Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades` response to the proposal of Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci on the co-management of the natural resources is already being drafted, a government source has told the Cyprus News Agency (CNA). Anastasiades` response will be sent to Akinci as well as to the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres and the EU officials to which Akinci`s proposal was also delivered.

The same source told CNA that the aim is to give, through Anastasiades` response, the message that there is no room for further discussion on the issue of hydrocarbons, and that Akinci`s proposal undermines the agreement achieved between former President, Demetris Christofias, and former Turkish Cypriot leader, Mehmet Ali Talat, on this issue, that was reconfirmed by Anastasiades after his election as the President of the Republic of Cyprus.
