President Mustafa Akıncı met with Luxemburg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn who is having contacts in Cyprus. In his statement following the meeting, Akıncı said that they have discussed the latest developments on the Cyprus problem and they expressed their own views on the issue during the meeting.
Adding that they also discussed their expectations from the EU in detail, Akıncı said that many Foreign Ministers had visited Cyprus and himself in recent times. Akıncı stressed that the visit of Asselborn is much more meaningful due to being with the title of the EU Term President.
Noting that Luxemburg Foreign Minister invited him to Luxemburg before leaving Cyprus, Akıncı said that the UK and Germany also gave invitations so he will try to do what is necessary within this framework.
Upon questions of journalists, Akıncı said that in September he received an invitation for the Davos meeting and he expressed his positive answer for this meeting. Expressing that this invitation covers the dates of 20-23 January, Akıncı said that the same invitation was also sent to the Greek Cypriot Leader Nikos Anastasiades, adding “In other words, it does not mean that the Cyprus negotiations or the quintet meeting have been moved to Davos. There is not any decision on the issue yet”.
