Within the framework of his contacts in New York, President Mustafa Akıncı met with High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security and Vice-President of the EU Commission Federica Mogherini.

President Akıncı briefed Mogherini about the constructive contributions of the Turkish Cypriot side to the establishment of terms of reference and also about the difficulties that the Greek Cypriot side poses against effective participation and political equality.
Reiterating to Frederica Mogherini once again that the efforts to bring Turkish Cypriot institutions to the EU standards have been stalled for over two years, President Akıncı reminded Mogherini that despite  the Turkish Cypriot side’s proposal ofa joint committee on July 13th on hydrocarbons was rejected, the proposal still remains on the table.
