The annual military exercise ‘Toros’ has been cancelled once more, as negotiations for a Cyprus settlement continue.

President Akinci’ spokesman Baris Burcu issued a written statement saying that the decision was taken in consultation with the Turkish authorities.

Toros is a joint military exercise of the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) and the TRNC Security Forces Command, held every year in response to the Nikiforos military exercises of Greece and Greek Cyprus.

Both sides have been cancelling military exercises in mutual agreement since 2008, soon after a new round of negotiations to unify the island began.
