There is No Plan B: Talat

The results of the Greek Cypriot presidential elections will demonstrate what type of Cyprus settlement the Greek Cypriots want, former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat has said.

Talat told Greek Cypriot daily ‘Politis’ that a real opportunity had been lost at the Cyprus Conference in Crans-Montana in July.

However, a solution must come only through negotiations. There was no such thing as Plan B, he said. Even if the two sides agreed to work outside the existing UN framework, they would still need to negotiate a solution.

Plan B, he said, could exist only in relation to negotiations, and not in relation to the future of the island.

He noted that the Turkish Cypriots had been greatly disappointed by the outcome of the Conference on Cyprus in July.
