Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Kudret Özersay said on Thursday he had had “no prior knowledge” of Mr Akıncı’s announcement, made on Monday.
He said he had “learned from the press” that Mr Akıncı had thrown down the gauntlet to Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades to accept a “framework” proposed last year by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, which would have seen the abolition of Turkey’s right to intervene.
“I want to hear from the president how this [Guterres] paper that belongs to the failed process in Switzerland will not drag us back to the point of ‘where we left off’ without, as the president himself has stated many times, a change in the mentality of the Greek Cypriot side,” a fuming Dr Özersay said.
