TRNC President Eroğlu: “We hope that Mr. Anastasiades will follow an approach appropriate to the aim of the partnership determined in the joint statement”

TRNC President Dr. Derviş Eroğlu stated that statements of the leader of Greek Cypriot administration Nikos Anastasiades, as  “I will never accept those who try to eliminate the ‘Republic Dervis Eroglu - Picture by BRTof Cyprus’ to be a partner of the state”, are “contrary to the spirit of the partnership and are highly desperate and worrisome” and said “We hope that Anastasiades gives up this wrong attitude as soon as possible and follows an approach appropriate to the aim of the partnership determined in the joint statement”.

In the written statement made yesterday by President Dr. Derviş Eroğlu, it was stated:

“At a stage that the comprehensive solution negotiations come to the give-and-take phase and that the efforts for re-starting the negotiation process which stopped because of the withdrawal of Anastasiades from the negotiating table are expected to give results, the statements of the Greek Cypriot leader are highly desperate and worrisome.

With these statements, Mr. Anastasiades comes into conflict with the spirit of the partnership we try to form and come to an agreement on this issue and he behaves against the joint statement dated 11 February 2014 that we undertook and declared together.

We want to remind as a historical fact that the ‘Republic of Cyprus’ which is mentioned by Mr. Anastasiades who refers that we, as Turkish Cypriot side, try to eliminate, was actually destroyed by themselves in 1963 by attacking Turkish Cypriots and the following massacres and coup and also by excluding the Turkish Cypriot partners from all government organs.
