Ertogan blames Greek Cypriots for lack of solution!

 

June 2018

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan has blamed the Cypriot government for stalling peace talks on the divided island.

Erdogan, claimed the "whims" of the Greek-Cypriot community were responsible for a lack of progress.

"Solving the problems of the world goes through diplomacy. But lately, this is failing. Due to the whims of the Greek Cypriot community, the distance can't be bridged for a solution to the Cyprus problem," he was quoted as saying.

His comments come as Cyprus revealed this week that French energy giant TOTAL had applied to the government to acquire a stake in Block 8 of the islandís Exclusive Economic Zone currently owned by Italyís ENI.

It marks a renewed attempt by Nicosia to harness its offshore resources amid blocking tactics by Turkey. The turkish navy has so far blocked the Italian energy company ENI to enter the area for exploration and remains to be seen what will happen if French or American companies arrive to drill in the same area.
