2013-11-11 14:15:13

The President of the Republic Mr Nicos Anastasiades, said today that his definite and irrevocable position is that “I will not enter into a dialogue knowing that the preconditions set by the Turkish Cypriot side do not lead to a bizonal, bicommunal federation with political equality-a solution of dire necessity that we accepted-in order to be led to a confederation.” The President stressed that “I will not accept anything less than one and single sovereignty, one and single international personality and one and single citizenship.” President Anastasiades pointed out that the message he wants to send abroad and to the United Nations is that “the Greek Cypriot side is ready and determined to enter into a dialogue of substance. We are not interested in procedures and blame games. We want a solution and we are absolutely honest and determined about this.”
