Main opposition New Democracy spokesman Aris Spiliotopoulos yesterday criticized Washington for pressuring the Republic of Cyprus over the S-300 missiles.
The ND spokesman said that "it is unthinkable that the US government would pressure Cyprus when it itself has attributed to the Turkish Cypriot and Turkish side the talks' collapse."
Mr. Spiliotopoulos also noted that the US is following contradictory policies, which in essence encourage Ankara and the Turkish Cypriot leadership to stop every initiative toward a solution of the Cyprus problem.
