Nicosia aims to prevent the selling of Greek Cypriot properties

Cyprus Foreign Minister, Constantinos Kombos

Cyprus Foreign Minister Constantinos Kombos said that Nicosia is to act preventively by introducing disincentives for selling Greek Cypriot properties in the fenced-off city of Famagusta (Varosha).

In an interview with CNA and asked about the way the government is dealing with this issue after information was published in the Turkish Cypriot press about the selling of Greek Cypriot properties situated in Varosha, Kombos noted that they are very much worried by the latest developments, adding that “these are issues that need to be seriously evaluated, and for our part, we identify both the legal capabilities of the state and the political capabilities of the state” to address the situation. Kombos also called on everyone to listen carefully and consider the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, 's statements on this issue. 

Regarding the efforts aiming at resuming negotiations on the Cyprus problem, Kombos noted that Nicosia wants dialogue on the substance, which has the prospect of leading somewhere and not parallel monologues. We do not consider that a process during which the two sides will express their positions based on different starting points will be particularly constructive, he added.
