NICOSIA — Cyprus’ President says any deal to reunify the ethnically split Mediterranean island nation has to be markedly different to one that was rejected by his Greek-Cypriot community a decade ago.Nicos Anastasiades says another rejection in a future referendum would be “catastrophic” for Cyprus.Greek Cypriots turned down a United Nations brokered accord in 2004 that they saw as unfairly weighted against them.
