Difficulties in Cyprus talks remain, but we have the political will to continue, the Government says

Demands by the Turkish side at the Geneva Conference on the Cyprus problem last January and onwards have led to difficulties in the UN-led peace talks, Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos has said. He pointed out however that the Greek Cypriot side will continue to show political will and will keep trying with all means available for progress in the negotiations for the reunification of Cyprus. Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides expressed on Monday hope that the momentum will return to the Cyprus settlement talks, now that the Turkish referendum has been concluded. He also said that possible reintroduction of the death penalty in Turkey would be a very serious development.
