President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades has said that Cyprus is considering the possibility of bringing the case of Turkish provocations in the fenced off area of Famagusta before the UN Security Council, and taking legal action against this case, based on International Law.

In an interview with the Greek newspaper “Ta Nea”, President Anastasiades underlined that the provocative statements made by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu during his recent illegal visit to Famagusta, affect negatively both Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriots.

He also stressed that the ball for a trilateral meeting for the Cyprus Issue lies now in the UN Secretary-General’s court.
