President Mustafa Akıncı said “If they correct their mistake, I will return to the negotiating table the next day.”

Mr. Akıncı underlined that nobody should hide behind any excuse such as referendum process in Turkey , President asked “Who can accept the adoption of a decision for further indoctrination of young generations rather than fostering a culture of peace to ensure the viability of the federal partnership which we are aiming for?”

“If they correct their mistake, I will return to the negotiating table the next day,” the President said. President Akıncı stated that the majority of the Greek Cypriot newspapers’ headlines stated that “election atmosphere has begun” the day after the Greek Cypriot Parliament took this aforementioned decision. President Akıncı continued to say “No one should try to attribute every reaction of the Turkish Cypriots to Turkey as if Turkish Cypriot people do not have their own thoughts, their own will or their own words.  In Cyprus, Turkish Cypriot people are  just as equal as the  Greek Cypriot community and this should be known by everyone”
