He also added that listening to the views of Minister Denktaş on the course of the negotiations process was important for them.

Denktaş for his part said that they had received the plans and cost of the mausoleum adding that construction work will start within this year.

Touching upon the negotiations process, Denktaş said “when we look at the Greek Cypriot side’s statements, they are saying and doing everything to prevent a solution despite all our good intentions.”
