Turkey is attempting to create problems between [South] Cyprus and Greece, according to the South’s Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides, ‘Famagusta Gazette’ reports.

Speaking on the side lines of a conference on “The New Turkey, EU and Cyprus” that was held in Nicosia, Christodoulides made his accusation because at a High Level Strategic Council meeting between Greek PM Antonis Samaras and Turkish PM Davutoglu in Athens last week, Davutoglu had suggested that Turkey and Greece form a joint monitoring committee on the issue of hydrocarbons.

The High Level Strategic Council was launched by Turkey and Greece in 2010 to enhance relations between both countries.

Christodoulides said that: “we have been briefed by the Greek Government on what happened in Athens and it is obvious through the statements by Mr Davutoglu that he is trying to create a problem in the relations of Athens and Nicosia, in particular, through his reference about a joint monitoring committee between Greece and Turkey on the issue of hydrocarbons”.
