‘No solution without the return of Morphou’

For the Greek Cypriot side the return of Morphou is a prerequisite of any solution to the Cyprus problem, Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said on Tuesday.

In a written statement he said it has been “a long standing position of Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades that any action taking place during the Cyprus talks aiming to establish faits accomplis is unacceptable and will lead to not reaching a solution.”

In this context, he added, we believe that announcing development projects in Morphou “would be considered as an action establishing faits accomplis”.

President Anastasiades, Papadopoulos notes, “will raise the matter at the negotiating table.”

He concludes pointing out that “it is clear for President Anastasiades and the Greek Cypriot side that without the return of Morphou a solution could not be reached.”
