In a statement government spokesperson Prodromou said that President Anastasiades ''is pleased that Mr. Mustafa Akinci, contrary to his proposal on the issue of hydrocarbons on 13 July, in his letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations dated July 10, suggests the convening of an informal conference on the Crans Montana model, basically adopting one of the proposals that the President of the Republic has written in his letter to the Secretary General in his letter of 14 June.''
The President of the Republic is ready to meet with the Turkish Cypriot leader
''The President of the Republic is ready to meet with the Turkish Cypriot leader, either individually or in the presence of Mrs. Lute, in order to discuss the details and the time of convening of an informal, of procedural nature Crans Montana session, in the hope that such an informal meeting, properly prepared, will lead to the resumption of substantive talks.''
''Restarting talks means, of course, that Turkey will also actively contribute to the creation of an appropriate climate by ending its unlawful actions in the Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone and plans concerning the enclosed area of Famagusta.''
Speaking to journalists Prodromou said that "there are no terms and conditions set out from our side, except that it must be clear that any reopening of the negotiations must be conducted in a positive climate. An appropriate climate certainly means that there will be no unlawful actions either at sea or on land. "
