Talks regarding the Cyprus Issue and the division of the island are due to be held next week in Switzerland. President Anastasiades has stated that reaching an agreement with the North depended on Turkey’s will on the issues of 3 principal issues: security, guarantees & territory. Furthermore, he alleged negotiations had to be structured in accordance with international law, to ensure the full independence of an EU Member State. “Consequently, any conditions set, I do not believe they are helping us in what we are seeking to achieve” his tone remained skeptical.
