YEREVAN. – Armenia will never recognize attempts to divide Cyprus, Armenian FM Edward Nalbandian said on Tuesday during the joint press conference with his Cypriot counterpart Erato Kozaku-Markulis in Yerevan.

“It is necessary to find a fair, legal solution of the issue. We support Cyprus in this context,” Nalbandian said.

As for the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process, the Armenian FM stressed the role of the mediators directed to the settlement of the conflict.

In her turn, Kozaku-Markulis said that over 45,000 servicemen are placed in the northern occupied part of the island, making the 37% of the territory. While over 200,000 Cypriot-Greeks were deported from the territory and they have no possibility to return back and take back their property.
