AKEL for Crans Montana: Why didn’t Anastasiades-DISY challenge what the Guterres Report notes for so many years?
Statement by AKEL C.C. Spokesperson Giorgos Koukoumas
14 November 2021, AKEL C.C. Press Office, Nicosia
There is evidently a serious discrepancy between what the UN Secretary General’s Report notes and Mr. Anastasiades’ narrative of what actually happened at the Crans Montana Conference.
The crucial question is one and one only: Why did Mr. Anastasiades and the ruling DISY party not challenge and dispute this Report for so many years?
Whatever the reason for not doing so, the result is that since then the international community has been guided by a Report of the UN which exonerates the occupying power Turkey and apportions the responsibility for the failure on the Cyprus problem on the two communities.
