Turkey never discussed or accepted abolition of guarantees, President says

Turkey has never discussed or accepted the abolition of the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee, President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades said Saturday, commenting on a series of leaked documents concerning the 2017 UN-brokered negotiations over a Cyprus settlement in Crans Montana, Switzerland that ended in a deadlock.

“This is evident in the minutes of the meeting with the UN Secretary-General,” he said speaking to the press in Limassol.

Responding to a question whether he feels vindicated in the wake of the minutes published by “Phileleftheros” daily, Anastasiades said that what is important is the vindication of the Cypriot people.
