Eroğlu: “I think Anastasiades will return to the negotiation table”
President Derviş Eroğlu said “Unless the Greek Cypriot leader Anastasiades returns to the negotiation table, we won’t be able to reach a solution, that is why I think Anastasiades will eventually return to the negotiation table.”
President Eroğlu said that people are out of patience due to the negotiations which have not resulted in a solution for so long. Eroğlu added that Turkish Cypriots struggled so much until they established the TRNC, and still spend efforts for solving the Cyprus problem and aim to create a peaceful and secure atmosphere for the next generations.
However, President Eroğlu added that Turkish Cypriots are now faced with a counterpart who left the negotiation table.
