During the joint press conference, Mr. Soltz also referred to the importance of “good neighborly” relations in the Eastern Mediterranean, where, as he noted, there are good opportunities for regional cooperation in the field of energy. “My impression is that Cyprus is willing to contribute in this direction and we hope that the other countries will do the same”, said the chancellor, stressing that its relationship of the Republic of Cyprus with Turkey is important, while problems must are resolved through dialogue, on the basis of international law.

For his part, Nikos Anastasiadis emphasized that Cyprus can contribute significantly to finding alternative sources and routes for energy, while, with an eye both on the Russian attack against Ukraine and on the occupation of territory of the Republic of Cyprus by Turkey – a country seeking to become a member of the European family -, highlighted the importance of respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, good neighborly relations and the resolution of disputes on the basis of the United Nations Charter. As far as the Cyprus issue is concerned, the president of the Republic of Cyprus clarified that “there is no possibility of a solution on the basis of those unjustified and against international law, Turkey claims” for a two-state solution and called on Ankara to change its position, as the prolonged tension will also aggravate Turkey’s relations with the EU. “By insisting on a solution that is not based on UN resolutions, the only thing Turkey will achieve is self-isolation,” he added.
