Uluçay: “We maintain the will of the solution”

The Speaker of the TRNC Assembly Teberrüken Uluçay stated that a result-oriented, time-tabled, short and intensive new negotiation process can end the Cyprus problem.

In his speech at the ongoing 3rd Meeting of the Speakers of Eurasian Countries’ Parliaments in Antalya, Uluçay emphasized that the Turkish Cypriot side maintained the will of the solution with determination and continued to work with this hope and determination.

Reminding that despite the efforts of the Turkish Cypriot side, no agreement was reached at the five-party conference last year in Crans-Montana, Uluçay said that the reconciliation policy shown by the Turkish Cypriot side on the most sensitive issues such as land adjustment, guarantee and security issues have been left unanswered.

“It is seen that the Greek Cypriot side has not been able to demonstrate seriousness and is also devoid of the required political will in respect of concluding decades of negotiations to bring our island to peace and tranquillity. It is the responsibility of all of the international community to explain to the Greek Cypriot side that the comfort zone provided by the status quo is not sustainable and that the policy of conflict that they insist on exhibiting has risk not only for the island but also for our region” Uluçay said.
