The statement made this morning by Nikos Christodoulides, the Foreign Minister of the Greek Cypriot Administration, where it is alleged that President Mustafa Akıncı rejected to have a social meeting with the Greek Cypriot leader Anastasiades, does not reflect the truth.
“The endeavours of President Mr. Mustafa Akıncı have always been solution oriented and aimed at securing the legitimate rights of both communities. He has envisaged possible developments that may jeopardise the solution process and tried to take measures.
The statement of the President's Spokesperson:
President Mustafa Akıncı’s determination to protect the rights of the Turkish Cypriot people and also his stance regarding the Greek Cypriot side’s unilateral operations regarding natural gas is amply clear and well known.
Presidential Spokesman Barış Burcu stated that resuming negotiations is only possible if the Greek Cypriot Parliament eliminates the wrong decision to commemorate the 1950 Enosis plebiscite in schools.
We are pleased to observe that every day more and more people from the Greek Cypriot community are acknowledging that the decision taken by the Greek Cypriot Parliament to commemorate the 1950 Enosis Plebiscite at schools was a mistake.
Presidential Spokesperson Barış Burcu emphasised that political equality is one of the basic principles of a solution along with the freedom and security of the Turkish Cypriot people.
BURCU: THE MAP PRESENTED BY THE GREEK CYPRIOT SIDE CANNOT BE ACCEPTED, THE PRESIDENT SENT A LETTER TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL IN THIS REGARD
Presidential Spokesperson Barış Burcu said yesterday that “Property” and then “Governance and Power-Sharing” chapters will be on the agenda during the negotiations and added that the matters are being discussed as planned.
It has come to our attention that on a program broadcasted on the Greek Cypriot state television
PIK, their İstanbul correspondent Anna Andreou reported that Turkish Foreign Minister Mr. Cavuşoğlu’s recent visit to the TRNC was in fact aimed at persuading President Akıncı, who was considering resignation, not to resign from his post
