Qa-37, 8 July 2017, Statement Of Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, In Response To A Question Regarding Some Statements Shared By Greek Foreign Minister Mr. Kocias On His Twitter Account

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 08.07.2017

Turkey attended the Conference on Cyprus held in Crans-Montana between 28 June - 6 July 2017 with the goodwill and constructive attitude we had been displaying since the very beginning of the negotiation process, with the aim of reaching a just and sustainable comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus issue.



During this meeting, which was the last Conference, we exerted sincere efforts for two weeks towards a settlement.



As for the answer to why the Conference on Cyprus failed to succeed, it can also be seen from the remarks shared by Greek Foreign Minister Mr. Kocias yesterday (7 July) on his Twitter account. Mr. Kocias seems to have forgotten that he, with the attitude he displayed, was the one responsible for the Conference's lasting no more than a day in January. The uncompromising and inconstructive attitude that underlies Minister Kocias' remarks was displayed throughout the entire Conference by the Greek Cypriot and Greek sides. The Conference has demonstrated yet again that it will not be possible to reach a settlement in the absence of good faith and political will.
