Former Turkish Cypriot President Mehmet Ali Talat has said that China, Russia and France have no business at the Cyprus international summit that will be held Geneva in January.

If they want to be informed, they will receive information; but they have no place at the negotiation table”, he stated. He added that the agreement to be reached would include the three guarantor countries, Turkey, the UK and Greece, and that if the UN Security Council was involved in the process, Cyprus could turn into Syria.

What is China’s interest on this issue? What is interesting for Russia or France? They did not play a positive role in Cyprus anyway. The participation of the permanent members of the UN Security Council is not acceptable,” he said.

Asked to comment on Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s presence at the summit, Talat said that it is extremely important and an indication of Turkey’s support for the negotiations. He added that Greece will have to participate in the summit at the same level as well. It is very possible that the summit will have a positive outcome at the end of this process, he noted.
