Archbishop says all issues should be agreed between leaders before multi-party conference

Archbishop Chrysostomos

Archbishop Chrysostomos said on Sunday he was opposed to a multi-party conference outside Cyprus until all other aspects of the negotiations had been agreed.

The Archbishop was speaking at a service in Paralimni as the two leaders were meeting in Nicosia.

“The leaders must agree on other issues and then go to a multi-lateral conference,” he said, adding that if they didn’t do it that way, they could be influenced by the big powers when it came to the multi-party conference. Such a conferences is due to be the final stage of the negotiations that will decide on guarantees.

Chrysostomos said it was imperative that the Cyprus solution “have a Cypriot stamp” and therefore to keep that intact, there could be no conference outside Cyprus as long as there were other open issues between the two sides.

“Such a process should only be started if there is agreement between the two leaders in all matters and that such a conference would ensure the implementation of the solution from the first day,” he added.
