The General Secretary of the National Unity Party (UBP) Ersan Saner has expressed his party’s opposition to a new open-ended negotiations process which would not include alternative solution models.
In a written statement, Saner pointed out that no agreement had been reached in finalizing the terms of reference despite the UN special envoy Jane Holl Lute’s week-long meetings with both leaders.
“Even though the UN special envoy has not been successful the information we have received has deeply concerned our party. We would like to remind everyone that the process had collapsed in Crans Montana. Therefore, it is out of the question for the talks to resume from where they left off,” he said.
The UBP General Secretary added that it was out of the question for the Guterres Framework which envisaged the removal of all Turkish troops from Cyprus, giving away large swaths of territory to Greek Cypriots, including Morphou, and removing Turkey’s right to intervene unilaterally.
“The UBP supports bringing to the negotiating table other solution models, including a two-state solution. Only if these conditions are met will the UBP give it support at the negotiating table. Keeping Turkish Cypriots under embargoes and isolations despite Greek Cypriot intransigence is not befitting of the UN or the EU,” he said.
Saner argued that the Greek Cypriot side has been using the negotiations process for many years to obstruct Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot side as well as to punish the two.
Developments and statements since Crans Montana clearly demonstrate that there is no change in the stance of the Greek Cypriot leadership, Saner concluded.(BRT)
