President Mustafa Akinci’s spokesman Baris Burcu has urged the public not to pay heed to speculative reports that have emerged in the Greek Cypriot press regarding the conference on Cyprus in Geneva in January next year.
In a written statement issued yesterday, Baris Burcu repeated that the agreement, as announced by the United Nations, was that talks between the two sides will begin on 9th January leading to a five-party conference on 12th January with the participation of the three guarantor powers, Turkey, Greece and the UK.
“The solution of the Cyprus Problem, and the meeting of all five parties who are directly involved in the Cyprus Issue, will be sufficient to convene the conference on Cyprus,” he said, adding that other concerned parties could be invited to the table if the need arose.
Burcu said that any statements which contradicted this agreement reached between the sides were untrue.
He noted that speculative news reports, citing official sources, were being published and circulated on the Greek Cypriot side.
