Foreign Minister says end of line for everything achieved if multipartite fails, calls for EU participation

Minister of Foreign Affairs Ioannis Kasoulides favours the participation of the EU in a multipartite meeting on the Cyprus issue, as long as the two sides are within reach of an agreement, and points out the importance of preparing properly for such a meeting.

Addressing a public discussion in Nicosia, organised by the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus on the EU on the international scene, Kasoulides said it would be a pity for such a meeting to take place and fail, as this would be “the end of the road” for everything achieved so far.

Replying to questions, he said the EU was very interested in the efforts for a Cyprus settlement, and expressed hope that the leaders of the two communities would give a role to High Representative Federica Mogherini.
