Cyprus to denounce Oktay’s entry to Varosha

Labour Minister Kyriakos Koushos

The entry by Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay to the fenced-off town of Varosha, will be denounced at the Security Council and to the UN Secretary-General, government spokesman Kyriacos Koushos has said in a written statement on Saturday.

According to the announcement, the president and the government “condemn and denounce, in the strongest and most emphatic way, the new provocative action of Turkey, to send the vice president of the Turkish government to the occupied areas, and in particular his entry into the fenced-off city of Famagusta”.

“This is clearly a provocative and illegal act that violates UN Security Council resolutions. The action of the Turkish Vice President will be denounced at the Security Council and the UN Secretary General,” Koushos said.

Such “illegal and provocative actions” were in contradiction with what the UN Secretary-General asks for the creation of an appropriate climate in order to take the initiative to resume talks for the settlement of the Cyprus problem from where they stopped in Crans-Montana, and according to what was agreed in Berlin, by President Nicos Anastasiades the former Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, he added.
