Speaking after a meeting at the ministry with Peter Semneby, EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus, Kyprianou pointed out however that countries like Azerbaijan should respect international law and maintain law and order as far as handling Cyprus and the northern Turkish occupied areas of the Republic is concerned.
In remarks after his talks with Semneby, Kyprianou said he was informed on various issues that concern South Caucasus.
“Countries in Caucasus are friendly towards Cyprus and we are interested to see that the so-called ‘frozen conflicts’ are solved the soonest possible because sometimes they turn to heated conflicts, such as what happened in the summer in Georgia,” he said
Kyprianou added that Cyprus, as a member of the EU, “will support all EU efforts to solve these issues and support these countries.”
