The Greek government is in continuous cooperation and coordination with the government of the Cyprus Republic, stated alternate government spokesman Evangelos Antonaros on Monday.
Commenting on the evaluation of Turkey’s European progress, Antonaros stated that this is the beginning of a long negotiation that will culminate either at the EU Foreign Ministers Council or the summit meeting. He also characterized the current stage of consultations as sensitive and reiterated the prime minister’s statement that the European Commission’s proposal on Turkey constitutes a negotiation basis.
Responding to a question on whether there is a coincidence of views with the Cyprus leadership he stated that the two sides were "in step" and had the same viewpoint on the issues.
