Çavuşoğlu :  “We must first decide what we will negotiate”

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu came face to face in New York with the Greek Cypriot Administration Foreign Minister Nikos Hristodoulidis, who brought up the subject of a federation in Cyprus.

Çavuşoğlu responded : “Your leader rejected this. We must first decide what we will negotiate. What will we negotiate, two governments, or something else?”

Upon this response Hristodoulidis explained the following: “It is clear on what we will negotiate. There is only one solution, a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation. Forget two governments or a confederation”.

Çavuşoğlu replied : “Last time, at Crans-Montana, your leader put forth the confederation. Last year Anastasiades said, at times “federation” and at other times a “confederation”. We must first openly discuss what we will negotiate. We have always been the side for years which tried to find a solution, both with the Annan Plan and at Crans-Montana”.

  1. The Greek Cypriot side appears to be lost in a maze of their creations.
    They do not appear to be aware of a logic other than blaming everyone for wrong doings.
    It is a shame that the rest of the world is in love with them.
    I honestly cannot see anything that is lovable. I would love to know what the joke is all about.
