Written statement by the Government Spokesman Mr Nikos Christodoulides

At the time an effort is being undertaken for the continuation of the talks, the unacceptable remarks of the President of Turkey are in no way helping towards this direction.

In the same framework, neither the threats contribute in the restoration of trust and the creation of the right atmosphere.

As a response to such remarks, we repeat our determination for the continuation of the dialogue, in order to achieve, the soonest possible, the termination of the occupation and the reunification of our homeland, not on terms and conditions that serve the interests of either side or any third country, but through a solution that will meet the expectations of the entire people of Cyprus.
