Tsipras to Attend Cyprus Talks Only if There's A Possibility for A Solution

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Monday he will attend the Geneva talks on Cyprus only if it becomes apparent that negotiation are moving towards a solution. 
“The issue now is, as soon as we have the first indications on the state of play of the negotiations in Geneva, we will have a better picture on whether we will be represented at a prime ministerial level, or if the foreign ministers will take over,” Tsipras told government coalition partner and ANEL leader Panos Kammenos, during talks before the cameras. 
“The positive thing is, and I reiterated this in my phone call to the Turkish president, that what is important is to see how far we can go. If it appears that a solution is likely, I am willing to attend in Geneva. If not, then the foreign ministers should take over to push talks as far as they can go,” he added. 
He said this is an important achievement as it will allow Greece to fight for a solution “without having our backs against the wall”.
