No return of Maras before talks begin: Eroglu

Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Afrika’ newspaper reports that President Dervis Eroglu has denied the story published on Monday by ‘Afrika’, which alleged that the return of Maras would definitely take place and that this is expected to happen before the end of the year as a result of instructions from the USA to Turkey and from Turkey to Cyprus.

Eroglu sent a written statement to ‘Afrika’ arguing that the paper’s information “has absolutely no relation with the reality”. Eroglu said, amongst other things, the following: “The stance of the Turkish side as regards Varosha [Maras] has not changed. Our expectation is for Greek Cypriot leader Mr Anastasiades to come to the table to continue the negotiations from the point we remained with Mr Christofias.

 We are ready for sitting at the table with good will for an overall solution in Cyprus and for a solution on the basis of the existing realities in Cyprus. If the Greek Cypriot side has the same will, there is absolutely no reason for not reaching a solution in 2014″
