Anastasiades: Eide’s References to Possible Escalation of Tension are Unacceptable

President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades has described remarks made by the UNSG’s Special Advisor on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide as “unacceptable”: Eide said that the best way to avoid “a hot situation” in relation to energy issues this summer is to resume negotiations.
The President also said he has already told Eide in person that he considers these kind of references “unacceptable, in particular when expressed in a way which is tantamount to threats.”
Asked what one could expect from Eide’s meeting today with Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, President Anastasiades said he expects an outcome from the meeting and also to see the extent to which Turkey is ready to contribute so that any future conference on Cyprus will produce results.
