Menendez Upset With Comments of US’ Ambassador to Cyprus John Koenig

NEWARK – Senator Bob Menendez was strongly critical of recent comments made U.S. Ambassador to Cyprus John Koenig at the University of Cyprus where the latter said, “I do not regard the Cyprus problem as a problem of invasion and occupation.”

Sen. Menendez responded by saying:

“Cyprus is divided today because Turkey invaded and occupied the island over 40 years ago…this is an undisputed historical fact and the violation of Cypriot sovereignty is at its core most certainly a problem of invasion and occupation.  That is why I strongly oppose the comments of U.S. Ambassador Koenig on this difficult topic for the Greek Cypriot community and its leadership who are striving to achieve a peaceful and meaningful resolution to this conflict.  These remarks only complicate that effort to produce a lasting peace for all Cypriots and does not reflect U.S. policy or views.  Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region is poised for tremendous economic growth and opportunity, and these comments create additional challenges at a hopeful time that are unnecessary and regrettable.”
