23 April 2015

Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades has said that if independent candidate Mustafa Akinci is elected in the second round of the presidential elections, he is prepared to discuss Confidence Building Measures such as the opening of Varosha.

According to Greek Cypriot daily ‘Politis’ and other media, Anastasiades, who was speaking on a radio programme, touched on the presidential elections in the TRNC and responded to questions on the Cyprus problem and natural gas.

He said that if Akinci is elected he is prepared to discuss confidence building measures such as Varosha.

Anastasiades said that the solution of the Cyprus problem was a “life vision” for him and in the event of a solution, they could accept the possibility of transporting gas from Cyprus by pipeline across Turkey; however it would depend on certain investment aspects.
