Occupied municipalities ‘will not accept’ two state solution


The Committee of Occupied Municipalities said on Monday that Turkish-occupied municipalities on the island will never accept a two-state solution or a confederation that will seal the division of Cyprus.

In a statement, the committee also expressed concern over the fact that Turkey is now openly presenting their divisive demands for a solution to the Cyprus problem, which differs from the framework outlined in various resolutions of the United Nations.

“These claims also ignore the fact that Cyprus is a member state of the European Union and therefore the solution should be in line with its principles and values,” the committee added.

On the five-party meeting scheduled to meet soon under the auspices of the UN, the committee said for it to be successful, it must be first made clear that the positions of the parties are not being discussed outside the established framework.

“We will never accept a solution that will seal the division of our country and we will strongly stand up with all legal means at our disposal, in order to prevent such a catastrophic development.

“The aim is to find a solution that ensures the human rights and, above all, the free return to the currently occupied territories,” the statement said.
