Cyprus solution is not to please Turkey

Cyprus House and DIKO party President Marios Karoyan has submitted to the President of the Republic thoughts and proposals with a view to strengthen the Greek Cypriot negotiating position as regards the Cyprus problem and create the circumstances so as the basis of the Greek Cypriot side’s positions to enjoy a bigger acceptance on behalf of the international community.

Speaking after a meeting with President Demetris Christofias, during which he was briefed on the latest developments of the Cyprus efforts and the meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, DIKO President noted that there are positive elements in the joint statement, issued after that meeting, adding there are also some points which are described as a “constructive ambiguity” causing reasonable concerns.

The “biggest danger there is”, according to the House President, for the Turkish side, “which all this period gave us samples of a fruitless, implacable policy” to utilize these ambiguities to promote its own strategic interests with the assistance of the “powerful” states.

“What is important is how we use these facts and how we assert our rights and how we strengthen our negotiating position so as, when there is progress at the level of the Working Groups and Technical Committees to allow to the two leaders at a given time to start full fledged negotiations”, the House President said.

He further noted that DIKO does not question the President’s political will or intentions, adding that there are also certain issues that could be raised in the joint statement but this “does not mean that we bargain our positions”.

''The solution must be viable one, that can last and serve Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots and not Turkey's strategic interests'', the House President said.

The leaders of the two communities, Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat met 23 May and reviewed results achieved pursuant to the 21 March agreement.

After the March 21 meeting, a number of working groups and technical committees have been set up with the task to deal with various aspects of the Cyprus problem and prepare the ground for substantive negotiations between the two leaders, in an effort to reach a political settlement that would reunite the country.
