PM Samaras: Greece and Cyprus in Full Agreement
Friday, 07 November 2014
The principle of a common view shared by Greece and Cyprus and of both countries coordinating their efforts "remains unchanged as a stable pillar and under any condition," Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said on Thursday in Nicosia, where he will be on an official visit until Friday evening.
Addressing a dinner given in his honour by Cyprus Republic President Nicos Anastasiades, Samaras expressed support for the island republic president's decision to suspend his participation in talks on the Cyprus issue. We support his decision to abstain in bicommunal talks until the conditions are right, Samaras noted.
Turkey has chosen a policy that "bears no relation to international law," he said, adding that Greece was observing the situation with caution. He also expressed the hope that the Turkish side works towards creating the circumstances for a restart in the talks.
