The UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus has been attacked by the Turkish Cypriot police in the buffer zone close to Pyla village during an ongoing work of fixing a road to connect the bicommunal village to the Turkish Cypriot controlled areas. While the Turkish & Turkish Cypriot side citing humanitarian reasons, the international community as well as the permanent members of the Security Councils, barring Russia, condemned the attack. In this episode of Nicosia Uncut, Andromachi Sophocleous and Kemal Baykallı discuss the developments and underline that there is no-such thing as status-quo without a settlement. Against the background, the annual General Assembly meeting in New York will take place in September, efforts for a break-through in the current deadlock of the Cyprus problem talks continue. Is Russia repositioning itself vis-a-vis the Cyprus problem? Is it possible to talk about confidence building measures while the situation in Pyla is still tense? After a short break – Nicosia Uncut is back, discussing politics in Cyprus.
