Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades says he is ready to continue taking an active part in the Cyprus negotiations, provided that there is mutual respect between both sides and that there is no repeat of the Istanbul incident.

A phone call made by UN Secretary Ban ki-Moon to Anastasiades has smoothed the path to resuming the talks.

From the UN announcement, some explanations have been given with regards to the incident in Istanbul – in which an attempt was made to legitimise the illegal occupation regime,” a government announcement read.

According to a statement issued by the UN after the phone call, Ban expressed his full confidence in his Special Advisor Espen Barth Eide and encouraged both community leaders in Cyprus to intensify their efforts reunify Cyprus.

Cyprus Weekly concludes its report by writing that “mutual trust between all parties in the settlement negotiations is at an all-time low with every move viewed with suspicion”.
