Even though no such invitation was extended, the party said, if such a call is received, “AKEL’s general secretary will respond positively to convey the standing principled positions of the Greek Cypriot side on the Cyprus settlement as set by the National Council, ” said an announcement.

At the interview, Cavusoglu also called President Nicos Anastasiades “his personal friend” and said that Anastasiades was determined to reach a solution.
