Pikis: “Rotating presidency is a confederation factor “
Former Greek Cypriot President of Supreme Court and judge of the International Criminal Court Yorgos Pikis claimed that rotating presidency is a confederation factor. In his interview to Greek Cypriot daily Fileleftheros, Pikis claimed that rotating presidency is a confederation factor and confidence building measures only provide development of people’s rights living in the TRNC. Pikis also claimed that the return of fenced-off area of Varosha came to the agenda but “this includes only 20% area of Varosha” and referred to relevant UN Security Council Resoultion.
Furthermore, Pikis stated that leaving the issue of territory to the final part of the negotiations is a “mistake” and emphasized that he is against the continuation of the guarantorship.
