Germany ready to contribute to UN efforts for Cyprus solution

Germany Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Wednesday that his country is ready to contribute to UN efforts to reach a peaceful settlement concerning the Cyprus dispute.
Scholz underlined the importance of neighbourly relations among countries in the region during a news conference in Berlin after meeting Greek Cypriot leader Nikos Anastasiades.
“Germany strongly supports a bizonal and bicommunal solution in Cyprus. Of course, the basis for this would be the relevant UN resolutions,” said Scholz.
“I hope that the stalled negotiations to solve the Cyprus question would regain momentum. Germany is ready to support the UN-led negotiations process, if it is requested,” he said.
He added that Germany would do whatever possible to have Cyprus talks restart based in international law.
Commenting further, he said: “The relationship between the Republic of Cyprus and Turkey is important and the problems should be solved based on dialogue and international law.”
The German chancellor also underlined that the Eastern Mediterranean is a region full of potential with energy resources and economic opportunities.
“Developing good neighbourly relations in the Eastern Mediterranean region is in the interest of all countries,“ he said and expressed hope that problems in the region would be resolved through dialogue and diplomacy.
