Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

For­eign Min­is­ter Nikos Kotzias met with his Cypriot coun­ter­part Ioan­nis Ka­soulides in Athens yes­ter­day to dis­cuss the out­look of the Cyprus peace talks against the back­drop of po­lit­i­cal volatil­ity in Turkey af­ter last week’s failed coup.

“Th­ese de­vel­op­ments [in Turkey] and their reper­cus­sions are of di­rect in­ter­est to both Cyprus and Greece,” Ka­soulides said, adding that both men fo­cused on the se­cu­rity as­pects of a so­lu­tion to the division of Cyprus. The failed coup in Turkey and the puni­tive purges of state ap­pa­ra­tus has, ac­cord­ing to some an­a­lysts, cast a shadow over the prospects of the Cyprus talks.
