Cyprus’ energy strategy being pursued as planned, says President
Cyprus’ is pursuing its energy strategy as planned, the President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades has said. He also pointed out that goodwill dictates proceeding to a dialogue for a Cyprus solution, without any preconditions.
Speaking to the press on Sunday following a mass to celebrate the Feast Day of St Maron in Nicosia, the President said that just because Turkey does not recognize the Cyprus Republic we are not going to give up our state sovereignty so that the talks can resume.
Invited to comment statements made by Turkish officials that there should be a moratorium on Cyprus’ energy programme for the dialogue to resume, the President pointed out that goodwill dictates that we attend the dialogue.
