Christodoulides Addresses PSEKA, Decries One-sidedness of Cyprus Talks

Cyprus' Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides

Cyprus’ Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides addressed the 30th PSEKA Cyprus Conference in Washington on July 16.

Speaking about the latest round of re-unification talks he said “we cannot continue the endless discussions of the past, concentrating solely on chapters that interest the Turkish Cypriot side, such as power sharing, without discussing inter-dependently – as called for by the Joint Declaration – all chapters, including territory, security guarantees, citizenship and settlers.”

He said that “the proposals submitted by the Turkish Cypriot side, unfortunately, reveal a vision that contradicts the agreed UN framework of negotiations. This is not acceptable to us, it is not acceptable to the United Nations, and it is not acceptable to the United States or the European Union.”
