing and will soon wrap up.


Cyprus has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion. Numerous talks under the UN aegis failed to yield results. The latest round of negotiations took place in the summer of 2017 in the Swiss resort of Crans Montana.
