Anastasiades: Good Relation Between Greece and Turkey Will Contribute to the Solution of the Cyprus Problem

January 11, 2021

NICOSIA — A good relationship between Greece and Turkey will also contribute to the solution of the Cyprus problem, President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades said on Monday.

In the second part of the interview he gave to the newspaper "POLITIS", and which was published on Monday (11/01/2021), President Anastasiades answered the question whether he will support the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in case Greece and Turkey end up in a settlement in the Greek-Turkish issue, without a solution to the Cyprus problem.

Anastasiades was asked: "Greece and Turkey are proceeding to talks independently of the Cyprus issue. If they reach a settlement in the Greek-Turkish issues without a solution to the Cypriot problem, will you support Mr. Mitsotakis?"

And he added: "Why not support him? I hope that their relation is restored. A good relationship will also contribute to the solution of the Cyprus problem."


ANKARA - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavuşoğlu said Greece and Cyprus are harboring terrorist groups targeting his country and directed threats at the Greek-Cypriot government if there are any attacks on Turkey or the Turkish-Cypriot side.
