Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Omer Akbel told a weekly news briefing that Turkey evaluated the initiative "as a part of Greek Cypriot efforts, with a provocation of Greece, to take place in various institutions and to make itself accepted."

"Basically, this is the core of the Cyprus issue" Akbel claimed.
