Greek Cypriot Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides has said that President Eroglu’s road map for the Cyprus talks contravenes the joint declaration.
Asked to comment on Eroglu’s statements that he had submitted a road map to the UN, Christodoulides said, “the way the negotiations will proceed depends entirely on whether there is good will from both sides and on the proposals they will submit at the negotiating table in the third round of the talks.”
He said Eroglu’s proposal had been submitted in the past. “What is important is that this proposal is rejected by the joint declaration itself of the 11th February 2014.”
In the declaration, the leaders “expressed their determination to resume structured negotiations in a results-oriented manner”. They also agreed that a “settlement will be based on a bi-communal, bi-zonal federation with political equality, as set out in the relevant Security Council Resolutions and the High Level Agreements” and that “the negotiations are based on the principle that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”.
