Belgium MFA on the resumption of talks @dreynders @BelgiumMFA

The spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium, Hendrik Van de Velde sent us an email asking us to spread their message. So here it is:

“From the perspective of a medium sized EU country, what is important for us is that the result of the negotiations creates a United Cyprus that is a functioning EU Member State with effective decision-making. It is also important that the settlement doesn’t create derogations and caveats to the rights of the Cypriots. Cypriots must enjoy the same rights and protections as all other European citizens. In other words, the settlement has to be compatible with the acquis communautaire and not vice-versa.”

The official statement of the minister can be found on:
