Reports by Turkish Cypriot dailies Kibris Postasi, Haber Kibris and Greek Cypriot online media tvonenews.com write that former US Ambassador to Nicosia, John Koenig has blamed Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades for the collapse of the negotiations.

Koenig, who reportedly posted a message on his Facebook account said: “There is plenty of blame to share around, but one person stands out as the cause of the impasse and collapse: Nicos Anastasiades. He never was the courageous, committed leader he claimed to be – not even in 2004 – but instead a self-absorbed small-time operator with grand ambitions and no spine. Anastasiades owns this failure, but many others will pay the price. (Maybe I should write that book I threatened to write when I left Nicosia!)”.
