 President Clerides comments on the crisis in TurkeyThe issue of the continuation of the UN sponsored talks on Cyprus is before the Secretary General, who may be contemplating if this is the right moment to set a date for the talks due to the internal crisis in Turkey, President Glafcos Clerides has stated.
Replying to questions on 22 February, President Clerides said the crisis in Turkey might have an adverse effect on Cyprus if it is prolonged, in the sense that the Turkish government will not be in a position to take decisions.
