Cyprus Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou-Markoullis said her government wanted a negotiated settlement backed by the UN security council.
"Otherwise we risk undermining the whole UN system and its institutions, and this could create a very dangerous precedent,"
Quite. It’s shameful that no fewer than twenty EU members, led by Britain, were prepared to support the breaking of international law and the undermining of the UN and its institutions.
All those who think that international law- and the "UN system" should be respected, should thank Cyprus and the other EU 'rebels' for the stand they have taken.
