  • [01] SERBIA - CYPRUS - TALKS

    ิhe question of Cyprus is an issue of principle for Serbia and relates to support for Security Council resolutions and respect for the UN Charter and international law, Foreign Minister of Serbia Vuk Jeremic has said. In statements after a meeting here with Cyprus Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou, Jeremic referred to Kosovo, noting that Serbia considers the unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo void and it carries no legal or political meaning for us. Referring the same issue, Kyprianou said Cyprus does not recognise Kosovo. For us it is a question of principles, a question of preserving and safeguarding the territorial integrity of both countries. This is a UN principle, a principle of the Helsinki Final Act, of international law and having these principles as a basis we will never recognise Kosovo, Kyprianou added.

    Jeremic said it was a great honour for him to be the first minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia to pay an official visit to Cyprus. Our friendship goes a long way and we have a long history of friendly relations but it is only today that a Minister of Foreign Affairs is paying an official visit to the Republic of Cyprus. We had a fruitful conversation today. On the bilateral level we get an excellent relationship and we are going to continue building on this fantastic basis we have inherited from our predecessors, he added. Serbia considers the unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo void and it carries no legal or political meaning for us. For us the territorial integrity of Serbia remains intact, we are going to continue using our diplomatic work, he added.

    Kyprianou said they discussed various issues of mutual concern but also bilateral issues and European issues. The good cooperation, the good-friendly-brotherly relations between our two countries go a long way back since the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus and they continue as both our countries have gone through difficult times, still do and that brings us closer, Kyprianou noted. He said they discussed the Cyprus problem, adding that both he and President of the Republic Demetris Christofias, whom the Minister met earlier, had the opportunity to brief the Minister on recent developments and the beginning of a new procedure to help find a negotiated settlement in Cyprus, that would reunite the country, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.
