It isn’t true that the AKEL General Secretary prevented the issuing of a joint press statement
AKEL C.C. Press Office, 4th October 2019, Nicosia
The truth is that DISY President Mr. Averof Neophytou proposed a joint statement, including an explicit reference to the solution of bi-zonal, bi-communal federation and the need for an immediate resumption of negotiations.
Members of the National Council reacted to the release of a statement that would include the reference to Bi-zonal, Bi-communal Federation.
Faced with this situation, the General Secretary of AKEL wondered how a joint press statement could be issued, when a common understanding as to the basis of the solution sought doesn’t exist, but also on how the current situation with Turkey’s provocative actions is addressed.
We issue this statement just to restore the truth.
