Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis sees no considerable development over the issue of Cyprus in the near future and assesses that a "crucial" window to an opportunity might open in 2008.
Speaking in an interview with the newspaper "O Fileleftheros", the Greek foreign minister said she did not predict any crisis in Cyprus and the Aegean as a result of political instability prevailing in Turkey.
Bakoyannis further said that a solution to the issue of Cyprus is a steadfast pursuit for Greek foreign policy.
She also clarified that no deviation exists between Athens and Nicosia and pointed out that Greece and Cyprus are two separate countries and exercise their policy independently.
"When there are different approaches, we discuss them," she explained.
