    The Cyprus problem cannot be associated with Turkeys European obligations, stressed Deputy Minister to the President and Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardes, noting the Greek Cypriot sides readiness for dialogue which must be suitably and sufficiently prepared in order not to fail.

    Asked about the deadlock on Cyprus, he said that if Turkey is not willing to consent, then the deadlock will continue. He said that bearing in mind that any progress on Cyprus depends on the good will and political will of the two sides, if one of the sides appears unwilling to cooperate, then the deadlock remains, and the Turkish side will be wholly to blame.

    Invited to comment on statements by Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn that the two leaders of the two communities in Cyprus should use some sauna diplomacy to move forward the Cyprus issue, Pashiardes said if such a statement is valid, then the only thing I can think of is that the leaders of the two communities should intensify their efforts to the point of sweating in order to achieve progress on Cyprus.

    Our side has no problem sweating during such procedure, bearing in mind the high temperatures prevailing in Cyprus. Perhaps the Turkish side has a problem, since all efforts for a Cyprus settlement are based on the rejection of the Annan Plan, he added.
