President Mustafa Akıncı attended the 3rd award-giving ceremony organized by Havadis Newspaper.

During his speech at the ceremony, President Akıncı touched upon the recent incident, where a missile accidently clashed in the TRNC territory. “We were not the target, but the missile hit on our land, fortunately into non-residential area and there were no casualties," President Akıncı said. "But these missiles fall in the Middle East everyday on innocent children and families. "

Pointing out that Cyprus is a part of this region, President Akıncı emphasized the importance of peace and stability.

Stating that the positions are temporary, President Akıncı said, “We are all human. These positions are not permanent for any of us, they are all temporary.
