Turkish media says Ankara asked Biden to pressure Greek Cypriots for faster progress

U.S. Vice President Biden meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Davutoglu in Istanbul

Ankara has asked the Americans to press the Greek Cypriot side to reach a solution by March, according to Monday’s Hurriyet.

The Turkish mainland newspaper said Ankara told US Vice President Joe Biden during his visit to Istanbul at the weekend that there were indications of delays on some critical issues in the negotiations due to the domestic policies of the Greek Cypriot side.

According to Hurriyet Cyprus was the third theme discussed the American vice president after Syria and Iraq.

Meanwhile, the Cyprus News Agency reported that the far-right Turkish newspaper Yeni Tsag said Biden had urged Turkey to make concessions on the Cyprus issue.

The Greek Cypriot side said on Saturday that it had expected Biden to raise the issues of security and guarantees with the Turkish leadership during his visit to Istanbul.
