The leader of the Greek Cypriot Administration Nikos Anastasiades announced that he would not attend the informal multi-lateral conference in Davos where he will go upon the invitation of the World Economic Forum.
The Greek Cypriot daily Fileleftheros reported that Anastasiadis would not participate in any informal and multi-lateral conference which will be held about the Cyprus problem.
According to the news, Anastasiades said “It’s not the time yet for multi-party conference”.
Furthermore, according to the Greek Cypriot news, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide planned to informally bring together the leaders of the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities with guarantor powers Turkey, Greece, and Great Britain during the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.
Speaking on Greek Cypriot radio Politis on Monday, Greek Cypriot Administration Spokesperson Nikos Christodoulides said that a multi-lateral summit will be required when a solution to the Cyprus problem is within reach.
Socialist EDEK also said: “We must express our strong opposition, given that international summits are attended only by recognised states.”
The Greens, also hardliners, called on Anastasiades to “rein in Mr.Eide and his environment”. “When it is leaked that Eide invited President Mustafa Akıncı and the Greek Cypriot Leader Anastasiades in Davos, along with the leaders of the three guarantor powers, unpleasant situations are created for the President himself” the party argued.
