President Akıncı received Prime Minister Ersin Tatar and received information on current issues on the agenda. President Akıncı also expressed his evaluations on the matters.
"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.
At the meeting, new arrangements in the British Sovereign Base area were discussed in addition to the developments with regards to the pandemic.
“Our President, Mustafa Akıncı, since the beginning of the process, makes his evaluations and statements about the COVID-19 pandemic within the framework of scientific views based on data given by experts and not based on his personal opinions.
Recalling the utmost effort that he spent to stay away from political polemics by considering the difficult times we are going through, President Mustafa Akıncı said “ I sadly observe that the government had difficulty acting on a common mind and scientific basis even at such a time and chose unnecessary political obstinacy.”
President Akıncı stated that the conclusion reached after evaluating the data on both sides by the Bi-Communal Health Technical Committee is important.
Stating that the government should determine its stance without delay regarding the crossings to the south within the framework envisaged by the Health unit, President Akıncı said “the issue of 1500 families should not be enlarged unnecessarily.
President Mustafa Akıncı said that the issues of public health and making living must bring everyone together in terms of the crossings to the south. “Political party distinction or ideological differences cannot be issues in question. No matter what our opinion is and which position we hold, our common concern is the health of our people,” President Akıncı said.
