Greece calls emergency meeting as Cyprus talks collapse



Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias has convened the country’s National Council of Security for Monday, to brief all political parties on the collapse of the Cyprus talks which took place in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.

Kotzias is expected to present the Greek case and the efforts the ministry made over a 10-day period, which were "halted by Turkey's intransigence", according to a press release on Sunday.

Kotzias will also clarify that despite the failure to reach a deal in the Cyprus Conference, Greece will "continue to work relentlessly with all means at its disposal, for a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, in close cooperation with the Republic of Cyprus, the UN and the European Union".
