Greek Cyprus rejects Turkey’s proposal for five-way talks

Greek Cyprus rejected a proposal by Turkish PM Erdoğan for a five-party conference, under United Nations supervision, to speed up a solution for the war-divided island. “They want a new Burgenstock and of course new arbitration in order for pressures to be exerted on the Greek Cypriot side to accept solutions that are not new,” Greek Cypriot President Christofias said, according to a statement posted on the Cyprus Press Ministry Web site.

A five-party summit on Cyprus would involve island’s Greek and Turkish sides as well as Turkey, Greece and the U.K., who are all guarantor powers of Cyprus under a 1960 accord that led to the country’s independence from British colonial rule.
