  • [01] Foreign Ministry responds to Turkish FM announcement

    The elimination of the anachronistic system of guarantees and the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Cyprus are sine qua non conditions for a just and viable resolution of the Cyprus issue, a Greek Foreign Ministry announcement said on Thursday, adding that "the invasion and the ongoing presence of the occupation army in Cyprus are sources only of instability, insecurity and suffering for all the residents of the island. Once again, Ankara appears not to want to respond to the question of whether or not there are putschists among the occupation forces".

    The announcement was a response to the Turkish Foreign Ministry, which said earlier today that a statement by Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias on August 2 was "an unfortunate approach" and adding that "we expect from Greece, as guarantor country, to adopt a constructive and realistic approach".

    Kotzias' full statement on August 2 is as follows: "The information coming to light regarding the involvement of the leadership and officers of the occupation forces in Cyprus in the attempted coup in Turkey confirm and bolster, even further, our longstanding position that the elimination of the anachronistic system of guarantees and the withdrawal of the occupation forces are fundamental conditions for the resolution of the Cyprus issue, as the need for their removal from Cyprus is being demonstrated once again."
