Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu has said that he called President Nicos Anastasiades to say that if he does not want a solution [to the Cyprus problem] they will finish this job.

Cavusoglu, in an interviews with Turkish daily Milliyet said:

“Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades is my personal friend. He supported the Annan plan. He is still hiding behind it. Do not hide behind it, take the lead. Show that you want a solution now, be brave. If you start show weakness due to political concerns, elections, then even a small party like ELAM will grab you by the leg and drag you into the squares.

“As a friend, I warned Anastasiades. Do not follow these populist parties. If Anastasiades does not want a solution, let him say so and we will finish this job. If the talks become unsuccessful, we will sit together with the TRNC and we will decide. At this moment no decisions have been made.”
