During his remarks to the press, Çavuşoğlu reiterated that no result was reached at the talks held in Crans-Montana earlier this year, despite Turkey playing a constructive and solution-oriented role throughout the duration of the negotiations.

Çavuşoğlu said, “Turkey showed great sincerity in Crans-Montana, but unfortunately no result was reached.” He added that they evaluated the steps to be taken from now on and emphasised that any solution to be provided on the Cyprus issue will be for the benefit of everyone on the island.
