"A Turkish internet portal named A Haber today published fake news under the title of "TRNC President Mustafa Akıncı’s hostility against Turkey continues! Akıncı embraces the Greeks and the British” which is an open attack against the relationship between the Republic of Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus as well as the fraternity of the Turkish Cypriot people with Turkish society. This is not the first organized perception operation aimed for our President.
During the meeting held at the Presidency at 15.00, President Akıncı and Prime Minister exchanged ideas about the matters on the agenda.
