North Cyprus Foreign Ministry said remarks by the Greek Cypriot leader, who said the talks should resume from the point where they left off in Crans-Montana, is “just hypocrisy”.
“Christodoulides was a key architect of the collapse of Crans-Montana talks”, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday following statements made on the Cyprus issue by Greek Cypriot leader Nikos Christodoulides during a mass in South Cyprus.
“As previous Greek Cypriot leaders, he is trying to cover up the truth,” it added.
The statement noted: “The remarks by Christodoulides, who put every effort into failing an important process, the Crans-Montana talks, has no significance”.
The statement continued:
“The remarks by the Greek Cypriot leader, a key architect of the collapse of Crans-Montana talks, in which he said talks should resume from the point they left off in Crans-Montana is just hypocrisy.”
“The Turkish Cypriot side has a new vision based on reaffirmation of the sovereign equality of the TRNC after the failure of the latest talks process aiming to find a federal solution. The Greek Cypriot leader should tell his people the truth that the TRNC’s new policy, supported by the Republic of Türkiye, will not change.”
