No Foreign Troops Could Remain in Cyprus for Successful Solution of Cyprus Problem, Gov't Official Says

proedriko cyprusGovernment Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides has reiterated that no solution of the Cyprus problem could include the presence of foreign troops.
He made the statement to CNA in response to a report by Turkish Millet daily paper on a proposal by US official Victoria Nuland. The proposal by Nuland was on the establishment of an international gendarmerie after a solution in which Greek and Turkish soldiers would be able to participate.
“No solution of the Cyprus problem could stipulate the presence of foreign troops in Cyprus or any intervention rights for any third country,” he stressed.
At the same time he denied “categorically that President Anastasiades views in a positive light the possibility of Turkey guaranteeing the Turkish Cypriot component state.”
Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. UN-led talks resumed in May 2015 aiming to reunite the island under a federal roof.
