Greece slams Turkish ‘mockery’ of international community

Turkish Foreign Ministry announcements apportioning blame to Greek Foreign Minister Nicos Kotzias for the collapse of the Conference on Cyprus in the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana received a sharp rebuttal from Greece accusing Turkey of mocking the international community.

“Turkey continues to mock the international community with statements that show that her audacity has no limits,” said Greek Foreign Ministry spokesman Stratos Efthymiou.

“She has reached a stage where she names the intransigence she displayed at Crans-Montana as a ‘constructive spirit’,” added the spokesman.

Efthymiou referred to the latest statements made by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusolglu in the Ivory Coast on Tuesday, that “it would not be possible for Turkey, in the Geneva Conference, to accept a ‘silly’ proposal’ which would provide for the abolition of Turkey’s unilateral interventional ‘rights’, the abolition of guarantees and the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Cyprus,” as proof of Turkey’s role in the deadlock at Crans-Montana and the subsequent collapse of the negotiations.
