South rejects any hint of timetables in the talks

The South’s government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides responded to President Akinci’s comments about time frames the Cyprus negotiations.

Akinci had said that after the general elections in the South in May, he expected there to be significant progress in the talks.

Speaking to reporters after a remembrance service for EOKA fighter Grigoris Afxentiou, Christodoulides said: “Since the start of the current effort we have heard about January, March and now June. There is and there never was a timetable issue. How the whole process will go depends solely on the results of the dialogue at the negotiating table.”

Christodoulides, said he could respond to Akinci’s statements point by point, but this was not going to help solve the Cyprus problem, which would not be settled through media interviews or grand statements.

“As repeatedly said, the Cyprus issue will be resolved at the negotiating table,” he said.
