House President condemns Azerbaijan's collaboration plans

Annita Demetriou takes firm action against Azerbaijan's collaboration with government in occupied side


The President of Cyprus' House of Representatives, Annita Demetriou, is taking action against Azerbaijan's plan to collaborate with the "parliament" of the illegal regime in Turkish-occupied Cyprus. She intends to formally address the President of the Parliament of Azerbaijan and her counterparts in Europe to halt this initiative.

Demetriou has also reiterated her call for the President of Cyprus to convene the National Council, the country's top advisory body.

Speaking at a press event in Nicosia on Friday, Demetriou stated, "We have received information regarding Azerbaijan's intentions. It is imperative that we intervene." She has drafted a letter to condemn this proposed cooperation and plans to share it with her fellow lawmakers.

Furthermore, she will directly correspond with the President of the Azerbaijani Parliament and raise the issue at an upcoming meeting with EU Parliamentary Presidents in Spain.

"This is not the first instance of Azerbaijan employing such tactics. We must exhaust all efforts to prevent it. Such actions are unacceptable and condemnable," she asserted.

Cyprus has remained divided since 1974 following Turkey's invasion and occupation of its northern territory. Despite multiple rounds of UN-led peace talks, a resolution to the conflict remains elusive. The most recent negotiations, held in July 2017 in Switzerland's Crans-Montana resort, ended inconclusively.

In addressing the Cyprus issue, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has appointed María Ángela Holguín Cuéllar of Colombia as his personal envoy, entrusting her with a Good Offices role to seek common ground.
