“The Conference on Cyprus was closed without an agreement being reached”, said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, after the Cyprus talks in Crans-Montana collapsed.

According to diplomatic sources, the conference ended due to Turkey’s unyielding stance on maintaining the right of intervention and guarantees, a key reason leading to the deadlock.

Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nicos Kotzias, said that “the dream and plan for a solution to the Cyprus problem remains alive”, expressing Greece’s intent to continue the effort towards a fair and viable solution and defending the right of Cyprus to be a sovereign and independent state.

Turkey’s Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said that a solution for the Cyprus problem is not feasible according to the UN parameters.
