Anastasiades: CBMs Needed

Nikos Anastasiades, the President of the Republic of Cyprus, is emphasizing “the need to implement measures that will restore confidence, and not measures that increase mistrust among the legal citizens of the island, through actions that violate international law,” writes the CNA.

Anastasiades was speaking at the `Stelios Bi-communal Business Awards 2014″, in Nicosia, and said “unfortunately, the recent actions by Turkey serve neither the purpose of building confidence and trust, nor of establishing a constructive environment that can facilitate the negotiating process. On the contrary: they foster mistrust and raise serious doubts within the Greek Cypriot community as regards Turkey’s true intentions”.
