President Anastasiades satisfaction over Barbaros departure
Nicos Anastasiades has described as a positive step the departure of the Turkish seismic vessel Barbaros from the closed port of Turkish occupied Famagusta.
However, the Cypriot President noted that more needs to be done.
He told reporters on the sidelines of the memorial service on the occasion of the anniversary of the 1st April that the fact that Barbaros has left is a positive step, adding that “what is left is for the NAVTEX not to be renewed and for the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus not to be disregarded.”
When asked if UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide is coming to Cyprus to announce the recommencement of the talks, President Anastasiades expressed his ignorance and ambiguity about Eide’s visit.
