“The Greek government continues to unequivocally support for reaching a just and viable solution of the Cyprus issue, a solution based on UN Security Council Resolutions and a solution compatible with the European acquis – namely, that of a bicommunal, bizonal federation. A solution to the Cyprus issue is the top priority of Greek foreign policy,” Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias stated in Nicosia after his meeting with his Cypriot counterpart Ioannis Kasoulides on Thursday.
Dendias said that Greece supports Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades’ proposals for Confidence Building Measures (CBMs). “We support these proposals despite the expected – and we are sorry for this – rejection of them by the Turkish-Cypriot side and we condemn any proposal for a two-state solution.
He said that they also discussed other matters, such as developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and cooperation in the EU in the light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
