Tread care­fully

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Talks aimed at the re­uni­fi­ca­tion of Cyprus have reached a crit­i­cal point and the po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship of Greece is mak­ing a mis­take in ap­pear­ing hes­i­tant or even fear­ful of tak­ing a po­si­tion. That said, it should also not be overly for­ward, ig­nor­ing the risks in­volved in such a del­i­cate ne­go­ti­a­tion. The United Na­tions-bro­kered re­uni­fi­ca­tion talks are the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the Cypriot and in­ter­na­tional au­thor­i­ties. There­fore, Athens’s job is to stand by Ni­cosia’s side and give it all of its sup­port by re­spect­ing the red lines drawn by the Cypriot lead­er­ship. This is a pe­riod when the pow­ers of Hel­lenism need to step up to the plate rather than be­come em­broiled in new di­vi­sive is­sues that have cost every­one so much in the past.
