Greek FM says no to Turkey’s intervention rights and troops in a reunified Cyprus

Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias says Cyprus will need to have in the future friendly relations with neighbouring countries, without them retaining intervention rights or foreign troops on the island.

In an interview with the Sunday edition of “Politis” newspaper, Kotzias also notes that Turkey has much more to gain as a “force of peace”, instead of acting as a force of war and violence.

He also points towards the diplomatic activity, following fresh geopolitical and energy developments, and says that these may provide the rationale for Ankara to follow a “low key policy” and one that contributes to the solution of the Cyprus problem.
